Like it or not, sportswear has gone ready-to-wear and celebs like Rihanna and Miley Cyrus are trying to ensure that jerseys get a moment just in time for fall. Fashion jerseys, however, aren’t just for the sporty! With the proper styling (a la Miss Fenty,) the boxy garments are downright sexy. They’ve even been spotted on the runways–Jeremy Scott, Alexander Wang, and Jullen David are all jersey chasers, featuring the trend in their S/S ’13 shows. But, are jerseys real-world wearable? How do you make the piece less court-side and more…cute? We have the scoop! Read on to find out how to rock the fall jersey trend.
- Ditch the pants. An oversized jersey fully doubles as a dress if you’re daring. Add a pair of tights to keep things PG.
- Show some side boob. Or, you know, a peek at your lace bandeau. Wide armholes of basketball style jerseys ensure that shape is shown, but the amount is totally up to you. For maximum Miley impact, pair this jersey with a pair of micro shorts and sky-high stilettos. Here at Mieux & Mieux, we actually have the perfect pair of shorts to get you started!
- Chop it off. Instead of chopping her hair, Model Cara Delevigne perfers to crop her tops. The brit beauty has been spotted in a midriff-grazing Chicago Bulls jersey and Chanel sneakers…perhaps the best fashion-meets-sports collab we’ve seen. To copy her take on the jersey trend, go for a child sized option or simpy take some sheers to a well-fitting jersey you already own.
- Accessorize the $#!T out of it! The true key to copping a celebrity jersey look? Jewels, of course. Play up the contrast on your sporty threads by paring any jersey with layers of bracelets, fab shades, killer pumps, and a statement bag. Seriously, go crazy. It’s what all the cool kids (Read, Jourdan Dunn, Chiara Ferragni, and Rita Ora) are doing!
