Cheering on your favorite sports teams in style

Team jerseys and T-shirts worn with denim skirts are unoriginal and lacking. Don’t sacrifice your style for the love of your favorite sports teams. Here are some stylish alternatives to the doldrums of the oh-so-typical sports wear.

When rooting for the Vikings you might want to trade in the #4 jersey for a plain, white tunic. Add some black leggings and a scarf with purple accents to show your team spirit. Pairing this casual look with heels or boots will give it a polished feel. And don’t forget accessories. A single, pendant necklace and a stack of thin bracelets should do the trick.

If you can’t bare the thought of ditching your favorite team shirt for the big game, don’t fret. Wear it with a circle or tulip skirt in a solid color. If your shirt isn’t too busy (basic team logo) wear a printed skirt in similar or contrasting colors. To finish the ensemble, tuck the shirt into the skirt and belt it. Pair the ensemble with heels for a dressier look or ballet flats for a more casual feel.

Leave the jersey in the locker room, and make a trade for the blazer. Pair a basic black or white blazer with your team’s shirt. Opt for a pair of jeans and heels to add an edgy yet sophisticated vibe to the outfit. If you don’t have a favorite team T-shirt try a tank in your team’s color instead.

Sports and fashion can go hand-in-hand with a little creativity and extra effort. Enjoy the game, and cheer on your team in style. Go Vikings!
