The sporty chic trend is all about combining sporty pieces such as bomber jackets and baseball caps with chic pieces like crop tops, fitted trousers and asymmetrical skirts. The key to making this look a success is to make sure your sporty pieces are not over powering your chic pieces, or else you’ll look like your’e headed to the gym instead.
