If you've been paying attention to the world of sports lately, you'll know it's a huge time for cheering on your favorite team! But if you're invited to games, parties or bars to watch the game, what's a girl to wear? I wanted to share some of my own tips from Makeoverly. At Renaissance Girl, I'm all for evolving, and perfecting sporty fashion is no exception. 

Let’s start from the bottom up; when you’re on your feet at a game, you need to be comfortable! A great way to ensure total comfort is by investing in a cute pair of sneakers. If you haven’t noticed, sportswear is having a serious moment in fashion right now, and it’s easier than ever to find trendy sneakers. New Balance, Converse All Stars and Keds are just a few comfy options with many cute styles.

Vouch for some jeans. Since it’s fall, distressed denim is stylish, comfortable and casual. You can find cute jeans at almost any women’s retailer this time of year, so it won’t be hard to find the perfect pair in your price range. A big part of sportswear is comfort, so make sure you’re staying warm in the cold this season.

I think that jerseys and t-shirts are the exciting part of game attire. As a Chicago girl and sports fanatic, I have so much fun picking out jerseys for my favorite teams. And if you don’t want to spend too much money for a sports jersey, a simple t-shirt in your favorite team’s color will be just fine. Word to the wise: Victoria’s Secret PINK has a bunch of great casual sportswear shirts for teams across the country, so you’re guaranteed to find a shirt that you’ll love.

Stick with a few basic accessories to play up your look. Try to keep your outfit simple with understated accessories while still being yourself. Simple earring studs, bangles or a bauble necklace is plenty to jazz up your ensemble. If you’re outside, you can use the weather to your advantage. Aside from jewelry, if you’re expecting warm weather, you can use your upcoming game as an excuse to invest in a cute baseball cap, chic sunglasses or a headband to keep your hair in place. Game on!
