Super Bowl Sunday Style

cute outfit for a baseball game

When it comes to sporting event style, I’m a seasoned veteran. I grew up going to a lot of games and grew out of wearing lame team t-shirts pretty quickly. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for school (or team) spirit, but prefer to show my pride by styling an outfit that incorporates the team colors instead.

However, there’s a whole different category that we need to think about. What do you wear to games when you could care less about the outcome or the teams playing? Here are my thoughts…

There are plenty of reasons that you could find yourself going to a sporting event without remotely caring about who wins or loses. Whether you got invited to a game, got free tickets from your boss, simply dislike sports are going to the party for the food, or are just tagging along for the tailgating , it’s a bit more challenging to figure out what to wear when you aren’t trying to rep a certain team.

If you’re going with a boyfriend (or even a friend or boss) who cares about the outcome of the game, do yourself a favor and just align yourself with that team for the day. Everyone’s happy!

If both teams have a common color, wear that. For example, the Super Bowl last night. Both the Patriots and the Seahawks have navy blue as one of their colors.

If none of the above apply, I always opt for a look that’s a teensy bit sporty, comfortable, and put-together. But whatever you do, please please don’t look like one of those girls that are trying WAY too hard. Unless it’s a heeled bootie in the fall or winter, you probably shouldn’t be wearing any sort of high heel to a sporting event. A slight wedge sandal in the spring or summer is fine, but leave the stilettos at home!

I picked up this Rails plaid shirt at a little boutique in the Hamptons last summer and I’ve worn it for quite a few games and watch parties since. (I wore it last night at my apartment for the Super Bowl, too!) The material is so soft and I bought it purposefully oversized so it was extra comfortable. I love how I can wear it open, layer it under a sweater, tie it around my waist, tuck it into a skirt, or wear it on the weekend with jeans.

I wore this outfit to a baseball game (the Mets at Citi Field) early in the fall. (If you couldn’t tell by my tan… #tbt) I tied my pom-pom scarf to my bag so I would have an extra layer when the temperatures dipped after sunset. I wore my plaid shirt open and untucked, layered over a simple t-shirt. Paired with my Converse sneakers and cross-body bag, it was the perfect casual and comfy outfit for sitting at a baseball park for a few hours.
