A polo shirt in a sporty hue is appropriate for a game of action-packed football. Bright red, fiery orange, printed whites and rich blues make for a good selection, especially when coupled with sporty detailing such as a contrast trim or a team number print.
Your trusty pair of jeans deserve a break too, and if you’re looking at a sporty-chic look, swapping your jeans with something more structured is an absolute necessity. Beige chinos or traditional khakis fit the bill perfectly and are a good contrast to a bright polo shirt.
Give your all-occasion loafers a miss and trade up for something that’s a touch more suited to a sporting event—a pair of smart sneakers. Pick a pair with suede or leather detailing, in a colour other than the usual black and brown.
While a simple black leather belt may be your go-to pick for work, take the time to pick something more detailed for a football match. A textured leather belt, such as a cross-grain one or one featuring canvas and leather makes for an ideal pick.
A formal outfit gives you plenty of accessories to pick from, from tasteful jewellery and statement ties to understated cufflinks, elegant tie bars and artful pocket squares. However, when it comes to sporty-chic outfits, you’re better off being limited to a select few choices, and we’re gunning for a sporty watch. It ties together the entire look perfectly and is definitely a mark of a man who pays attention to detail.
