When it’s time to dress up, sometimes it's hard to get out of those sporty clothes, and let’s face it, they’re comfortable - who would want to wear anything else? But when you really do need to step up your style, there’s no need to completely forgo your sporty roots. There are a few items that can transform that plain, old tee into a fabulous outfit staple with the help of the right skirt, coat or timeless accessory.
Classic Baseball Tee
To compliment the classic baseball tee, a green parka keeps the laid back vibe intact while black leggings or skinny jeans make for a more refined alternative to sweatpants. Keep the casual feel with converse sneakers or black combat boots, and when the weather turns chilly, swap the baseball cap for a cute knit beanie for the ultimate sporty weekend wear.
Pair a plain hoodie with a jean vest - it gives it a little something extra that shows you put some thought into your outfit, and didn't just reach for the nearest sweatshirt. Black pants and a black cap keep the basic hoodie down to earth, and a colorful stopwatch adds practicality and retains the sporty element.

Plain Gray Sweatshirt
The plain gray sweatshirt or t-shirt can take quite a glamorous turn. For evenings out, it’s totally acceptable to pair them with a pretty bubble skirt, and for this, the more outrageous the skirt, the better. Feathers, sequins, patterns, glitter - anything with a lot going on at the bottom is manageable with a plain top. Heels matching the color of the skirt work best for dressy occasions, but depending on the event, you can even get away with an ultra-cool pair of Converse. Accessorizing with gold necklaces and earrings brings some much needed glitz up top.
