We’re currently in a space of fashion wherein there is absolutely no end to experimentation. There is a blurred line between off-duty styles and on-duty. While pyjamas are making cameos at the airport, sportswear is making its way into a more trendsetting category also known as athleisure. The mixing and matching of styles along with not following any traditional fashion rules is the new rule. Speaking of, one such sportswear staple that almost every celebrity to influencer is seen sporting is the sports bra. Given that bralettes are such a rage, it comes as no surprise that sports bras are also considered as chic elements.
However, one would wonder how to elevate a look with a sports bra and here’s my observation: it’s easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy and can work for formal wear to casual wear and evening wear even. Allow these bloggers to show how you can get on board with the sports bra trend as more than just a workout staple.
Ahead, we show you how 6 bloggers incorporated sports bras into their everyday outfits:
1. Santoshi Shetty
The easiest piece to team a sports bra with is a pair of baggy jeans or trousers. Given that sports bras are tight and body-hugging, it is advisable to wear them with loose clothes for a more balanced look, just like Santoshi. Her black boots further upped the sporty oomph of her outfit. Perfect for summers and the monsoon humidity, noh?
2. Masoom Minawala
Tracksuits are one off-duty staple that everyone, from stars to bloggers is a fan of. Wearing them with a sports bra is one sure way to add a sensuous vibe to the outfit. Masoom’s Burberry tracksuit is a perfect equation of relaxed yet alluring, don’t you agree?
3. Aashna Shroff
Co-ord sets and shorts-suit are yet other ensembles that are the rage everywhere. To juxtapose a sporty yet chic vibe with the playful vibe of a shorts-suit, opt for a sports bra. Aashna’s all-pastel look is so easy-going yet so stylish! Pro tip: wearing sports bras under unbuttoned shirts is a sure-shot way to up the ante of your outfit.
4. Shivanii Patil
Sports bras for beachside? Always a yes-yes! Shivanii’s white trouser + white cardigan combo was given a burst of colour via her fuschia pink sports bra, which also added a playful spin to her otherwise elegant and sophisticated look. They’re also perfect for when you want to take a dip in the ocean and want to steer clear of bikini tops.
5. Juhi Godambe
Correct me if I am wrong but long, tiered skirts = summer/spring staples. Agree? And that with a sports bra is a perfect sundowner outfit! Love that Juhi teamed her skirt with a simple white sports bra and made it a statement-making outfit. Should you get cold in an ensemble like this, throw a scarf or a cardigan over and you are good to go!
6. Shereen Sikka
If cycling shorts are allowed with blazers, who’s to stop sports bras? Donning them under pantsuits or only blazers can make up for a quick desk-to-drink outfit. I am absolutely gaga over Shereen’s striking, animal printed blazer that she wore over a black sports bra.
