Spring 2014 Trends: Sporty

Well, we made it through Monday, ladies. As a reward, your guide to the biggest fashion trends for spring continues tonight.  There are so many fun trends to try this season, and you don’t have to go broke doing it, either. For the next two weeks, I’m going to be breaking down all of the hottest trends for spring, and giving you tons of options for working them into your closet.

Tonight: sporty.

What to look for: Anything that reminds you of your high school sports days: stripes, numbers, laces, mesh and more. I love the retro aspects of this trend, too. Some of the pieces below are straight out of the 40s and the 70s. Bold, strong stripes and graphics and an almost ‘Harlem Globetrotters’ feel.

What to wear it with: Part of the fun with this trend is mixing it up — the second item below combines both athletic-inspired stripes AND lace … it’s so unexpected! Mixing these pieces with other more modern pieces could be a lot of fun.

Here are 12 wallet-friendly sporty pieces to try this spring —
