Love the sporty look, but don’t know how to wear it? Take cues from the off-court looks of NCAA and UAAP lady spikers: Brandy Kramer, Gema Galanza, and Carmela Tunay. These 3 styles will help you rock sporty chic with ease:
3 Ways to Pull Off the ‘Sporty Chic’ Look
3. Go monochromatic.
Head-to-toe blacks, whites, and grays, look effortless and cool. San Beda Red Lions’ Lady Red Spiker Brandy Kramer combined all three neutrals by wearing black leggings with a white cropped top and white jacket. She puts on a pair of gray sneakers to complete her look.

2. Don bold prints.
Gym clothes come in nice prints that you can wear with casual pieces in varying materials for a bold sporty look. Try this by wearing printed dri-fit shorts with a nice jacket in a shiny material and a pair of retro lace-ups just the way Adamson University lady spiker Jema Galanza likes it.

1. Show off some skin.
The thing about sportswear is that you can get away with showing a little more skin without looking tacky. You can wear a cross-back swimsuit worn as a top and pair it with gym shorts for an off-duty sporty look that’s a little sultry. Keep things from being too sexy by tying a jacket around your waist like Carmela Tunay.

See? It’s completely possible to go straight out to meet your friends even if you’re still in your gym clothes. Just come prepared and bring some extra accessories to ‘casualize’ your look! :)
