Sporty Chic: Forever 21 Varsity Stripe Sweater

Sportswear-inspired styles are right on trend this fall.  This season, the sporty looks that have emerged from the major runways are quite sophisticated, a word we probably don’t usually use to describe athletic clothing.

Most recently, at Saint Louis Fashion Week, Viktor Luna and Jennifer Chun presented two fresh takes on the sporty chic trend.  I was especially drawn to ‘s collection, which infused athletic details in a fun and feminine way.

When I spotted today’s featured Varsity Stripe sweater by Forever 21, I knew it was coming home with me.  It’s a medium weight, black sweater with cream varisty stripes on the sleeves. It also has a very luxe look for its under $25 price tag.

    I love this outfit! I am huge fan of all black. The stripes on the sweater and texture in the shorts keep it from all running together.

      Thanks for stopping by, Cheryl! I've been wearing a lot of black this fall, which is unusual for me. I'm such a huge fan like you are 🙂

      Thanks, Cassie! I bought these shorts for an event during STLFW and didn't think I would wear them again, but I've worn them twice since. They're not too shabby for cheap faux leather shorts from F21.

      Thanks, Te'Rea! I totally feel you…I find the varsity sweater much more doable than the jackets.
