5 Looks To Help Your Daughter Celebrate National Girls & Women In Sports Day


Moms know firsthand that it’s not always easy growing up as a girl in this world, which is why finding new opportunities to empower our daughters is so crucial. And while there are plenty of activities that inspire self-love and boost confidence, sports seem to top the list for young women. Athletics remind girls that they can do anything, whether it be running, kicking, or jumping to new heights.

In honor of National Girls & Women In Sports Day (NGWSD) on Feb. 5, Romper partnered with Athleta Girl to get moms excited about celebrating the budding athletes in their lives. On a day that’s all about encouraging girls to develop skills that allow them to grow into powerful women, what better way to celebrate than by treating your daughter to an outfit that’ll keep her feeling strong no matter how she loves to get moving?

Keep scrolling and start planning how you’re going to encourage your girl’s limitless potential on this special day, and beyond!

This look is a total home run for your fave softball star. Whether she’s pitching, at bat, or in the outfield during practice, make sure she feels as comfy as she does stylish. A soft and stretchy tank perfectly pairs with sweat-wicking cropped tights, and a speckled pattern hides dirt stains so she can give her all to the game without *ever* having to think twice.

With all that kicking and goal-scoring, soccer players need clothes that will move right along with them — on and off the field. Surprise her with some light-as-air shorts with a drawstring that ensures zero tugging, and top the look off with a seamless shirt that even comes with a hair tie. She’ll be able to get dressed, throw her hair into a pony, and focus all her energy on tearing up the field.

When she’s outfitted in a breathable Equal Play tee and fun neon shorts, your hoops lover can show off how much game she actually has. She can dribble, shoot, and score with the help of relaxed fits, and little details like roll sleeves and a lip balm pocket in her shorts will make her feel like the MVP you already know she is.

Not a moment goes by without her twirling, pirouetting, or jeté-ing. That’s why your girl needs an outfit that’ll keep her spinning and leaping all the day long. Ultra-stretchy camo print leggings won’t get in the way of her movements while a thumbhole-equipped hoodie works for warm-ups and beyond (did someone say an after-school ice cream run with mom?).

She’s a pro at supporting her team and she needs an outfit that can do the same for her. From tumbling on the field to making a statement at the top of the pyramid, easy breezy layers are key — like soft joggers that keep her toasty on the sidelines. Add a shirt with a confidence-boosting “dream crazy big” slogan on the inside of the hem, and she’ll stay motivated all the way into overtime.

With looks like these, your girl will be ready to take on whatever the game — and the world — brings her way.
