Help! My Boyfriend Plays Professional Baseball and I Don't Know What to Wear!!

by Madeline
(CA)

I need some affordable fashionable casual night and day outfits to wear at his baseball games. I am 23, 5'2", hourglass shape figure and a heart shaped face.

My boyfriend plays minor league baseball for a living. Unfortunately doesn't make that much money. I used to be an event planner before I met him. I was a big party girl and had a wardrobe to match. Unfortunately, due to his lifestyle I had to quit my job.

I usually have to work 3 random jobs just to stay even. Since my life has changed I feel like I have lost my style.

Please help me the best you can.



Madeline,

creds to you for being such a great girlfriend :) I know how difficult it can be to stay stylish with your lifestyle, however there are several ways to look fashionable without having a lump sum of money.

If you already have some of the wardrobe essentials you'll be able to create multiple outfits without constantly having to buy new clothes.

First of all when it comes to dressing for a baseball game event, remember to avoid wearing anything fancy because you'll be over-dressed compared to the rest. So drop the sleek trousers, stilettos (wedges a refine), lots of blingy jewelry, etc. Well, unless you're Victoria Beckham of course.

What to Wear to a Baseball Game


Your should aim for a casual-chic look consisting of jeans, comfortable shoes (simple, casual wedge shoes if don't want sacrifice your girly side) and a simple top/tank/sweater. You could even wear your home team's t-shirt, but if you're not comfortable looking like a living billboard, opt for plain tees and tops.




According to your description you're a petite and have an hourglass body shape. An hourglass shape is considered ideal and attractive. You might want to focus on emphasizing your beautiful curves. For your petite frame I suggest you streamline your outfit with dark colors so that you'll look taller.

Let me get into further details:

Bottom

Definitely jeans. Be it dark wash, light wash, black jeans, shredded, distressed, acid wash. As long as they look casual. They look appropriate for this type of event.

Denim and black cotton leggings would also work but you need to pair them with a tunic shirt or a long top (I would personally wear it with an oversized sweatshirt for this type of event). Make sure it covers 2/3 of your butt when bending forward.

Top

A really good look would be a combo of skinny jeans and a loose fitted top, tank or sweat. Go for a low V or U-neck. It looks trendy yet casual. Fitted tees complement loose-fitted jeans (you should definitely try boyfriend jeans). Loose-fitted jeans are trendy but make sure they're slightly fitted around the hip-butt area to keep your style looking feminine.

For the evenings, wrap a skinny or wide belt around the waist to accentuate your waist.

Keep yourself warm with a hoodie, drapey or a boyfriend cardigan.

Shoes

Sneakers are good to wear for your boyfriend's baseball games. Now I'm not talking about Nike Shox , but a slimmer style such as Keds (plimsoll/canvas shoes) or low-cut Converse sneakers with a thinner sole to complement your petite frame.

If you're not a sneaker-girl, flat ballerinas or flat ankle boots will do. Just make sure they're simple looking.

Accessories


... And add whatever accessories you like! A little bit of your personality makes your outfit a lot more exciting.

Flashy chain and glitzy jewelry would look too fancy at baseball games, so you might want to stick to leather and bead bracelets. They're cheaper too.

Keep your hands free with a small cross body bag, it's much more convenient than oversized leather handbags.

Go comfy because games are long :)

Hope this helps.

Have fun - baseball games are awesome!

Hi. My boyfriend plays minor league ball and I know NOTHING about baseball even though I am in Philly where we won the world series a couple of years ago and have always made the playoffs despite knowing cole hamels and jason werth are hot lol. It's not his profession though he is an area sales amager for a medical device company but i wanna be excited for him (he is ecstatttic about his first season meetg this week) but dont know how. I have a toddler so I know she will enjoy being out at games but i honestly would rather spend my sundays relaxing at home or coffe/nails/spa etc. I hope I will be able to get excited when his season starts but have a beach home and honestly know i'd rather be on the sand then at a ballpark but relationships r give n take so i gotta bit the bullet. Anyone else in same position???

Fantastic!

I was about to ask a question here, regarding more or less the same topic of casual dressing. Funnily enough, I am also 5"2 and of an hourglass shape, and Madeline's question here saved me from having to ask a question also. Thanks to the two of you.
