Designers like Joseph Altuzarra, Alexander Wang, Stella McCartney, and Rag & Bone showed off their sportier side for Spring 2012, sending out looks that reflected a more athletic state of mind.

It certainly seemed as if the runway had transformed into a track and field frenzy for the ultrastylish set. To this point, we love the idea of styling stronger shapes and tougher materials against more flirty, feminine pieces — a perfect matchup of girlie accents and the season's sports-minded garb in one polished go. Think breezy striped frocks topped with retro varsity jackets, Alexander Wang nylon tie-shorts contrasted with modern white accessories, or a baseball-inspired sweater worn with flare jeans and quirky wedges.
