Fashion homerun: What to wear to a baseball game
Headed out to the ball game? Along with those peanuts and cracker jacks, why don’t you buy yourself a cool T-shirt and hat?
The baseball park is a great place to try out the tomboy-chic trend. One easy formula? Cutoff shorts, a breezy T-shirt and a baseball style cap atop a loose braid or ponytail.
Here’s how to be a fashion all-star at your next to a baseball game.
Ditch the full-length denim so you’re not roasting in the stands. Denim cutoffs are making a major reprisal for the summer and because they’re so casual, they’re perfect for laid-back outings like baseball games, backyard barbecues and picnics. These distressed cut-off shorts have a peek-a-boo pocket lining with stars and stripes for an Americana twist. Women’s Cut Off Denim Shorts, $26 (plus 2% Cash Back), oldnavy.com
Root for the home team in a baseball-inspired T-shirt. We love the casual-cool look of a “baseball shirt” — a lightweight T-shirt with a colored neckline and sleeves. For a modern twist on the classic silhouette, toss on this cool-girl burnout shirt with a cutouts on the neckline that show a lil’ shoulder. This Derek Heart burnout tee, $30, nordstrom.com
Top off your look with a classic baseball hat. J.Crew has teamed with Ebbets Field Flannels, an outfitter known for expertly reproducing vintage baseball paraphernalia after researching the logos of historical teams. We’re loving the girl power behind this cap. It features the emblem of the Brooklyn Eagles, a 1930’s team that was owned by Effa Manley, the first woman ever to be elected to the Hall of Fame. This hat comes with an adjustable metal back and leather strap. Ebbets Field Flannels for J. Crew Brooklyn Eagles Ball Cap, $49.50 (plus 3% Cash Back), jcrew.com
Looking for a new neutral? We love treating chambray as one. These chambray Keds will put a little spring (or, ahem, summer) in your step! They pair just as great with darker denim as they do brights and other neutrals. They’ll be comfy enough to escort you to climb up to your seats in the nosebleed section or to take a tour of the ball park.
