Choosing the Right Apparel for Your Needs

Volunteer | Choosing the Right ApparelIf you have ever been in charge of a big event then you know how hard it can be to make a decision that will please everyone. Especially when it comes to choosing the right apparel, everyone has a different style that they prefer. We can give you a few pointers to help you out the next time you have to pick out the gear for an event!

Choosing the Right Apparel:

The good news is that there really isn’t a wrong choice here. Unless you pick out a heavy sweatshirt for something outside in the middle of summer. When choosing apparel for events like fun runs or even family reunions it is best to stick with the basics. We recommend this for a couple reasons.

  • They work great for both men and women.
  • They help keep your costs down.

When choosing apparel for your event think about where your event is and the time of year. If you are doing an indoor event then you would be fine with a basic t-shirts. However if you are doing an outside event in the fall you may want to do a long sleeve shirt or a hoodie. Doing an outdoor event in the summer? You may want to consider doing tank tops instead of a basic cotton tee.

Another thing you may want to think about is the age group that you will be catering to. If they are an older group you may want to steer away from low cut or V-necks. If you crowd is younger then that style would be a great fit.

We know that choosing apparel for an event can seem like a daunting task, but we hope this helps. If you still are not sure about which direction to take it in let us know. We are more than happy to help you find the perfect piece for your event!
