How To Dress Up Sports Tees

Can you believe it’s already September?! I know I can’t. School has started, pumpkin-spiced everything is hitting the stores, the Royals are trying to keep their streak alive, college football is starting and the NFL Preseason is coming to an end. If you’re like me and are a big sports fan --- but also want to look well-put-together -- here are some tips on how to dress up sports tees!

You can’t really talk about fall sports in Kansas City without talking about our World Series Champion Royals! Want to dress up your favorite Royal’s t-shirt? Since this particular Royals tee has the metallic grey lettering, I paired it with these grey skinny corduroys from Old Navy. With cool nights on the horizon, an always-trendy chambray shirt is a great choice for a layering piece to keep those arms warm. Chambray shirts look great by themselves and over other shirts, whether you button them up a bit or leave them open!

For all you K-State fans, here are two simple outfit options to try! The first one uses a purple K-State t-shirt that I styled with a basic grey cardigan from Banana Republic and skinny jeans from New York & Company. The grey in the cardigan goes perfectly with the Power Cat logo on the tee and the skinnies are a very chic color and style, making them great for dressing up an outfit! Did you notice the sunglasses? I have these purple and brown sunglasses on sale for just $12!

Want to be a little more comfy but look on-trend? This second outfit utilizes this trendy short-sleeved K-State hoodie that would look great over a bralette or lace-front tank. The jeans are a fitted flare “A Pocket” jean from 7 For All Mankind. They are fitted through the thighs then widen a bit past the knee, giving them a very flattering, comfortable fit - perfect for going to a game!

I didn’t leave you Jayhawk fans out! The first outfit I put together for you uses this super soft grey KU Jayhawk tee with a circular graphic on the front. To go along with the white background of the graphic, I went with these white boyfriend jeans from Eddie Bauer. Boyfriend jeans are meant to have a casual look, but I think the white color dresses them up a little. A nice white slip-on or sneaker would look perfect with this outfit! I have two pair of the silver aviator sunglasses available for just $12/each. They have a dark navy lens that has a slight ombre to them making them even more on-trend!


The last sports tee I dressed up is this dark navy KU tee. I think this is my favorite outfit in this post. The dark red on the jayhawk matches these dark red skinny pants from Mossimo perfectly. Since we are talking fall sports, I thought it would be smart (and stylish!) to add a denim jacket to keep those arms warm. I added the aviators to this outfit, as well! An on-trend pair of slip-ons or even a pair of nude studded flats would complete this trendy KU outfit.
