I realize that I haven’t done a simple fashion post in a while. I’ve been so focused on fashion school and work that ironically, I haven’t been able to indulge in the pleasure of talking to you guys about my favorite thing, fashion.
While I don’t enjoy telling people what they should wear (don’t get me wrong- I love dressing people up, I just feel that I shouldn’t rampage over other people’s personal style), I am hopeless when I start talking about what I want to wear. It’s like my mouth has gone full motor. No stopping this girl when she starts talking about her clothes.
And I make a lot of fashion choices in life, as we all (consciously or subconsciously) do. Every day I coordinate everything from my bra and panties to my clothes to my socks and to my hair, makeup, and jewelry. (If you ever see me, just know that any garment or even streak of eyeliner on me has had at least a few seconds of thought put into it.) What I wear usually depends on what I am doing that day, where I am going, or plainly how I feel.
Today I want to talk about what I would put on to go to a sports game. To be honest, I rarely go to watch games, especially not baseball. But I do sometimes go to watch football(I mean soccer. I lived in London so bear my British.), and every time I find myself standing in front of my wardrobe asking myself the same questions: ‘Does this look sporty enough?’ ‘Would this outfit shield me from the football possibly flying my way and hitting me in the face?’ ‘Does this look too fan-girly?’
Well, as a proper fashion student, I did my work and came up with some outfits to wear to my next sports match, which is unfortunately not the Super Bowl since I’m in Seoul. BUT you’re free to make these outfits your own if you are lucky enough to go watch the Super Bowl. : ) Just come back after and tell me how the game was. If you’re in need of tickets to a sporting event you can check out TickPick. They’re a no-fee marketplace that offers NFL tickets, along with tickets to other sporting events, concerts and more!
#1. The all-out fangirl
I once did a post about this look. This is my friend Jiyeon in a soccer outfit and red sneakers. I mean, why not just go to the game looking like your favorite player? Complete with red inflatable sticks to cheer your team on-I love that they match the sneakers, by the way- this is probably the equivalent of me dressed up as Harry Potter at the bookstore on the night of the release of a new book(which I actually did for ‘Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince’, in London). So yeah, I understand how it feels to be passionate, baby. Also, I just love the color coordination going on here. The deep turquoise-ish blue, the white, the bright red, and the green in the background-wonderful splash of colors.
#2. All black chic
I actually really like this photo that I took. I know Anna Wintour would disapprove of this outfit(“Not feeling for any color, are we?” she might say) but I think it looks perfectly fine for a day out with friends at a football game. And a man to man tee shirt with a little wool on the inside is not only comfy but also warm, especially since it’s still quite chilly outside. The stars on the sleeves could maybe be replaced with your team name or team symbol. I also think legging-style skinny pants add to the total comfort of this game day outfit, complete with a Samsung phone in hand (gotta take pics at the game, duh). I guess the makeup could have been a little stronger(team colors, maybe) but I just went for the natural look here on my sister and fastened her hair with a hair clip.
If you’re not into looking too enthusiastic at the game or are just a naturally very chic human being(like I pretend to be but fail), I’d recommend this look.
#3. The ‘I-kinda-dressed-up-for-this’
This is what I’d wear to a game if it were a date. First of all, before anything, I love having flannel shirts draped around my hips and thighs. It just makes me feel cool and all hipster whenever the ends flop around when I walk. (Oh stop judging, we all know how fashion can make us feel.) The hair is another big YES for me because, since I was a kid, I’ve always been into Bohemian-style, braided, wavy hair. The sweater on top is simple but not boring, and the socks are a nice touch to the whole outfit. I feel like this is the outfit that says, ‘I’m not too into sports but I’m here anyways coz I’m that cool and, oh, also stylish.’
