Baseball and Fashion?

6 Apr

Baseball is back!  The next seven (hopefully eight) months of my life will now be devoted to following brawny men in their twenties to forties wearing tight pants and hitting balls.  And I LOVE IT.

What I don’t love, however, are the people that try to make baseball fashionable/cute/sexy.  It doesn’t work.  There is no way to successfully make baseball clothes look sexy without looking like you’ve shown up after a very long night at a dance club.   Or looking like you would prefer to be there instead.  Pink, with or without bedazzling, is not a baseball color.  EVER.  And please, if you are going to a game but you don’t care about baseball, DO NOT use it as an opportunity to wear your tightest and shortest outfit.  It’s great that you’re there, but I’m not there to see you and your assets, I’m there to watch the game.

Just saying.

A few years ago actress Alyssa Milano created a clothing line, Touch, for feminine sportswear.  I appreciated the thought, creating baseball clothes for women in women’s sizes.  But honestly, who wants to wear this?

The plain t-shirts work, like this one, because there is no added “style”:

Might as well just get a kid’s shirt though- I bet it will last longer.

Final request: please go to a game this summer and have a blast.  Drink lots of beer, cheer for the best team, and avoid anything with the “designer” name Alyssa Milano.
