Summer is here, and while some of us might desperately be grasping for our leggings and bomber jackets, let's be real: breaking a sweat is not on anyone's to-do list, even if being comfortable is. The athleisure trend still has quite the influence on street style, and although certain sportswear pieces might not help you bode well in summer temperatures, there are definitely others that will. Below, we have rounded up some of the best ways to make the most of your sports-inspired outfits... approved for the hottest of weather.

Pumped Up Kicks

Summer is all about exploration and trying new things, and your style should be no different. Interesting details and patchwork can make all the difference, especially if you're looking to get out of your stuck-in-the-office-all-day rut. You know what they say, ladies: a little change is good for the sole.

Oh So Sheer

Showing some skin has never looked so good. Mixing sheer garments with pieces like sports bras, sneakers, and cropped t-shirts creates a look that is effortlessly chic (and manages to tap into that '90s nostalgia that's been coming on so strong). Chiffon and organza fabrics instantly add a touch of femininity to any outfit.

Bodysuited

You read it here first: bodysuits are back. They function as the ultimate summer uniform and can easily be paired with your favorite kicks and baseball hat. Rock them with denim cutoffs for sporty beach vibes.

Cut It Out

Take your sports bras to the next level. Cutouts with interesting silhouettes are an easy way to add a cool element to your summer athleticwear look. Try wearing one of these pieces with any high-waisted bottom (like a maxi skirt) to balance out your outfit.
