Sport & Style With Joy


Introducing Emily McCarthy’s 2023 sport line, where we’re keeping things active and joyful. With our tried and true spot cheetah pattern, we’ve decided to add some joyful fashion to your workout/everyday lifestyle and wanted to share some styling tips for athleisure on the go!

For the lovers of all things color, our “Pop Cheetah” print is made just for you. With an assortment of fun and bright colors, your mood (and workout) are sure to be elevated.  For those who like to keep it simple, but still love a pattern, our “Noir Cheetah” is a perfect balance. While still sporting the spot cheetah print we know and love, the color palette is a chic black & gray with all the same great detail.

A matching set is a reliable choice when it comes to feeling stylish in your athleisure, but what more could you add for a simple statement? 
Starting off with “Pop Cheetah”, The Bow Tank and Downtown Legging are an obvious pairing choice. After owning best dressed in your pilates class, the set could use a little extra accessorizing while going through your daily routine. For the active lifestyle, you may want to keep it simple with a pair of huggies, a scrunchie to keep your hair back, a matching fanny pack and your favorite sneaker.

If you’re a boss babe like Emily, you may want to transition from workout mode to office chic. A simple black or white blazer could be thrown over this look to bring in some class and block out the office AC. Add a pair of black loafers, some gold jewelry, a matching clutch and everyone will know who's boss.

Another matching set that we can’t get enough of is our Noir Cheetah Ruffle Sports Bra paired with the Serena Skort. This look is sporty and flirty, so it’s perfect for your tennis or pickleball match but also a shopping and brunch day downtown. The black & white striped waistband brings so much character to this look and hugs the waist for a comfortable cinched fit. To spruce up this look, I would pair it with some white hoo hoops, your favorite sneaker with a ruffle sock, and a simple white headband for an added flair. To help carry your active lifestyle, our Pop Cheetah Duffle Bag is the perfect accessory for added color and can hold all the necessities (includes a yoga mat strap!). 

Now for more of a street wear look that everyone needs in their closet, say hello to the Pop Cheetah Ruffle Bomber and Sport Short. With the lightweight nylon material, the bomber is perfect for breezy summer weather and such an easy throw on and go piece. The Sport Short is a must have for those who love a cinched high waisted short. We would pair this look with a black or white bodysuit for color contrast, a simple ball cap to keep things sporty, and a sneaker with a little pop of color. If you’re loving the beaded jewelry trend, a few layered necklaces would be a perfect addition to this look!

Tune in every week for more Emily McCarthy styling inspo!
