“There’s No Crying in Baseball!”

Baseball season technically began a few weeks ago, but for most people, it doesn’t officially begin until Summer.  It’s one thing to watch from home but going to a game is a whole different experience. Are you going to your first game this summer and don’t know what to wear? Fear not, we’ve got your guide to a fashionable day of America’s pastime.

One of the biggest considerations when picking an outfit is the weather, since most likely you’ll be outside and many stadium seats are uncovered. For a hot day, a pair of jean shorts with one of our cute tops with tanks would be perfect. If you’re going for a more formal look, our dresses are ideal. Plus, they come in several color choices so you can match it to the team of your choice!

If it’s going to be on the chillier side but not enough to warrant a sweater, make sure you bring a scarf which can be worn in a multitude of ways to keep you stylish yet comfortable. If it is cool enough for a sweater, consider one of our cute cardigans.

Not wearing a cap to a baseball game is like having ice cream without sprinkles. If you don’t have or want the cap of a specific team we recommend one of our hats. Keep the sun out of your eyes while still looking fresh.

Chicastic is takin’ you out to the ball game!
