Trend Watch! Sports Tops for Soccer Mums

On April 30, 2014 by Style After Nine

Motherhood is a sport, a test of endurance, mental agility and skill. I have been told in a couple of years I will be ferrying MG around to his various activities cheering him on from the sidelines. I will become a ‘soccer mum’.

With the World Cup fast-approaching it seems the fashion world has scored its own style goal with sporty alternatives to the T-shirt. The sports luxe trend that has bubbled over the last few season, has finally erupted with a 90s-like proclamation of team spirit. Traditional sports kits from the world of football, American football (this is a British blog!) and baseball have been given a glossy makeover, with vivid prints, interesting fabrics and details giving mums a fashion-forward option for sporty dressing, whether they’re on the run, in the park or nursing at home.

Your checklist should include:

  • Airtex
  • Sporty Ribbed Trim
  • Numbers
  • Raglan sleeves
  • Crew Necks
  • Bog sleeves for hiding soft upper arms
  • Boxy cuts for hiding mum tums
