Jerseys are meant to fit loosely, not like a dress shirt. It should fit more like a sweatshirt, instead, so either aim for that kind of fit when trying one on or choose a size higher than you normally do if you’re ordering online.When you put it on, make sure it’s not hugging your physique.
Of course, there are exceptions to this rule, such as if you’re tucking it into slim pants or a pencil skirt. Then, you want it to fit much tighter, and you should pick your regular size.
While you can get knockoffs at a low price, they’re generally going to look like cheap knockoffs. If you want to look nice in a jersey, you should opt for licensed brands, as they tend to last longer and look like new for much longer.Knockoffs will have poor stitching or even misspelled words. Online, you might see poor quality photos.
Most jerseys are expensive, so if you can spend a bit more, the stitched jersey is a better option. It will hold up better over time. The painted-on version may start to crack and fade in the wash.Stitched, authentic jerseys can cost upwards of $200. However, licensed replicas can cost much less and still be high quality.
While it’s fun to wear a throwback every now and then, you want to support the current team! Therefore, wear a jersey of a current player, so you show you’re rooting for the home team.
If you’re older, wearing a jersey of an older player is more acceptable. After all, you’ve been a fan for longer than most! You have a right to wear what you want.
If you want to wear a shirt or jacket over your jersey, try to pick a color that’s complementary rather than matching. Complement the color that’s “louder” or stands out more. For instance, if the jersey is navy and orange, pick a complement for orange. A complementary color is one that is across from another one on the color wheel.
The color wheel is based on the three primary colors: red, yellow, and blue. Between those colors are orange, green, and purple, which are the secondary colors (colors that are blended together from primary colors). Think of the colors in a circle: red-orange-yellow-green-blue-purple-red with shades of the colors in between.
Colors across from each other on the wheel are complementary. So, for instance, red is across from green, meaning those colors are complementary.
If you need to, look up the color wheel so you can visualize it better.
Whether you opt for a fun pair of boots, high heels, or loafers, the right shoes can help take your outfit from dull to chic. Just make sure that whatever shoes you choose also pair well with your pants.
For instance, you may want a pair of skin-tight pants to go with a billowy jersey. In that case, try a pair of slim boots or strappy high heels.
Alternatively, if you want to wear loafers, try a tucking a tight-fitting jersey into dress pants.
