Urban Cool
If the prospect of a wearing a sports jacket makes you raise an eyebrow, here comes an interesting proposition: Wear a long skirt under it to earn you both a fashion nod and instant street cred. Form-repelling activewear pieces suddenly make for great daytime looks.


Tip: Earn extra style points for keeping the look duo-chromatic. Choose a subdued hue and pair it with a bold, fiery color for that complementing yet striking effect.

Streetwear Poise
In this built-to-move lifestyle, reinvigorate your look with easy pieces that come in headstrong colors. Take a yellow tee out for a spin in the city with pops of red-hot accents thrown in for that energetic frisk fit for the season.

Tip: Play with your new erogenous zones. Flaunt that midsection you’ve been working on with a cropped top or tee.

Sporty Sensual
The sports raincoat is a runaway hit among athleisure enthusiasts. Bat away the outdated notions on it. Yes, you can wear it anywhere (out of the gym an all through your morning commute) for as long as it comes in this sleek, sexy iteration.

Tip: Don’t play by the rules. Leave the zippers of jacket undone for a welcome surprise of skin.
