The 2012-2013 NBA season kicks off tonight so in order to make sure we all look as stylish as possible when cheering on our favorite teams, I am going to give you some Game Attire tips.
The great thing attending NBA games is that we no longer have to be slaves to men’s t-shirts, jeans and unattractive flats. As far as I am concerned, some of the most stylish outfits I see are now sitting in arena bowls.
I won’t go too far into this subject but I do think that the Ladies NBA apparel selection, t-shirts especially, really needs some work but luckily, we don’t have to wear t-shirts to show our team spirit. All you have to do is wear your team colors and you are good to go! Whether that is in your shirt, pants (thank God we are in a colored denim fashion moment), jewelry, shoes, or even your makeup!
If you are going to go with wearing a team colored top or pants, my favorite look is a looser/flowy top with skinny jeans and heels or flats-keep in mind some of those stairs in arenas are brutal so if you aren’t so good in heels on flat land, maybe wear flats instead.
If you prefer to keep your clothing team color neutral but still want to show your support, use your teams colors as eyeliner inspiration! A few years ago I was able to meet Rihanna at an Orlando Magic game and as mentioned in my earlier post here, I became obsessed with her Magic blue liner (photo above is actually from that night) and even ran out and got some the next day! I still rock the blue liner from time to time to show support for my Magic.
If you are a die hard and just must wear a t-shirt with your teams name on it, please at least make the shirt as stylish as possible and pick one with a little more shape. Women’s sporting apparel tends to stick with the same trend across the board, stick a team logo on a baby tee, throw on some crystals, maybe add some pink and you are good to go! Well, what they have failed to consider is that the female sports fan demographic has greatly expanded and now includes fashionistas all over the world. I have faith that one day this will change.
Now that I have given you my game day style tips, I expect to see you all in arenas across the country cheering on your fave teams!
