Did you shop super cool D.C.-based online retailer ANTHOM at Thread this past weekend? The ANTHOM crew's style is always on the cutting edge, so we wanted to see what they are loving for spring 2014. After the jump, co-founder Ashley Turchin picked out three sporty trends that can be dressed up or down. Keep reading, because it's culottes time.
Miista "Patti" Waffle Sole Sandals, $150
Track Soles: Turchin picked out chunky sandals with a contrasting sole. "We are loving track soles - specifically these white waffle soles for spring," she said. "This pair is an ANTHOM exclusive designed by our team in a collaboration with Miista. They're comfortable and wearable but special - we'll be wearing them all spring/summer."
Culottes: They're baaaack. "This higher waisted long short is a great 'fashion' take on a normal short or a-line skirt."
achro skinny track pants, $45
Sporty track pants: "Track pants are the epitome of easy, comfortable dressing with a bit of edge. These pants have replaced jeans in our book - this pair specifically has done very well for us, they are well-made in a silky poly blend so they're easy to dress up or down."
