SheFinds Examines the Evolution of Girly Fanwear

As a member of the fashion loving community, I am always maxing out my style mojo putting my best manicured foot forward in every aspect of my life and daily routine. I have somehow managed to successfully and stylishly dress each of my many personas — Work Me, Gym Me, Casual Me, Hot Date Me, etc. Yet, despite my great efforts, there is still one part of me that is sadly neglected: the Sports Fan.

image I am sure other lady sports enthusiasts will attest that when it comes to fashionable game-attending attire, the pickings are quite slim. (Try leaving your house in a potato sack-like “medium” sized jersey that is down to your knees and see how attractive you feel). For a while, “girl fan attire” just meant taking any of the men’s apparel items — same sizes, styles and everything — and manufacturing them in a stock, pale bubblegum pink. That was about as much as the boys were willing to concede to us…until now.

It seems like they've finally realized that we, too, are dedicated fans and deserve better. We actually go to games for fun and not because our boyfriends have dragged us along. We turn on SportsCenter every night instead of watching E! News and we can banter with the best of them about who is a better Cy Young candidate and which teams will clinch a spot in this year's Fall Classic (um, the Yankees). Given all this, we deserve our own apparel that actually fits and, Babe Ruth forbid, looks cute.

In all fairness, some strides have been taken recently as Alyssa Milano debuted her own celeb fashion line of girly baseball fanwear back in April and the NFL in collaboration with Reebok has now jumped on board with a line of clothing designed just for women, as seen in this commercial:

 

 

So in honor of Monday Night Football and another great postseason to look forward to in the MLB, here are some of the best girly fanwear items we could find. And don't worry, you can still get the brightest pink Tom Brady jersey your heart desires. Order soon, though, because they are flying off of the virtual shelves. Click on any item to purchase:
