The Big Game Holiday Gifts:

When watching your team play, sportswear essentials for men are the way to go. When selecting your game-day sportswear, Stylelujo recommends a few essential items to consider.

 In warmer weather states, shorts are a great option that keeps you cool while still looking stylish on gameday. Also, look for quick-dry technology and resilient sporty fabrics.

 T-shirts are the best go-to for game day style if you want to show off your team spirit and big muscles. Many sports enthusiasts like to represent themselves by wearing graphic tees with bold team logos or sporty styles with modified athletic details such as contrast stitching, drawstring closures, and soft-to-the-touch hoodies. My best recommendation is to take time and care in how you dress. It is a form of self-respect and respect for others. 

There are many options when choosing the hottest trends in men’s sportswear. But what are the top trends you should be wearing this season? Athleisure styles, bomber jackets, joggers, hoodies, and sneakers are must-haves for any guy’s wardrobe. Sporty tops, vibrant colors, and innovative fabrics are a few trends this season.

Regarding your favorite sports team (s), Gameday is a time to use your style to show your support for your favorite players. Today, gameday fashion has come a long way- far beyond wearing your favorite team’s jersey. A new way to look at it is to coordinate a color scheme that aligns with the team you’re representing, with stylish options designed for comfort and functional performance.

To be clear, men’s sportswear has evolved over the years, with numerous product offerings. Whether you are actively participating in playing the sport or being a passionate spectator, there are great items to keep you looking stylish.

You can dress by making a statement with bold colors and patterns or take the sidelines approach and choose functional apparel. No matter the case, there are plenty of options below to help you find the perfect fit. 

Our teams of fashion editors at StyleLujo.com present the hottest trends in men’s sportswear and the tips you need to get the best look for you. 

STYLE LUJO STYLE TIP– Stay grounded with fit, balance and proportion. When wearing bold colors on the top, be mindful to create balance by adding a hint of bold color at the bottom. You aim to look great and not like a class clown. When in doubt, stick to neutrals. 

Sporty Casual is the best term for how you want to develop your look. Look for apparel designed for athletic use, such as training or physical activity. Sporty Casual dress can be worn as casual clothing- not limited to playing sports. I recommend buying clothing sportswear for men that are cut more generously for a more relaxed look.
