How to dress for a sporting event
One of the most exciting pastimes in life is going to a sporting event.
Sports, be it a football game, basketball playoffs, or even a weekend race at the track, makes us all feel alive. The passions run high, and the air is filled with hope.
And let's be real it's another great time to come up with a cool outfit and show off our styling chops.
Most sporting events are either canceled or played without an audience at the moment. But luckily we can still recreate at least some of that experience in front of our TVs!
And that experience includes both a variety of snacks (yum) and fun outfits (yay).
So, how to dress for a sporting event?
What's the sport?
It's kind of obvious, but sometimes you're only told it's a "match", so make sure you know what sport will you be watching with the family or friends on zoom.
You don't want to wear a football jersey for an NBA game or a soccer shirt for a baseball game, - says Dolcelou.com.
If you're not a sports enthusiast, make sure you have your answer in advance and avoid awkwardness later.
Team jerseys & colors
Official team jerseys are usually the first wardrobe choice for loyal fans and those who want to show their support.
If you don't have any official clothing, or if you're just tagging along, you can always wear something with team colors. Ask your friends what are the team colors or look them up online.
According to Fabulousafter40.com, sometimes you don't own any clothes in the team color or find those colors hard to wear. No worries, you can always choose something neutral and add the team color with accessories such as a cap or scarf!
No heels or too many accessories
Many women will argue that heels go with everything, but maybe it's best to skip them if you're going to stand for a long time or jump up and down cheering your team on.
The same goes for accessories. You don't want to get tangled up in your hoop earrings or too many bracelets. Keep it simple and comfortable!
For a football game outside
Some places allow small gatherings outside, so if you're lucky and are planning to watch a football game in your local stadium or park, make sure you wear plenty of layers!
Unless you live in warm climates, winter outdoor games require preparations. The temperatures can shift quickly from dropping to heating up with the sun. Don't forget possible snow or rain!
Be ready with multiple layers you can easily add or remove: shirt, sweater, vest, jacket, and of course a hat, scarf, gloves, and warm boots!
Add some team color to the hat or scarf as you can wear them in any weather.
For a basketball game
You've seen the celebrities sitting courtside, and they always blend glamour with athleisure.
That's a great way to dress for a game in front of a screen too. Who doesn't want to feel like Beyoncé sometimes?
Go for something simple like comfy jeans, an old-school team t-shirt, and a stylish cap. Or pair an oversized hoodie with sleek leggings and add a pop of glimmer to your makeup!

For a hockey game
Nothing gives better winter vibes than a hockey game! If you have a hockey jersey - you're golden. Simply pair it with leggings and Uggs to feel snug and comfy.
If that's not the case, you can always wear an oversized t-shirt and a pair of ripped jeans or slim merino wool sweats.
Lastly, if you're lucky and will watch the game live, don't forget a fun beanie!
For a baseball game
Most baseball games take place in summer, but there are plenty of reruns of classic and legendary games on TV and online.
If you're a fan, it's always fun to spend an afternoon snacking and following the game (even from the couch).
Make the occasion count and wear your favorite team jersey or if you don't have any, pair bike shorts with a bright colored crop top to feel like it's still summer!
Spend some time finding out the teams' colors and styling the outfits from your summer clothes wardrobe or your local vintage shop. Finally, don't forget a baseball cap!
For a horse race
Maybe horse racing isn't the number one sport worldwide, but it's fun to watch and perhaps place a bet or two.
Also, who doesn't look at the horse race outfits thinking - I want to wear this someday!
The hats, the dresses, the glamour! Recreate it all at home, since there aren't many occasions to wear our evening clothes right now anyway.
Think sundresses, jumpsuits, rompers, pastel or bright colors, and of course, a fabulous hat or headband!
