F21 Runway to Real Way | Sporty Spice


Forever 21 jersey top, beaded mini skirt, sneakers, bracelets

Sporty Spice was always my favorite Spice Girl. She represented that female muscle strength (backflips and all) that blew everyone in the room out of the water. She was the ultimate icon of girl power and a blatant expression of self confidence with her own body. Who says we have to only wear tight dresses and heels to get what we want? A girl aware of the way her inner/outer strength rather than the way she bats her lashes . . . now that's a girl who's got groove. And it seems like the fashion industry is finally playing Sporty Spice back up in a fresh new way for spring/summer 2014, adding some sparkle to the already glowing team spirit.

Sacai and Rag & Bone's current spring/summer 2014 collections each interpret the new sport trend in different ways. Sacai being more straightforward, extreme shape minded, and almost extraterrestrial in a sense. They collection takes perforated jersey material and polyester windbreakers to a whole new level.

Rag & Bone went more in the direction of east coast tennis loving prep, with a sharp attention to menswear tailoring that the brand has always been known for. Low cut necklines and belly baring crops turn what would otherwise be full on sportswear into something ready for a night out in the city.


Decadently layered jersey knits. High top sneakers with mid-length skirts. A backwards baseball cap updated with neon highlights. Striped socks pulled high and tight. Jersey tees with sequined trimming. Sporty meets spice, literally. A toughness sweetened up with an airiness that only comes out to play in the summertime. Stilettos with sweatpants. Preppy polo shirts with beaded harem pants. Sneakers with cocktails dresses. Bring it on. 

 Girls play games just as good as the boys, and we easily can look a thousand times better doing it. Why not keep this an ongoing statement? Forever 21 keeps the duality of this trend on point with their mix-and-match aesthetic that doesn't say you have to choose to go down one style route or stick yourself into a corner forever. Kick a ball around while you drink champagne. That's how we want to do it nowadays. And nobody can judge us for it.
