Cheerleaders work hard to execute routines, stunts and dances.
Yet they take to the sidelines with confidence and make it look so easy.
Today’s hottest varsity cheer outfits have squads looking and performing better than ever.
10. Flexible fit
Gone are the days cheerleaders have to tug and squirm under itchy, stiff polyester. Athletic cheer uniforms with a flexible fit are made from moisture-wicking fabric to keep them dry and comfortable in any weather. This athletic material showcases cheerleaders’ athletic abilities while still helping the squad look polished and eye-catching.
Fashion designers have used cut-outs for years in high end clothing. The peak-a-boo effect adds a playful, flirty touch without altering the quality. Some of the hottest varsity cheer outfits have at least one cut-out, often on the back or shoulders. Worn with clear bra straps, these outfits make a sharp impression.
Once again, uniform trends borrow from street fashion, incorporating distinctly vintage details. Long sleeve shirts with sporty stripes and the school’s name featured prominently nod back to the 1950s when squads first began wearing coordinated outfits with a team look. Skirt lengths were impractically long back then (and not likely to ever come back) but this kind of simple design stands out in crowded competitions.
7. Styles that shine
Cheerleaders have a lot in common with dancers, often they’re one in the same. It’s fitting that dance costume elements help raise the bar for cheer squads, too. These outfits feature one color with an almost metallic sheen to bring contrast to the overall look. The result is stunning.
Many squads, particularly those that compete, like mixing up their outfits each day to show the judges something new. Few teams can afford multiple uniforms, but wearing shorts instead of the skirt changes the look completely. Popular styles are stretchy with accents on the sides.
In place of the usual skirt and top combo, some teams are sporting dresses. Similar to dance outfits, they fit snug around the top with pleated skirts to allow for kicks and jumps. As long as cheerleaders wear the right size, these dresses offer the same range of movement as two-pieces plus they don’t have to readjust the top.
For those who live in cold regions, there’s nothing hotter than staying warm. Cheer sweaters help the team keep spirits high when the score is low and shivering crowds start eyeing their warm cars. They’re made to go over a sweat-wicking inner layer.
3. Strappy Tops
Strappy and halter-style tops offer a clean, fresh take on the classic look. The feminine cuts paired with a skirt or stretchy short and some strong moves is pretty hard to look away from. The style flatters all body types and looks best with either sports bras with adjustable thin straps, halter straps or clear straps. Keep the team warm by adding matching arm guards when necessary.
2. Off the shoulder
Tops with a wide neckline that hangs off one shoulder have a little extra edge. A thin shoulder strap detail keeps the fit comfortably in place. This asymmetric design in a sporty mesh fabric is ultra modern, which makes them super exciting for the squads who get to wear them first.
1. One sleeve
Tops with one sleeve are some of the hottest varsity cheer outfits being worn today. Don’t worry, this sporty cheerleading uniform offers girls full coverage. The design leaves plenty of room for customization including sparkles down the sleeves and the team name across the front. A number of college squads are adapting this powerful, surprisingly athletic style. Getting the right fit is important with this outfit so make sure everyone measures twice before ordering!
