WHAT TO WEAR: Sporting Event

What to Wear

With the 2014 FIFA World Cup transpiring, you will see a multitude of people sporting their favorite team’s jersey. Don’t be afraid to join the movement and take advantage of the opportunity to represent the team of your choice! After all, who said that jerseys aren’t fashionable?

When attending a sporting event, whether it’s a World Cup soccer game or a local, minor league baseball game, one should always be dressed for the occasion. Aside from wanting to cover your face in the team colors, you should also consider wearing a shirt that shows where your alliance lies. Take a look at this Fashionisto, who is wearing a French jersey that happens to be both trendy and practical. As any sporting event can escalate into a frenzy of excited fans, it’s wise to wear something that is comfortable and lightweight. This Fashionisto’s jersey would be perfect because it’s made of a special sweat-wicking fabric, which is light and flexible. It will also allow him to jump up and cheer for the winning goal without worrying about disheveling his look.

He wore his jersey with a pair of loose-fitted, light wash jeans. Note how he cuffed the jeans at the bottom. This adds a summer feel to the outfit and provides a little bit of extra breeze. He completes his outfit with a pair of all-white sneakers. The white shoes complement the white collar and white details in the shirt. All that he’s missing are a nice pair of sunnies to protect his eyes from the blaring sunshine!

Following in the footsteps of this Fashionisto, find your inspiration from the many people showing their dedication to their favorite teams during the World Cup. Take note of how they wear their jerseys and what they pair them with. Ladies, this goes for you as well! A sporting event is an awesome way to meet new people and find unique ways to show your devotion to fashion and sports.

One Simple Change: Following the sporting event (depending on whether your team lost or not), you may want to change your shirt into something more appropriate for an evening of tailgating. Try a simple T-shirt or pullover sweater! A sweater may be a better choice if it gets chilly at night or if you want to avoid getting too many bug bites.
