As the Twins season is just kicking into high gear, why not kick your game day style into high gear too! When heading to Target Field, you don't have to settle for the same tired t-shirt and jeans ensemble that seems to blend into the sea of spectators. Though you’re going to watch baseball pros do what they do best, in a rowdy, sun-soaked, and sometimes sweaty game, it doesn't mean you can't dress like a pro and shine like one too✨. At Fan Girl we believe it is much more fun to embrace the opportunity to showcase your individuality and style, maybe even turning some heads as you step into the ballpark! 😆 ⚾️


While fashion trends are always changing, there is one timeless trend that always manages to make a comeback: vintage! Whether you’ve got gear inspired by the 60s or the 90s, step up to the plate looking stylish and chic. It doesn’t matter if you're watching the Twins from behind right field or from your favorite bar, you can elevate your well-loved vintage pieces with these tips and ideas on how to style vintage Twins apparel!


✨ How To: Styling Vintage Twin Apparel ✨

Mix Vintage with Modern:

Don't be afraid to mix vintage Twins apparel with modern trends to create a balanced outfit. Old-fashioned jerseys, retro tees and crewnecks, and broken-in baseball hats bring a wave of nostalgia to a look, but when looking to elevate your look, try pairing your favorite classics with modern trends. Whether you are going for a vintage look or a modern look using vintage pieces, there are endless styles to choose from. 

⭐️ Take a swing at these styles:

  • Cheetah print pants and a vintage tee

  • Oversized hoodie paired with biker shorts

  • Mini dress with an old school baseball hat

  • A vintage tee under overalls

  • Retro jacket paired with a dress, short onesie, or tank and shorts

  • Vintage baseball jersey and a mini skirt

  • Track pants with a vintage tee or crewneck

  • Oversized tee and a maxi skirt

Footwear - Fielder's Choice

There are tons of footwear options that will help pull your vintage game day look together. From lace ups to slip ons, picking a shoe that both compliments your outfit and is comfortable, is essential to cheering on the Twins in good fashion!

  • Sneakers are a simple and comfy choice. Add a sporty-chic touch to your outfit, whether it's with biker shorts or a dress. Pair your vintage apparel with classic white sneakers for a timeless look, or opt for colorful kicks. 

    • ⚡️ Be a Twins Pro Fan: display extra team spirit with red or blue sneakers 

  • Boots for cooler summer days and adding a touch of edge. Whether you opt for cowboy boots and a mini skirt or platform ankle boots with shorts, they can add a stylish twist to your outfit and help you stand out from the crowd, or above it.

  • Sandals because it is summer after all. When the sun is shining and the weather is warm, slip into a pair of sandals to complete your vintage Twins ensemble. Platform flip-flops, chunky slip-ons, and comfy espadrilles pair well with any look and keep you feeling cool, literally.

  • Flats are back whether you love ‘em or hate ‘em! From ballet flats to loafers and mules, you can’t go wrong by pairing these slightly elegant shoes to your outfit, while keeping comfortable all day long. 

Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize:

Accessories give you the chance to showcase a little personality and are the best way to really pull a look together, adding that cherry on top. They’re also versatile, meaning you can rewear your favorite vintage piece and pair with different accessories for every game this season. With so many choices, theres no chance of a swing and a miss here. 

⭐️ Take a swing at these styles:

  • Statement earrings

  • Retro or classic sunglasses

  • Headbands and hair bows

  • Stackable bracelets and bangles

  • Chunky belt with a maxi skirt or denim

  • Layered necklaces

  • Colorful or patterned mini bag

  • Classic baseball hat

Layering Up:

Layering is key to adding depth, dimension, and some interest to your vintage-inspired outfit. Also perfect for Minnesota's ever changing weather, layers provide practicality for iffy weather.

  • Start with a Base: Begin with a simple base layer, like a fitted tank or t-shirt and add dimension with a vintage jacket or off-the-shoulder crew neck.

  • Layering: Experiment with layering a denim jacket or retro Twins jacket over your apparel to add some shape to your look. On cooler days, you can try an oversized white t-shirt underneath a crew neck or tee, that peeks out of the bottom, adding some definition.

  • Mixing textures: A mix of different textures and fabrics creates visual depth in your look. Try pairing a chunky knit sweater with classic Twins tee.

  • Play with Proportions: For balance and cohesion pair oversized tees and crewnecks with slim-fitting bottoms or try a baby tee and baggy jeans.

Confidence is Key:

Above all, wearing your vintage Twins apparel with confidence is the best look! Looking your very best in vintage clothing is all about feeling your very best in it too. Own your unique style and embrace the nostalgia of bygone eras with open arms. So strut your stuff into Target Field and let your love for the Minnesota Twins shine through in every outfit you wear. ⚾️✨😆
