I was that girl who pretended to play soccer by standing in front of the net giggling with my fellow defence woman. I was the one running to my gym instructor in tears because I got a basketball in my face. I was the one that nobody wanted on their team (no matter what sport we were playing) and was almost always picked last. Let's just put it bluntly. I wasn't very athletic as a child, nor as an adult.
If you were like me (or still are), you can still look like an athlete because it happens to be the biggest trend of the season. Sport chic is the new peplum and nobody can get over it. Every April Issue from Dress to Kill to Elle Canada is shooting models in jerseys and sneakers. What gives?

I don't believe in blindly following trends just because all the Jourdan's and Cara's are doing it. Reinvent this look to suit your own taste. Or if you're like me, add a feminine twist.
