How to Dress Like a Soccer Player (Girls)
Learn how to dress like a soccer player when your soul wants to shout to the world "I play soccer."
Pull up your hair into a loose ponytail. Wear a thin hairband made from pre-wrap. You can find it at any sports store next to the medical stuff.
Wear a shirt that again, is sports brands, or a shirt from a tournament you've been in.
Wear soccer shorts, with tight ones underneath (to keep your hamstrings warm).
Wear a track jacket. Most clubs and countries have their own track jackets. But its best to buy a general black one with white stripes, the epitome of a soccer warm up. Don't wear a jersey under the jacket, a tee-shirt will do just fine.
Jerseys- if you have a favorite club or country, then show the world! It is best to have a player name to specifically identify your passion for support, but not necessary.
Don't be afraid of wearing a jersey with outrageous colors, Sevilla for instance has a pink-purple home jersey. It makes you more identifiable as fan.
Compliment shorts/jeans with tops. Don't wear the same color all over. Try to contrast, but match. Green with blue, for instance, usually works well.
The shoes also are a big indicator of serious "soccerness". Despite the fact that they don't make everyday shoes for soccer, indoor soccer shoes provide a good alternative. Most indoor shoes have a match with real cleats. If you like the Total 90s, there's an indoor version, same goes with all major brands. If you don't want to wear indoor soccer shoes you could also wear slides with socks.
Don't just sport the jerseys everyone knows. However smart you are in the game of soccer, a lesser known jersey shows you mean business. If you go wear a Beckham (which is an option, I guess)jersey, it will be seen as following the crowd. Just make sure your motives are in check, if you truly like Beckham, then there's nothing wrong. Just make sure you are not ignorant in your selections.
Backpacks are optional. Most club shops have a backpack with the club's logo. Club's also usually sell sack packs if you prefer those.
Calf muscles. Strong calf muscles to show off also don't hurt. It goes along with the general stereotypes of soccer, fit players, washboard abs, and reasonably attractive. It isn't all that bad to play soccer, right?
- Most of Europe's premier talents are unheard of here in the USA, so again, be knowledgeable.
- Let your style reflect you passion.
- Websites like WorldSoccerShop.com, KitBag.com, offer a reasonable selection of jerseys at moderate prices.
- Don't over-do it.
- If you know nothing about football outside USA, its okay, you don't have to become an expert with European or South American football. Just simply wear what you enjoy and inject some personal football into it!
- Try to refrain from wearing full kits, that is, don't wear an Argentina jersey with Argentina shorts.
- Don't all of a sudden change your style to be cool, be yourself, or you'll look like a poser.
- Take pride in your dressing.
- Don't be a poser. Be knowledgeable in the current world of football.
- Remember, lesser known clubs can be bought at often cheaper prices and present a unique, interesting style.
- The more you enjoy and know football (soccer) the more it will reflect in your soccer fashions.
- Jerseys often show a sign of identity. Some clubs are associated with "cult" like followings. FC St. Pauli of Germany is associated with a liberal, punk image. So just be aware. While Ajax and Tottenham fans are known to embrace their Jewish support and become a part of club culture.
- Retro jerseys are cheaper than newer ones and give a vintage flair. A Johan Cruyff or Diego Maradona jersey will tribute respect as well as more fashionable than recent ones.
- Big player jerseys, like Beckham, Ronaldinho, are obvious to soccer fans, and casual fans alike. Show people you are smart in the world of soccer. Sport maybe a smaller club like Bristol Rovers, or teams like PSV Eindhoven, Aston Villa, Atletico Madrid, Werder Bremen. These teams are well known in Europe, but get less exposure in the States. But do your own research.
