Whether you’re a huge sports fan or not, chances are that your summer plans involve a few sporting events. From supporting kids’ teams to friendly pickup games at the local park, and especially Major League Baseball matches, anyone can appreciate a day at the diamond.

But supporting your team doesn’t mean you have to leave all sense of style behind. Fashionable alternatives to the traditional ball cap and jersey mean you can root, root, root for the home team—and look good doing it.

Jerseys and Shirts

When you’re gearing up to go to a game, the first thing you’ll reach for is probably a T-shirt or jersey to prove your loyalty. Sure, you could go for an oversize jersey, but with more fitted and feminine options like this Tri-Blend V-Neck Baseball T-Shirt, why wear something that doesn’t suit your personal style? Whether it’s a cute raglan T-shirt or a fitted V-neck jersey, you can support your team without leaving your style in the dugout.

Jackets

What’s more iconic than a sports jacket for sporting events?

Even something as stylized as this Opening Ceremony Reversible Silk Embroidered Varsity Jacket looks appropriate when you wear it with a simple T-shirt, skinny jeans, and a great pair of classic sneakers.

When choosing a baseball-style jacket, remember to look for a slouchy bomber shape, and contrast cuffs and collar to really nail the look.

Fashion Hats

No matter whom you’re cheering for during this July’s MLB All-Star Game, you can show off your personal style with a super cute hat.

A military-style hat, like this New Era Camo Cap still proudly touts where your loyalty lies, but definitely stands out in a crowd.

Unexpected shapes, patterns, and even brighter colors give your team spirit extra panache.

Accessories

Sporting event style doesn’t have to be limited to the field: you can show your support long after the lights shut down with subtle accessories.
