This week’s currently craving item, really isn’t an item, it’s a trend; sporty spice. No, not sporty spice from the Spice Girls. The fashion trend that hit the runway during fashion week. In his [second] show for Balenciaga, Alexander Wang showed us just how to wear this fashion trend. The model in this image is wearing a structured crop top with a tennis skort. However, there are many ways to sport this trend! The thing that makes this trend unique is the fact that there are several different trends within it. For instance, you have:

  • Sporty Mesh
  • Bomber Jacket
  • Embellished bomber
  • Track Pants
