FASHION POLICE: SPORTS FAN EDITION
There is nothing worse than having to climb the stadium stairs in a pair of stilettos. Or leaving your Birkin bag below your seat only to find it covered in beer and
chewed up gum at the end of the game. Or to be the victim of a certain (and explicit) chant because you chose not to support the home team.
To avoid a major violation the next time you attend a sporting event, take a look at A Glam Slam’s Top 10 Fashion Faux Pas:
- Wearing the jersey of a team from a different sport, or a team who is not playing in the game you are attending. Unless your wardrobe consists only of team jerseys (which would bring up a whole different set of problems), stick to the teams in the game.
- Wearing your own name on the back of your jersey if you are older than the age of 10. You might have dreamed of becoming a professional athlete but let’s face it, it’s time to move on.
- While it’s great to show pride in your team through your attire, there’s no need to go overboard. This is dedicated to the women who feel it’s necessary to wear a team logo t-shirt and jacket. And hat. And jeans. And earrings…
- Head-to-toe pale pink fan gear (obviously).
- Guys in suits; unless you are coming straight from the office, then you’re off the hook.
- Face paint. Enough said.
- Spelling out your team name or favorite player on your t-shirt with a bunch of pals. After a few beers, it never turns out the way you planned.
- Wearing outdated fan gear.Newsflash: Brett Favre no longer plays for the Green Bay Packers. However, throwback jerseys are fully acceptable.
- How about a lack of fashion? If it is the dead of winter and you have a beer belly yet still feel the need to go shirtless, that’s a problem. If you’re a JETS season ticket holder and you sit in section 317, that means you. Wink, wink.
- And the worst offense of them all: women who are dressed like they are heading to the club instead of a sporting event. If you are trying to draw attention to yourself, this is not the place to do so. You can trust Glam Gal that just this once, the guys are focused on the game, not on you.
So sports fans, take this advice or you might end up here: SPIKE’s list of the teams with the most annoying fans.
