So you want something active and fun indoor and you’ve finally pinned down a lovely bowling date this weekend with your girl pals. But here’s the question: What to wear for bowling? Are there any specific bowling attire we have to follow? Relax ladies, besides the footwear (you have to wear bowling shoes), you can basically wear EVERYTHING. Yes, you heard it right. From a casual denim look to 70s retro style, you have no problem staying comfy yet stylish on the bowling alley. That said, I’ve gathered 10 outfit ideas specifically for ladies’ bowling attire, get inspired and enjoy!
1. STAY SIMPLE & CASUAL IN T-SHIRT & JEANS
Don’t overthink girls, sometimes a simple tee and denim are more than enough to look cute. After all, comfiness is the key when it comes to bowling. If you want an extra touch of retro flare, go for the vintage band tee and acid wash jeans just seal the deal.
2. STAY COMFY WITH YOUR JOGGER PANTS
Feeling laid-back during the lazy Sunday morning? Perhaps it’s time to bring your PJs out. Don’t feel guilty girl, you can totally rock a casual-chic bowling look in baggy style. Whether that’s a windbreaker set or a high street oversized hoodie, it just exudes a sense of confidence and screams “Here am I, looking great in my PJs!”
3. A SASSY SUMMER BOWLING LOOK WITH CROP TOP
Can you look like a hottie in a bowling outfit? HELL YES. For a dash of seductiveness, show a stripe of skin with a body-hugging crop top would be universally flattering for the summer days. Complete the look with statement ripped jeans, this is how you own the IT girl style.
4. GET EXPERIMENTAL WITH RETRO BOWLING STYLE
Bowling look is fun, but if you want to take this killer look to another level, GO RETRO. That said, it’s time to dust off your grandma’s color block sweater and pinafore dress for a 70s inspired bowling alley shoot with your girl pals.
That seems dramatic but trust me, you won’t regret it. Girls just wanna have fun, isn’t it?
5. BE AN EDGY BOWLING GIRL
We all have a friend that looks cool and edgy 24/7, and yes, that including the playful bowling time. For an “I’ve got a style and I OWN it” look, a faux leather biker jacket is a no-brainer. It just adds a dash of chic to the simplest ensembles.
If you really want to go all-in, team it with the grunge black tights just sure to turn heads. That said, that will be such a pity if you don’t take any Instagram shot.
6. SIMPLE BOWLING TEAM OUTFIT IDEAS
Speaking of bowling team outfit ideas, if you are sick of wearing the old school team number polo shirt, let’s loosen up a bit with the oversized hoodie dress. Shy no more girls, every season is the best season to showcase the legs! Simple yet sassy.
7. LOOK SPORTY WITH BASEBALL JACKET
Want to look sporty and youthful at the same time? No problem. As such, a statement Jersey and a baseball jacket are the must-have. After all, the bowling lane can be cold and you may want outerwear for the first few rounds.
By the way girls, if you want to fake people you’re a college freshman, well, copy this look!
8. FRESHEN UP YOUR HAIRSTYLE
Let’s admit it, we sometimes (or … always) get lazy with our hairstyles. However, when it comes to put-together bowling attire, I do urge you to pay a little bit extra effort to do an easy high bun or cute pigtail braids. Not only it’s aesthetic, but that just avoids you get poked in the eye with hair when playing bowling. Trust me, that’s not a good look.
So yes, a high ponytail that costs you a good 2 minutes is definitely worth investing in!
9. WHEN IN DOUBT, WEAR SKORTS
Feeling extra fancy and want to wear a skirt for the bowling date? Skort dress is here to play the tricks. After all, wearing a mini pleated skirt can be way too revealing when you do the backswing on the bowling alley. Alternatively, a skort dress is a perfect choice to provide you more freedom with all the bowling moves without sacrificing the appearance of a skirt. Such a dream.
10. BOWLING SOCKS AND THUMB SOCKS
Last but not least, let’s talk about socks. Some may wonder – what is the best type of socks for bowling? I will always suggest thick ankle socks. I know many girls love wearing thin invisible socks or extra low-cut socks but I don’t really recommend that. While they are perfect with sneakers, they aren’t for bowling shoes as they don’t really have enough coverage for the feet. As such, if you want to feel the best when you are bowling, go for athletic socks like this one from Amazon. Cheap and functional.
Of course, another essential will be the thumb socks. I know many of you already get one but in case you haven’t, what are you waiting for? Check this one for the reviews! You can’t be disappointed with this price.
