How to Dress Up the Sportswear Chic Look

Sports t-shirt and fedora
I’m not sure it quite classes an Indian summer, but the warm glow of the sun on this walk across the common was gorgeous this weekend.

Typically super casual for a pottering around type of Saturday, I went with my Adidas 1972 t-shirt (when you find a sportswear tee displaying your year of birth you have to get it, don’t you?), loose go-faster stripe trousers and tennis shoes. Not to mention some great accessories: my Accessorize camera bag for my phone, keys, cash, etc. and my new favourite piece of jewellery – the tough cuff from brand new label Yosa. How well do these two pieces complement each other…?

Yosa is the brainchild of my BBFF [best blogging friend forever] Rachel the Hat – if there’s anyone whose taste in jewellery and accessories I’d want encompassed in an online store of jewellery and accessories, it’s Rachel’s. She very kindly sent me a few pieces to review, and first up is this black and gold cuff which I’m so pleased to say has an adjustable fit and actually fits my awkwardly thin wrists perfectly. Top marks to her for creating a collection of very affordable, very desirable pieces – if you visit, good luck choosing just one statement necklace or pair of earrings… you’ll want them all!

Do you go for the sportswear look at all – and do you like to add a little bling like me, or do you keep it pared down? Do you own an item of clothing with your year of birth on it like my ’72…? Do share in the comments!

    Just love your camera bag, such a nice feature to an outfit and I think it contrasts well with the sport casual look. B x

    Adding a little bit of bling to athleticism is essential really, isn't it?

    How novel and cute is that bag! Love your overall look Catherine and yes, I would love that tee with 1960 quoted on it 🙂

    The camera bag is super cute. Perhaps just what I need….what with me being the photog and all. 😀
