Indian sportswomen have always been compared to Indian sportsmen in terms of skillset, strength and perseverance. As in any other profession, these women have struggled to find their way up and have proved that sport sees no gender. And it shouldn’t. When these girls are not sweating it out on the field making and country proud, they’re out there spreading awareness about the significance of young girls taking up sports as a career. These girls are not only amazing at what they do, but are also super fashionable! From getting featured in editorial spreads to giving interviews on TV, they’ve stunned us with how fashionable they can be! So let’s take a look at 6 such sportswomen who are acing the fashion game better than you think.

The captain of the Indian women’s cricket team not just kills it on the pitch, but also IRL with her unique choice of style. She recently dazzled on the cover of Vogue where she pulled off a stunning black bustier with trousers that showed us a different side of her personality!

This stunning lady is a golf player. Yes, a sport that we think only men play, thanks to the movies. She’s the youngest Indian golfer to qualify for the Ladies European Tour and has 11 wins on the Women’s Gold Association of India. But what we really want to bring to the limelight is her flair for fashion which is clearly seen in her outfit choices. Her work fashion game is always on point! We love how she gave a retro twist to her golf outfit. The world needs to see more of her fashion and we seriously think she could give bloggers some tough competition!
