The straight lines and colors of athletic gear inspired this collection. Tennis dresses, a sporty V neck, and mesh top look good on or off the court. These patterns are from the July 2014 issue of Burda Style magazine.
Hit the tennis court in the Halter Dress with Pockets. A mix of fabrics like Matelassé and bouclé have subtle textural contrast in bright white. This sporty style has a flared skirt, halter neck, and front pockets.
The V Neck Blouson Jacket has a sporty cut with voluminous sleeves and a deep V neck. It’s a casual topper for any outfit. Make the cuffs in a contrast color for your favorite team!
Applied ribbons are an unexpected way to add stripes of color to a dress. This playful style has a square neckline, knee length, and patch pockets with ribbon details at the neck, sleeves, hem, and belt.
Contrasting raglan sleeves and an exaggerated V neck band emphasize the figure for a prettier take on the baseball tee. Make this top in your team colors for a cute football night tee!
The Wraparound Halter Dress has it all… colorblocking, wrap details, a leg slit, and a figure hugging fit. The halter style wraps around the neck for an extra kick. Style it sporty or sexy!
The Wrap Skirt makes a great beginner project. This one is lightweight with a hip yoke, wrap detail, and lots of gathers for visual interest.
This Tank Dress with Front Zip is almost cut like a sports jersey, with wide tank sleeves and a bright yellow color. Details like a full length front zipper and patch pocket finish the athletic wear look.
This Mesh Top is cut like a batwing style, but the shoulder seams stay open as wide sleeve vents. Put this sporty style over a bikini or wear it to the gym with a plain tank.
Color blocking gives these mid rise shorts extra punch. They’re cut loose from the hip for a nice change from super mini styles with a contrast waistband and front pockets.
Contrast side panels in a darker color create a slimming effect in the athletic chic Zipper Neck Dress. The zippered neckline is right on trend with 90s style.
The Racing Stripe Pants borrow style from striped workout pants. Make them in a bright color for 80s flair. Crepe de chine has a whole new look and makes racing stripes elegant enough for the city streets.
Athletic wear was a big influence on Spring 2014 runways. This collection pulls from designers like Calvin Klein and classic basketball and tennis styles. Cop their style with these fun designs and bright summer colors.
