How to Style Your Basketball Jersey

There’s no better feeling than getting a new sports jersey. If you’re a basketball fan, you’ll surely agree with us that a jersey is a great choice of clothing not just for games, but for everyday wear.

What’s Your Jersey of Choice?

The first step in styling a basketball jersey is, naturally, picking your jersey of choice.

There are many different types available, such as replicas and authentics. It's essential to keep your type of jersey in mind when styling it.

If you're looking for a classic look, a replica jersey is a great option, as it features the team's colours and logo, just like the ones the players wear on the court. 

If you're looking for something more unique, a throwback jersey may be the way to go. These jersey’s typically feature the team's old colours, logos and designs from years past.

Player jerseys are a great option if you want to show support for a specific player, featuring their name and number on the back.

Consider Your Style

Once you've chosen your jersey, it's time to consider your style. Basketball jerseys are great as they can complement a variety of different styles.

For a more casual look, you can wear your jersey over a t-shirt and pair it with jeans and sneakers.

In the cooler months, swap the t-shirt for a long-sleeved shirt or hoodie. Just make sure the colour of your undershirt complements those of your jersey. 

White is a safe bet, but don’t be afraid to mix things up! This option is great for everyday wear, whether you’re heading out to pick up some groceries or watching the game with friends.

If you’re heading out to a bar or party, and would like to dress up your jersey a bit, you can swap out the jeans or shorts for a pair of chinos.

A Jersey is Just the Beginning!

When styling a basketball jersey, it’s important to remember that while your jersey may be the most important part of your outfit, it is only the beginning.

To complete your outfit, consider what accessories, such as hats, jackets or sunglasses will complement your jersey.

It’s a good idea to set some time aside to try out different combinations to see what you like the look of and feel comfortable in.
