What not to wear: BASEBALL

Posted: June 5, 2010 by NattieLiz in Dating, MLB, What not to wear

So you have batted your lashes, played the game, and snagged yourself a new hottie. I mean it is to be expected, it’s the summer time. Those summer flings are only meant to last until September, then its back to reality! But in the mean time, you and your new boy have to figure out ways to pass the long summer together:

ENTER: The inevitable, Baseball game date.

Yup, you either loath it or you love it. I’ve heard some girls describe it as “the most boring game ever” (that’s cause you probably don’t get it, but that’s not the point right now) and some girls, like ourselves, know there is nothing better than a hot dog, an ice-cold beer, baseball cap, and some good old fashion heckling of outfielders (depending on your seat location, of course).

Here is a quick guide to get the most out of this experience:

1. Opt for a night game. Listen, its summer all over the US…so depending on where you are it’s either super hot, super humid, or god forbid: BOTH. Think about it like sitting in the sauna with make up on, then going on a date with out a shower… it’s gross. don’t do it. Night games all the way!

2. It’s not a club, So please don’t wear heels. (unless you want to get made fun of, then by all means…). Now don’t go crying that you can’t possibly look cute cause you can’t dress to the 9’s. This is your chance to be low key, show another side, prove that you can be fun and laid back, don’t blow it because you love your new Steve Madden summer wedges, they live to be worn another day.

3. Don’t go over board. Just because it’s the only shirt you own that is Dodger Blue, doesn’t mean you have to wear it. No one is expecting you to come dressed like the team mascot either. Don’t go out and buy a brand new Braves hat, shirt, socks, underwear with matching bra…it’s too much. Not to mention you end up looking like the 7-year-old girl whose dad brought her to the game.

4. Comfy and classy. This should be the rule to live by. You are going to be doing a lot of walking, a lot of eating on the fly, getting up and down in your seat, walking up and down stadium stairs, and if you’re any fun, a fair amount of drinking. So wear shoes that make sense, shorts or jeans ( NOT WHITE!!), a cute (aka not slutty) top, and pretend to forget your hoodie so you can wear his 🙂

Follow these 4 rules and you are golden! you and HottieMcBaseball are going to have a great time because you won’t be worried about the ketchup that he just spilled on your new jeans. You were smarter than that!
