When it comes to dressing up during the Australian summer of cricket, there are those who sometimes like to play it a little, should we say... on the conservative side. A touch of yellow on the t-shirt or a bit of yellow zinc on the face to show their support for the Aussie team. Even a bright yellow hat that might also act as a protector from the sun. 

Then there are those who head straight for the shiny gates of fashion chaos. Think men in their wives wedding dresses spray painted yellow, giant cartoon characters, people even dressing up as yellow farm animals.

No limits are placed on people when it come to creativity and nor should there be. This is after all cricket, one of the only sports in the world where fancy dress is almost as important as what's happening on the field. 

The VB One Day International Series openly encourages cricket fans to support their teams by dressing up in colour, there's even social media hashtags that have been created #GoGold + #GoBlue.

#GoGold is that hashtag you use to show you've dressed up in your finest shades of gold or yellow to support the Aussie team, and #GoBlue is the hashtag you can use to dress up in blue to support the Indian team. Pretty straightforward stuff. 

Whatever colour or side you choose, one thing is for certain! There is going to be plenty of colour during the VB One Day International Series and if you're scrambling for some last minute ideas, we've popped together a list of some bold fashion choices. Enjoy!
