What to Wear to a Basketball Game

So you have a game to catch this season but haven’t yet decided what you are going to wear. While watching a game on TV with your buddies can be fun, it will never be the same as catching a game live. Going to a basketball game is more fun than staying at home, don’t you think?

Representing your favorite team can be done in a subtle and fashionable manner. Miuccia Prada, one of the most influential fashion designers, said

“what you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today when human contacts are so quick. Fashion is an instant language.”

Well, we couldn’t agree more. In this article, we are going to take a look at the most stylish clothes you can wear to a basketball game.

1. Shoes

Basketball shoes are some of the trendiest, must-have sports shoes on the market. With newer versions being released every single year, it is very easy to come across fashionable and affordable basketball sneakers that you can wear to your next game. Here are some sneakers that are worth wearing to a basketball game.

Nothing beats a pair of Jordan sneakers, matched with a stylish pair of jeans. When choosing the type of pants you want to match with Jordans, opt for pants that are more subtle and basic so that your Jordans are the center of attention.

You spent some money on them, why not flaunt a little bit and let your friends know which team you are supporting? Nike’s Air Force 1s are retro shoes that have been fashionable since they were first released in 1982. Rocking these shoes will keep your style simple and attractive.

2. Pants

Keep your style basic yet cool with a pair of nice jeans. There are different types of denim pants, which are perfect for a basketball game.

For starters, wearing skinny jeans will make you look taller than you are— height is respected in basketball. What’s more, skinny jeans can be worn with bomber jackets and t-shirts to round out your outfit.

On the other hand, If you are not so attracted to skinny jeans, giving straight jeans a try would be a good idea. When it comes to straight jeans, the diameter of your ankles, knees, and thighs, is the same.

Plus, they are looser than skinny jeans for a loose casual look.

3. Jersey

Choosing a jersey requires a strategic selection of which one to wear. You can wear one of a current player for the team you are going to see or you could rock an old school jersey with a star player from past teams.

You also want to choose whether or not to wear a jersey of the team’s star or one of a role player or personal favorite that might not get the same exposure as others on the team.

One thing is certain if you want to rock a basketball jersey, do it with style and originality. Wear something fashionable on top or beneath the jersey. A t-shirt beneath a jersey or an overshirt on top of your jersey is the perfect way to go.
