With the dog days of summer slowly drifting by, it’s only right that we start gearing up for the upcoming cooler months of our beloved fall. And while putting together your season staples, make sure you pick up some of the latest in this year’s fall fashion with some athletic inspired looks that will be sure to have you racing to the mall.
Designers like Marc Jacobs, Céline and Stella McCartney have been hard at work putting together some of the latest fall fashion picks. Some of their styles include bold and racing stripes, padding, structure and high collars, reminiscent of equestrian riding uniforms.
Many of the looks offer a tailored and designer style, but with a sporty twist. One of my favorite looks would have to be the soccer ball inspired sweater designed by Marc Jacobs.
The combination of white and black pom poms offer a contrast that resembles a soccer ball and the zipper-back enclosure also make for a great over all look.
If the designer prices are leaving you heading for the hills, you can always recreate these award-winning looks with pieces right from your closet or favorite places to shop. For example, try pairing some ribbed riding pants that you can pick up from American Apparel or H&M with a long sleeved white button-up shirt with a high ruffle collar, which you can find at Forever 21 or even Walmart! This look will be sure to have you derby ready.
So will you be conditioning your fall wardrobe with these athletic styles?
