It’s t-minus two days until Super Bowl XLIX! Whether you’re rooting for the New England Patriots or the Seattle Seahawks—or you’re just counting down until Katy Perry takes the stage at halftime—you’re definitely going to want to don something sporty on game day. Unless you’re a true football fan, skip the jersey—even if it’s bedazzled. Not only will you look like the world’s biggest poser, but you’ll blend in with crowd, which is never, ever a good thing.
To help you stand out from the gaggle of girls in ugly mesh, we’ve put together fashionable outfits using both teams’ colors, so you can represent your favorite city in style.
IF YOU’RE CHEERING ON THE PATRIOTS
[Official team colors: nautical blue, red, new century silver, and white]
Unless the game is a real nail-biter, chances are, you’ll be sitting for hours so it’s best to wear something comfortable. Plus, I think we can all agree that nothing is worse than sucking in your stomach while eating chicken wings. Choose a top that’s loose and flowy like this cashmere sweater.
Keep your look cool and casual with a pair of white boyfriend jeans. Don’t wear anything too tight—it’s a football game, not a nightclub.
To keep your outfit looking festive without veering into Fourth of July territory, add a pop of red with a bright statement necklace.
Simple studs, like these braided bows, add a girly twist (and a hint of silver) without detracting from your other accessories.
IF YOU’RE CHEERING ON THE SEAHAWKS:
[Official team colors: college navy, action green, and wolf grey]
Be prepared for any room temperature with a cozy grey cardigan made from warm merino wool. Should you become too warm from jumping up and down (or too many pitchers of beer) simply tie it around your waist.
On crowded game days, spills are to be expected. Skip the flimsy cami that turns translucent with a few drops of water and wear a super-soft cashmere tank instead.
Green jeans may seem tough to pull off, but when paired with other neutral colors (like grey and navy), they look ever-so-chic. To keep your outfit from looking too costume-y, keep accessories to a minimum.
Save your plastic beads for Spring Break at Señor Frogs and slip on a couple bracelets in your team’s colors.
Skip the bulky necklace and rock a oversized cocktail ring. It’s the perfect way to dress up even the most casual of outfits.
