Sporty Styling—the M.M. Way: 7 Movement-Friendly Outfits That Happen to Be Right On Trend
Office-approved, action-ready outfits you can score right now.
If you have a long-running relationship with our clothes, you already know our stance when it comes to trends. New to M.M.? Here’s a quick replay: While timeless designs crafted from functional fabrics will always remain the name of our game, we also like to incorporate fashion-forward pieces and of-the-moment colors.
This fall, we’ve noticed one trend coming down the runways that plays especially well with this philosophy, and that is “sporty” styling. From stretchy, sleek materials to super-streamlined silhouettes, sporty elements have entered the arena of everyday fashion in full force. To be clear, we’re not talking about athleisure. There’s a time and a place for track pants, fanny packs, oversized puffer jackets, and baseball caps, but most days, we prefer to rely on looks that are a little more elevated.
That’s why this month, for the latest edition of our Power Casual Report series, we’re showing you what sporty styling—the M.M. way—looks like in action. Below, we put together seven Power Casual outfits that are especially movement-friendly and conveniently right on trend.

The M.M. Elements of Sporty Styling
#1: Stretchy Fabrics
Not to brag, but we’re kind of known for our use of secretly stretchy fabrics—key word: secretly. Even our most agile styles maintain an element of structure, so you may feel like you’re wearing pajamas, but you’ll always look put-together.
#2: Streamlined Silhouettes
If we’ve learned anything from sportswear, it’s that an active lifestyle has no place for fussiness. Say goodbye to overly complicated pieces you’ll find yourself fidgeting with or excess fabric that will weigh you down.
#3: Ease of Care
Even if you’re not breaking a workout-level sweat in your sporty styles, you probably don’t want to run back and forth to the dry cleaner’s if you can help it. That’s why we make sure the vast majority of our pieces are machine-washable. Some even feature Polygiene®, an all-natural anti-odor finish that allows items to go longer between washes.
