Sporty fashion—think windbreakers, sneakers, hoodies, and logo-emblazoned tracksuits—is an integral part of the American woman's wardrobe, regardless of whether she's made the cut or is grabbing a cup of coffee at the corner café. Athleticwear doesn't have to be relegated to the track; varsity is a state of mind. Tap into your inner champion with inspiration from our favorite designers, below.

Isabel Marant Étoile

Ready yourself for warmer days ahead with Isabel Marant's drawstring hoodie. It's lightweight, bohemian means this elevated sportswear piece can be worn off (or on) the court.

Balenciaga & Celine

Balenciaga and Celine have a knack for leaving their stamp of cool on traditional pieces. Roll up in this fluorescent tracksuit or go the more subdued route with logo'd track pants, a bucket hat, and triangle top to show off your killer abs.
