If you are being mindful of all tips and tricks, I guarantee you can look poised even in the simplest Nike Top.
That said, ahead are the 8 tips to dress sporty and classy at the same time. Enjoy ladies!
1. GO FOR CLASSIC NEUTRAL HUES FOR SPORTSWEAR
While a green neon windbreaker is a statement piece, we just can’t deny the beige jogger pants are more of our daily grab-and-go choice.
Despite the cost per wear of neutral hue clothes are always much lower, these shades just never go out of style.
Whether you go for a sleek white tennis dress or versatile black leggings, it just looks classy and put together without trying too hard.
So ladies, if a classy sporty look is what you pursue, buy fewer seasonal hues and invest smartly in black, white, beige, and more!
2. GO FOR A CLASSY POLO SHIRT
Want to look preppy and sporty at the same time?
A Polo shirt is your best friend.
Not only it’s perfect to dress up and down, this classic piece just makes you look smart and decent in the most effortless way.
For a cute, timeless look, team a dusty pink polo with A-line high-waist dress and white sneakers just can’t go wrong.

3. ADD A BLAZER TO YOUR ATHLEISURE LOOK
Is that just me adding a blazer on anything is just failproof. And yes, that includes a sporty-chic ensemble.
Feeling too plain with a black hoodie and leggings? No worries as once you throw on the long structured blazer, you’ll never feel anything missing from your outfit.
If you want to integrate a dash of chic boss lady vibes into your casual sporty look, a blazer is here to finish up your look.
4. REACH FOR THE HIGH-NECK TOP FOR A PUT-TOGETHER LOOK
To look sporty and classy at the same time, you have to be strategic with your tops and bottoms.
If you are wearing yoga pants and chunky sneakers, go for a crisp white turtleneck knit top just elevate the style tenfolds.
All kinds of high-neck tops, whether it’s mock neck or collar tops, it always trick people you’ve given serious thought to the tasteful look.
One tip though, if you are a round-face girl like me (love my chubby cheeks!), always opt for an oversized high-neck top for a flattering look.
That can make your face looks smaller in comparison.
5. QUALITY OVER QUANTITY FOR A SPORTY LOOK
Admit it, ladies. We all know quality over quantity but sometimes we are just so tempted to buy something with an unreasonably low price during Black Friday. ( No guilty, we’ve all been there)
If you want to look expensive 24/7, definitely avoid those $ 7.99 see-through white leggings.
Trust me, investing in one pair of Lululemon (or any high-quality) leggings is way more worthwhile than buying three low-quality that you don’t feel good in it and end up leaving it in the closet forever until the decluttering day.
Buy smart, not more.
6. ELEVATE YOUR SPORTY CLASSY STYLE WITH A STRUCTURED BAG
Seems no one talks about it but a structured classy bag never fails to do the trick to balance off the casualness of the sporty weekend and look LIKE MAGIC.
Instead of going for a sloppy Canvas tote bag, go for a lovely pastel blue handle bag to freshen up the look is always darling.
It’s amazing that even if you are wearing all simple and laid-back, a statement bag will always draw people’s focus from your overall look.
That just works every time. With this combo, the outfit just says “I am feeling casual today but I’ve got style so WATCH OUT!”.
7. PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR FOOTWEAR
So you want to wear sneakers, but what kind of shoes can help you stay classy?
Personally, I would say pointy-toe tennis shoes. While they aren’t the trendiest shoes, they are definitely the most timeless.
Featuring its sleek cutting and leg-flattering pointy toe design, it’s always in style.
If you want to take this game to another level, opt for faux leather to boost the aesthetic even more. Whether you team it with white pants or a pleated skirt, it just works wonders.
8. WHEN IN DOUBT, GO MONOCHROME
Can you look classy in loose-fitting jogger pants? Yes and nothing quite beats a monochrome look.
Layering all similar color shades together, just makes you look united with your look and make you appear to be taller and slimmer.
For the petite girls out there, you are bound to feel fabulous in a monotone co-ord set. Simple yet stylish.
