Football season is here, which means wings, cheap beer and a lot of screaming at the TV -- at least for those of us that are Skins fans. Even if you're not a die-hard fan, you know you'll be invited to game day watch parties, or maybe even a tailgate and tickets to the stadium. So the big question is, what should you wear?
My friends are pretty loyal Redskins fans so this new kind of wardrobe planning has come up a lot recently for me. Although I’d say I’ve gotten pretty good at it, it certainly took a while to master the delicate balance of the cute, but sporty, and yet stylish look. So I’ve come up with three great options in case you are also struggling. Of course, these are all Redskins-inspired, but the looks can be swapped out from team to team -- even college!
The ultimate sporty-girl fan
A football jersey, jeans, and hair up is all you need here. Show those guys you mean business. But then I paired this with wedges and “Redskins” gold hoop earrings for a small girly flare.
Just wants to be comfortable
A soft redskins racerback tank with its cheerleader sexy vibe gets the job done. Of course you can add a burgundy zip-up if it gets a bit chilly, or you just need to cover up. On bottom, throw on a cute pair of work out leggings and stylish kicks -- Converse, Vans or Adidas will all look cute with this ensemble.
Full on girly-girl
Lastly, this is for the girl that really isn’t collecting team t-shirts and really just wants to look cute while pretending to be into the game. Try a silk or cotton blouse in one of the team colors; I’ve chosen burgundy in this case. It can be worn with a comfy jean skirt or black pants. To give it that football vibe, I’ve accessorized with some pretty funny additions such as redskins earrings (they make these for all the NFL teams) and a pair of flats that match. Now, someone once gave me burgundy and gold flats so these are perfect, but let’s be real most of us don’t have those in the back of the closet, so really any flats will do.
If you are going to the game it’s important to remember they only allow tiny purses. Anything bigger than a wallet basically needs to be clear! I recommend one of these clear, hip, plastic, cross body bags. They come in so many colors you are sure to find one in the vein of team spirit. This one is by a company called Capri Designs. I like it because it’s a burgundy-trimmed bag with a little gold card holder. I couldn’t be more redskins ready!
Happy football watching babes!
