Not going to lie you guys, I’ve been slacking with football this year. I like to consider myself a sporty person and pretty in-the-know of sports news and games, but this year I just really haven’t cared to be quite honest. I had no idea when the Super Bowl was let alone, who was playing in it this year, until yesterday… I’m pathetic I know. With that being said, it gave me an idea. Why not dedicate this post to the delayed people, like myself! As a result, I’ve got you covered in this post on what to wear to any “last minute” (because it is, to us) Super Bowl parties!
Before we begin, we have to do a bit of homework first. We need appear that we know what’s going on, despite the fact that we don’t. I have graciously done this step for you all. After, three minutes of research, I found out that Super Bowl Sunday is indeed this Sunday! Also, the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons are taking the field this year. Exciting right?… I feel like the Patriots are always in the Super Bowl. Although, we participate for the commercials, beer, and food, so it doesn’t really matter. Fake it till you make it, am I right?
The next step, that makes it a bit easier deciding what to wear, is knowing the teams’ colors. Pretend your rooting for one. If you really are rooting for a specific team, you are most impressive my friend. If this was baseball, I’d be right there with you. Obviously the Patriots’ team colors are Nautical Blue, New Century Silver, White, and Red. The Falcons’ team colors are Black, White, Silver, and Red. It’s like the fashion gods new you wouldn’t be in-the-know! How easy can it get?
When deciding what to wear, my whole concept was to come off casual and sporty, but to also have some punch of fashion to it. When going to a Super Bowl party, it’s super casual to begin with and most people are wearing their team’s merch. If you have some, great! That was easy. If you are like me and don’t have any merch, use this time to showcase your favorite sporty sweatshirt or jacket! Obviously, don’t go out and buy a new one, for I know you have a bunch in your closet. In addition, I just wanted to take the time to introduce you to my favorite sweatshirts from the brand MSGM (of course my particular sweatshirt is sold out…). Never fear though, there’s so many more cute ones!
My all-time favorite Italian designer is Massimo Giorgetti, who created the brand MSGM. He is basically me as a man, fashion designer. With inspiration from indie music, contemporary art, the web, and color, his style has emerged and grown into the sporty, creative, entrepreneurial millennial’s dream ! That was a mouthful. “With a Kaleidoscope world made of colors, shapes and lines, he has capably caught the public’s interest and attention and has been acknowledged as one the most intriguing brand of the moment.” I’ve linked my favorite sweatshirts of his down below, but you can find a million more on Farfetch.com. He is a luxury brand, so just keep this in mind.
To add that dramatic pop of fashion, these flatform, Marc Jacobs slides are just the piece for this occasion. You can find them on Hautelook for almost 50% off, but the sale ends today! I repeat, the sale ends today! Believe me when I tell you, that you will love them on as much and you love looking at them. They literally feel like wearing vans, but you are two/three inches taller. The perfect shoe for us shorties. In addition, you couldn’t be more on trend for the Spring.
To wrap up this post, don’t sweat that you are last minute to game. So am I. All you have to do, it utilize your closet! Grab your favorite sporty jacket (which I know you have in blue, white, red, black, or silver). In reality, you probably have one in each of those colors! Layer your favorite sweater underneath and throw on some jeans. The look is not complete without a fun pair of sneakers, though and then you are good to go! Although, your real homework for the day is to check out MSGM! I promise, you will fall in love.
