This post originally appeared on Style of Sport, a website dedicated to obsessively covering the intersection of fitness and fashion in an active lifestyle. It’s half sartorialist, half sweaty, and we love it.
While we love those bright and splashy colors for summer, the graphic punch of contrasting black and white stripes, patterns and color blocks have a chic style that is hard to beat. Swimsuits, surf leggings, tennis jackets, boat shoes, and more, this summer’s sportiest looks go best in black and white.
