jacket to let your team colors fly. When it comes to your look,
sporty should never mean sloppy.
Do you remember
when athletic-inspired fashion was a loose pair of pants, T-shirt and
baseball cap? What about a pair of yoga pants and a tank? Those days
have come and gone. In 2012, we saw a full-court press from fashion
designers adding athletic influences into both their menís and womenís
collections. Now, in fall 2013, those sporty fashion upgrades are
finding an even sleeker home in boutiques near you. Varsity and bomber
jackets ó perfect for layering ó as well as side-stripe

you have your heart set on head-to-toe team colors, the best way to
rock them is to use a neutral to break them up. Toss on a white

jacket with gold piping to "go Pack go." Or, a green
button-up with jeans and red kicks can show your Bucks pride without

Fit to Win
choose to wear a trendy athletic piece or team color combo, always pay
close attention to fit. Sportswear does not translate into a sloppy,
two sizes too big, "I may have slept in these clothes"
