Keep it subtle
The sporty look is mostly confused with the funky appearance. This is the reason why people think that the athletic appearance won’t go well on a gentleman. This is not true! You can don a sophisticated appearance even in athleisure attire unless you are dressed up like Kanye West. Instead of going with the baggy and jazzy attire, try the sleek ones. Keep the entire ensemble elegant and try to hit the right note in between being stylish and going over-the-top. The sport-inspired look should not be very boyish. Ditch the slogan t-shirts and try the solid shades or the subtle prints.
Skip the dress shoes
The footwear can single-handedly bring a lot of change in your overall look and is one of the key components of a dapper look. The semi-formal is the best option for the gentleman sports style. If you are in suit and chinos, then, make sure that you don’t wear dress shoes with it. The loafers and sneaker are the ideal options. Even the flip-flops and sandals are in vogue this season. However, make sure that you don’t wear socks with them. While with the sneakers, you can wear a pair of ankle socks.
Play with colors and patterns
Play around with colors, patterns and prints, but make sure that the shades that you are choosing match your skin tone. The classic shades like gray, black and white are never going out of style. However, you can even ditch the neutral shades and go with the bolder ones if it suits you. Having said that, dressing in one color is the most recommended and the safest option for the elegant look. Combine different textures of the attire. At the same time, you can go casual in the bottom half. Jeans, chinos and even shorts at times can do the magic for you. You can choose any contrasting color when it comes to bottoms. However, make sure that you don’t compromise with underwear styles. Only go for the snug fit styles of men’s underwear.
