A sporty-casual outfit with stripes, jeans, and (elevated) sneakers.
Lately, I’ve been leaning into my own version of Sporty Chic. My friend Lisa might call this look “Polished Tomboy.” Either way, it feels right for the times. Relaxed, (a little) refined, and very comfortable.
This post is sponsored by Nordstrom. All ideas as my own. The clothing and accessories are my own as well.
A striped sweater or top is such a timeless style, and a great way to add visual interest to a simple outfit. Stripes also mix nicely with other patterns. And Vince makes such nice sweaters! This one’s a very lightweight wool/cashmere blend. I’m wearing the XS.
This is one of my favorite jeans styles, the AG Prima Crop. This style has a mid rise and cigarette (slim) leg, and runs a little smaller than my other Prima’s. I’m wearing a 28.
Slip-on sneakers have been my go-to shoes these past few months. I first purchased a pair of these Vince platform sneakers in black about three years ago. (When I first put them on, I told le Monsieur they felt like “a thousand angels caressing my feet.” 🥰 ) So I was thrilled to find them in this warm tan color! They’re just as delightful to wear as my first pair.
In addition to being comfortable, they’re good-looking and easy to style. They’re more refined than a classic sneaker, but still sporty. The platform adds a modern edge and nice visual volume (great to help balance longer or fuller clothing styles). This style tends to run about 1/2 size large. I’m wearing a 7.
Nordstrom carries a wide selection of footwear brands, including my favorites: Vince, Paul Green, Cole Haan, and ECCO. They offer free shipping and returns, or you can order online for curbside pickup at their stores.
