Long title for a simple concept. But here's an idea! Take your sports tees that have some sort of value, (vintage, kitsch, sentimental) and make them wearable outside of "game day" by pairing them with chic separates.
What you see here is a vintage Yankees tee paired with a silk pant, navy blazer and cardigan.
Start here: your fave sports tee that has SOME design element to it. In this case graphic logo.
Wear with an elevated pant. NOT your jeans, not your shorts! Find a lovely trouser to wear it with. I went with a silk pant in the same color family with beautiful pleating and movement.
Hook it up with a sloppy tuck. We want to see the trouser for what it is, but not take the look too seriously.
And now to add some shape and even more polish... grab your trusty blazer.
Final move - throw your coat over it. I'm bringing back the sporty theme here with a sporty but fancy version of a cardigan.
And that's it! My thinking is you should be able to wear what you want to wear, both casual or fancy by mixing it with the appropriate balancing pieces. What say you? Is this something you would try?
