Football shirts have never been more in demand than today. Mainstream fashion has accepted the football jersey as one of its own, a way to show a bit of personality and look good while doing it. If you’re wondering how to wear a soccer jersey, you’ve come to the right place.
How to wear a soccer jersey
Don’t wear football shorts
It is the rule number one. If you plan to wear your shirt around town, don’t wear football shorts with it. You’ll look like you’re wearing a full kit, regardless of brand. If you want to wear shorts, try to find a pair of board shorts or joggers. Really anything that isn’t specifically football shorts and you’ll be fine.

Get your jersey
The reality is that jerseys can be expensive, but they don’t have to be. Always look for discounts and sales. Websites like SOCCER.COM are a great starting point for newer gear, but if you’re looking for more retro gear, classicsoccershirts.co.uk also has a great selection. For casual use, replica jerseys get the job done and cost almost half the price while being more comfortable than their genuine counterparts.

As we have established, any jersey can be worn, but it must be paired correctly. Bright colors tend to go well with more subdued accents, so if you’re planning on wearing a yellow jersey, black or gray might be best. Black and white jerseys tend to be easier to pair with accents (trousers, shoes, etc.), but other colors like blue, red, and pink can add a pop of color to the fit.

When it comes to color, the main rule would be to try your best not to wear pants and jerseys of the same color. There are a few exceptions like wearing a white jersey with white pants and a dark jacket, but a good rule of thumb is to keep it simple and use black, white, or gray as accent colors.
Although the jersey is usually the main piece of your outfit, accents will help take your outfit to the next level. Add light jewelry like a statement necklace or earrings to look good, especially when the swimsuit it’s paired with is a little simpler. Jeans can look great in different colors like black, white, or even blue, but again, it’s important to pair them well. When in doubt, go for black or white.

Shoes are another important feature. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, black and white shoes often do the trick, and bonus points to include Adidas Sambas or any classic Puma flat. But with a cleaner, simpler fit, maybe consider a pop of color for the shoes. However, try to steer clear of explicit soccer cleats. It will make you look like a 12 year old.
Wearing a football jersey is supposed to be fun. Don’t worry about which team it is or which player at the back. If you like the jersey, wear it. There are better ways to combine different colors, but whatever, have fun, keep it clean and relax.
