Best Sporty Suburban Outfits + Summary

Everyone’s best Sporty Suburban outfits.

Look of the Week: Chelsey.


Why: Sporty casual is just another look we should know how to create. It is very middle America, even though we catch glimpses of it over here (puffy vests….. unfortunate) because it’s good for running errands. The key is to create a relatively basic outfit, and add one piece that’s considered “sporty.”

Accomplishments: We dealt with horribly timed cold and rainy weather. Maybe it made it easier to wear leggings and jeans. The outfits were cute regardless of the weather, even if they did look more Spring or Fall than Summer.

Improvements: Staying fashionable. We need to work on keeping the outfits trendy and fashion forward. If you have to create an outdated, rushed, or sloppy look to fit the theme, take a step back and think outside of the box. Try something new. Google outfits to emulate.

Sporty Friday

Cutest sporty outfit was Kristen in all black and a flannel. Cute quick outfit for on the go.

Friday’s People’s Choice goes to Lauren.

Extra GRG point – Vanessa, Kristen & Jena

Outfit Suggestions: Vanessa admitted her outfit looked like she was going to the gym, but a piece that would have changed that would have been her denim jacket, or a different colored top.

Kristen – Tank: Garage, Flannel: Garage, Leggings: Garage, Sneakers: Vans
Jena – Tee: Garage, Flannel: Garage, Jeans: Garage, Sneakers: Converse
Vanessa – Tank: Garage, Sports Bra: Garage, Leggings: Garage, Sneakers: Converse

Sporty Thursday

Cutest sporty outfit was Vanessa in a ribbed dress and plaid.

Thursday’s People’s Choice goes to Vanessa!

Extra GRG point – Vanessa.

Outfit Suggestions: None today. The only comment I have is that April’s outfit is exactly how I picture girls from Chicago dressing. The puffy vest is a true white girl piece. And apparently I consider Chicago a white city.

Vanessa – Dress: Garage, Plaid: Garage, Denim Jacket: Garage, Sneakers: Converse
April – Top: Garage, Vest: The Northface, Jeans: Garage, Sneakers: Converse
Lauren – Tee: Garage, Vest: Garage, Hoodie: H&M, Leggings: Garage, Sneakers: Converse, Socks: Garage

Sporty Wednesday

Cutest sporty outfit was Safari Ana.

Wednesday’s People’s Choice goes to Adriana!

Extra GRG point – Jena

Outfit Suggestions: Jena looked super comfy, but was more casual than sporty. A swap-out could have been Converse for Birks, and no jacket (even though it was a lil chilly.) Chelsey’s look might have been sportier without the scarf… The dress was a little too  girly itself. I respect the decision to expand the shoe variety, but the Clarks weren’t enough this time around.

Adriana – Tee: Garage, Jeans: American Eagle, Sneakers: Nike, Hat: Obey
Jena – Tee: Garage, Plaid: Garage, Leggings: Garage, Jacket: Garage, Sandals: Birkenstock
Chelsey – Dress: Urban Outfitters, Scarf: Garage, Sneakers: Clarks
Lauren – Tee: Garage, Flannel: Garage, Shorts: Forever 21, Sandals: Steve Madden, Hat: Garage

Suburban Tuesday

Cutest suburban outfit was Monica in the most High School outfit of all time.

Tuesday’s People’s Choice goes to Monica!

Extra GRG Point – Vanessa

Outfit Suggestions: Chelsey’s look would have been better suited with a straight denim jacket, although the one she chose was an interesting element. Vanessa’s look was cute and girly, but what would have made it sporty would have been a different top underneath her jacket… Maybe a baseball tee. Another option could have been the denim jacket around the waist. Was a little fancy, the sneakers kept it casual.

Monica – Tank: Garage, Hoodie: Forever 21, Jeans: Old Navy, Sneakers: Converse
Chelsey – Dress: Garage, Denim Jacket: Garage, Sneakers: Converse, Hat: Love Culture
Vanessa – Tee: Garage, Skirt: Garage, Denim Jacket: Garage, Sneakers: Converse
Lauren – Tee: Garage, Dress: Brandy Melville, Windbreaker: Garage, Sneakers: Converse

Sporty Monday

Cutest sporty (suburban) outfit was Ana. Looking like Ash Ketchum.

Monday’s People’s Choice goes to Adriana!

Extra GRG point – Vanessa, Chelsey, & Adriana.

Outfit Suggestions: None today. But Vanessa’s hoodie around the waist is a good example of a necessary third piece. Without it, her look is basic. But with it, automatically sporty.

Adriana – Tee: Garage, Vest: Cherokee, Jeans: Garage, Sneakers: Nike, Hat: Nike
Chelsey – Tee: Garage, Vest: Nike, Jeans: Garage, Sneakers: Nike, Hat: Portland Gear
Vanessa – Top: Garage, Hoodie: Old Navy, Jeans: Garage, Sneakers: Converse
Lauren – Tee: Vintage 80s Soccer Tee, Skirt: Garage, Sneakers: Vans, Scrunchie: Garage

Sporty Sunday

Cutest sporty outfit was Chelsey in mesh leggings and a flannel. She looked super sporty, but not like she was going to the gym.

Sunday’s People’s Choice goes to Chelsey!

Extra GRG point – Vanessa, Chelsey & Jena.

Outfit suggestions: April looked relaxed in a hoodie and a dress, but one more element would have taken it up a notch, like a necklace. Jena’s look actually could have been completed without the sweater around her waist. The sweater cluttered the sporty look. Vanessa’s outfit also would have been sportier without the plaid around her waist. Sometimes a third (or fourth) piece distracts from the outfit rather than adding to it.

Chelsey – Tee: Garage, Flannel: Garage, Leggings: Garage, Sneakers: Converse
April – Dress: Garage, Hoodie: H&M, Sneakers: Converse
Jena – Top: Garage, Denim Jacket: American Eagle, Sweater: Garage, Leggings: Garage, Sneakers: Converse
Vanessa – Sweatshirt: Garage, Plaid: Garage, Shorts: Garage, Sneakers: Airwalk
