Loves, we know I love a great juxatipositon; and are one of the things that I find most interesting about people (and fashion). We’ve been getting to know each other for a while now; you know that I love shoes, editorial shoots, and fashion that’s fun. You might have also noticed that I LOVE football. And loves, I don’t think that’s something that’s seperate from fashion. In fact, even when I’m in football mode, I care about my fashion. Fashion x Football, it’s a thing my loves.
I’ve written about this before: here and here. On my Instagam (@racheladelicia), you’ve noticed that on Fridays my OOTD is all purple (Go Purple Friday), and in the coming weeks, on Sundays I’ll be repping the Dallas Cowboys. Yes, I wear my team’s colors and their logo shirts; but because I love fashion just as much as I love football I don’t end my combination of Fashion x Football at that. Below are some of my favorite football looks, and some of my tips to look fashionable on game day.
My attitude towards combining Fashion x Football is very similar to my attitude towards graphic tees. I think football fashion goes with anything, in fact I love a team tee (or item) with “high” fashion, it’s an amazing juxatipositon. Team tees and skirts, jeans with team sweaters, paying homage to your school with the colors in any form, I love it all. And of course, there is something amazing about great fitting jeans and a tee. There’s are so many ways to rep your team and stay on point with your fashion. Really, there’s only one thing that I don’t love about the combination of fashion x football:
I’m a woman. I love fashion. I love football. I hate the putting of sequins on team tees, and other merchandise to make it “appealing” to women. And here’s the thing, I love sequins, I have nothing against them! However, I don’t think that sequins and football mix. I proudly wear my team gear: everything from tees to bags to jewelry, shorts, socks, pants, almost everything. But I love the team, and while I love sequins, I don’t need them to rep my team. Personal preference? Perhaps so, but I have to let you know as someone who loves fashion x football, I just don’t love the sequin team items. I would much rather Rock my team tee with a pencil skirt! What about you??
I’ve tagged some of my fave “sports” gear and the classic pieces I love to pair them with!
Happy Friday and football! XO RA
