Football fans often sacrifice style in the name of team spirit. But it doesn’t have to be this way! Fashion and football can go hand in hand as Levi’s showed with its recently released line of wearable football apparel for a select number of NFL teams.
If your team wasn’t one of the lucky few to get the Levi’s makeover, maybe your fortunes will improve today as we predict the next set of fashion trends for a few more squads. Football-loving fans of these teams will have no problem finding a replacement for that unflattering XL jersey.
New Orleans Saints: Statement White
You don’t need to be engaged to don a fully white frock in 2015. White was the dress color of choice for many of fashion’s biggest names, proving that anyone can pull off a head-to-toe neutral look. Try this understated sleeveless cocktail dress from Guess. Perhaps a little divine intervention will improve The Bayou Boys’ odds at a solid playoff run this season.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Neon Yellow
Yellow is one of the hottest colors this year, and Pittsburgh Steelers fans should take full advantage of a shade that is as loud as they are. We love this Neon Yellow Camree dress by Ralph Lauren from their Black Label Collection. You also cannot go wrong with a mustard yellow scarf, which doubles as a Terrible Towel. If all else fails, don a yellow hard hat, and embrace the “Men of Steel” team mantra.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Neo-Victorian
Runways are going back centuries, drawing inspiration from the 1800s. This is great news for Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans as pirate-chic is in. Think Victorian staples like rich velvet, ruffled blouses, and delicate lace with a modern twist. You cannot go wrong with this Victoriana lace-up top from Topshop. Finish the look with a cinched waist, courtesy of a corset belt.
Odds to be the next NFL fashion trend: 8/1.
Chicago Bears: Furry Shoes
Fur makes its return to fall runways, but it’s giving us a pump-fake. No jackets or shrugs this year as 2015 is all about Chewbacca-esque furry shoes like these “Princetown” slip-on loafers from Gucci. From fur accents to fully wool boots, Salvatore Ferragamo, D&G, and Topshop are getting shaggy with their fall looks. Chicago Bears fans should welcome this trend as a chic solution to Windy City winter woes.
