If you are anything like me, you are always stressing about how to look chic, but appropriate in every situation. I believe that there is a time and place for everything–and as much as it pains me to say–going to a hockey game in a pair of stilettos is not appropriate. Dressing for sporting events is a time that you need to be a little more casual, but casual never means that you aren’t cute!

Erin Andrews recently had a great article in Cosmopolitan about “leaving the club shoes at home” when attending a sporting event. She’s totally right. Her shoe of choice is a Vans slip-on. If you had asked me last year if I had agreed, I would have 100% said no. My style has done a complete 180 degree flip, though, and I wear Vans whenever it is appropriate (or inappropriate). Pairing a slip on sneaker with a sundress and leather jacket or some boyfriend jeans is the perfect attire. I like to mix some stylish pieces with something so opposite because you look put together, but like you didn’t even try. This is one example of dressing chic and still fitting the dress code.

Rocking a tee shirt with your fave team’s logo on it is sometimes thought of as something that you can’t look stylish in. Stop thinking that immediately. First of all, most teams have neutral color shirts, no matter the team’s colors. If you are like me, you don’t wear a lot of color, so this is perfect. My trick is to always make sure I have a ‘third piece’; whether it’s a scarf or a jacket, you will always look more put together. My go-to for hockey is a leather jacket for so many different reasons, and if you followed along with me and my Press Level Fashion looks last year, you would see how it was my #1 choice. I’ve put together a cute look below to show you how to dress up a simple tee shirt.

Just remember: you can still show off your team spirit and look stylish. Don’t try too hard, that’s key.

Sports and fashion are Allison's true passions. She grew up in the household of a professional athlete, and a family blessed with true athletic talent. She, on the other hand, must have been absent on the day that sport skills were passed out! Although, she does possess a zeal that most girls do not have for sports of all kinds, hockey has consumed her life in the most unexplainable way. Sports are such an integral part of who she is, and she is on journey of becoming a part of a professional sports organization. Growing up minutes from the Las Vegas Strip didn't leave Allison with many options for being a sports fan.Spending the majority of her summers on the East Coast, Allison became a fan of all things Boston, and her heart will always have a special place for the city (especially the Bruins). Allison currently is an employee of the Arizona Coyotes and falls more in love with the game each and every day.
