Tips for Looking Chic at a Basebell Game
When choosing an outfit for a baseball game, or other outdoor event, it is not necessary to sacrifice fashion for utility. Whether attending with friends or a significant other, it is still possible to look chic while wearing weather appropriate, comfortable and casual clothing. Consider the following tips when getting dressed to update the basic uniform of jeans, a sweatshirt and sneakers.
Fitted jeans in a dark wash are a perfect option for game day. They are casual enough to be appropriate for the stands (and resistant to showing the stains from a dropped hot dog), but dressy enough for post-game drinks.
Forgo the baggy logo t-shirts and sweatshirts, there are chicer ways to show your team loyalty. Retrieve that team baseball cap from your closet (the older the better) and save some time on styling your hair. If you do not have one already, thrift stores are great resources for finding interesting vintage caps.
When spending any amount of time outdoors, layered dressing is always important. Luckily, cardigans remain huge for fall, with designers like Rachel Comey showing models wearing two or more at a time. Take advantage of the trend, and wear layers that can easily added or removed as the game wears on. Boxy boyfriend sweaters in wool make great outer layers, and are on trend for fall.
Lastly, have fun with accessories. This may not be the time to showcase your heirlooms, but fun costume jewelry is a great way to punch up an outfit and start a conversation with seatmates. Mardi Gras beads are inexpensive and festive, and various online party supply shops offer baseball themed beads online by the dozen so you can keep some for yourself and share some with your fellow fans.Steven Street is a contributing writer at Toomeys.
