On Sunday, February 2, the Denver Broncos will face off against the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII. That’s 48 for all of you who don’t follow the NFL or aren’t caught up on your Roman numerals.
If you were too frugal to dish out the $500 to $6,000 tickets, then chances are you’ll be watching the game from the comfort of your home in front of a big screen TV and with a bevy of rowdy friends at a Super Bowl party. And although we hope your party is chock full of chicken wings, spirits and the like, nothing completes a party like a well-dressed fan. Here are six pieces you should wear to a Super Bowl party to rep your team, especially if you’re superstitious.
Wake Up In Style: The Super Bowl PJ
Get in the Super Bowl mindset as soon as you wake up by wearing sporty pajamas. This way you will be ready to put on your team colors as soon as the sun rises.
It will also let your friends know just how devoted you are to football and style. Get this set at Forever 21 for only $16.80.
If you’re going to a casual party, feel free to keep these on for the game to stay comfortable.
Walk the Walk: In Chic Footwear
So you want to dress the part, but you don’t want to wear chunky sneakers that make you look like one of the guys.
Try your hands on more stylish footwear alternatives that easily match your NFL attire while also providing some chic edge. These H&M wedge-heel sneakers have a mesh detail for style and a rubber sole for comfort. Find them for only $39.95 and save 25% off your highest priced item.
Zone Coverage: Get Covered in Colors
So you don’t have any gear that actually shows off team names or players but you still want to join in on the fun? No worries. Opt for pieces and accessories in team colors.
If you’re a 49ers fan who is sad that they didn’t make the quest for six this year, you can still support them by pairing a red or scarlet colored scarf with some gold-tone jewelry like these from JCPenney where you can save an extra 10% off your order.
This blue and red striped Olsenboye beanie at JCPenney will give you the warmth you’ll need if you’re an east coast native who is bummed about your New England Patriots not making the cut.
Looking to wear something to represent a team that’s actually going to the Super Bowl? Then you’ll probably look great in orange and royal blue like the Denver Broncos. Wrap yourself in orange skinny belt and cover your hands in a comfy pair of blue chenille gloves.
The bright green, blue and gray colors of the Seahawks will be hard to miss at the game this year, so you’re sure to stand out at any Super Bowl party in your color-coordinated accessories like this Nicole by Nicole Miller mini satchel juxtaposed against blue and gray striped socks.
Playing Favorites: The Favorite Player Tee
You don’t have to spend a ton of money to represent the love you have for your favorite team. You can find a lot of great jersey-style shirts to give you the look without the cost.
Get decked out in this shirt that showcases the team name and the best player, with fashionable arm stripes for the NFL look.
Find this and similar styles at Target for under $25 and get free shipping on $50 on select women’s clothing.
Dress It Up: All in Good Sport
Bodycon varsity style dresses are great for adding a sexier appeal to a man sport full of bravado. A dress like this is lightweight and casual, so they will go perfectly with your wedge-heel sneakers and some knee-high socks in your favorite team’s colors.
If you’d rather be a bit more literal, try a vertical stripe referee dress. This will come in handy if anyone at your party gets a bit too rowdy and you have to blow a whistle and issue them a red card before halftime. Both looks are from Forever 21, where you can get free shipping on orders over $50 every day.
Outerwear Looks: Go Varsity
Last but not least, one of the coolest looks to make a comeback recently has been the varsity jacket. Varsity jackets are no longer reserved for the boys on the field or court and are now worn by just about anyone who likes the look and feel of this versatile outerwear. Dress it up with ripped jeans and low heels, or dress it down with shorts and sneakers.
This borrowed-from-the-boys look is street chic and a great piece for any Super Bowl party. And did I mention that a matching team beanie would totally rock this Forever 21 look?
No matter which team you’re rooting for, be sure to style yourself in comfortable clothes that any NFL fan would envy at your next Super Bowl party. Game on!
