The game of baseball is as American as apple pie or a can of Coca-Cola, and it is a staple in the summer months. Spending a summer night at the ballpark of your choice with friends or family is a good time and great memories just waiting to happen. The stadium is filled with people representing their favorite teams and city and because of this, one’s outfit can become “basic” so to speak, but this Fashionisto’s look is anything but!

Sporty chic and athletic wear has been a trend that has stuck around for a while now and doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Before recent years, it was looked down upon to be seen wearing a sports jersey to anywhere but a sporting event. Now it has become the norm and can add a cool and unique element to any outfit!

This Fashionisto is rocking a Kansas City Monarchs jersey, which is a team from the Negro Baseball League of the ’60s and since this team is no longer around makes for an interesting and conversation starting focal point for the look. Some would just pair this piece with a simple shorts and sneaker combo but this Fashionisto took it a step further by balancing the vintage feel of the jersey with the trendiness of acid-washed skinny jeans along with his classic Vans sneakers. He threw on a tropical backpack that adds another fun element to the outfit and seems to pull together this “outside-the-box” ensemble.

What’s your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “I find it important to dress how you feel. This Monarch jersey represents an important part of my city’s history and I’m always proud to wear it and I’m never afraid to spice it up and modernize it as much as I can.”
