With the NFL preseason underway (have you watched yet?), we’re already yearning for tailgates, Monday wing nights and the sexy men who make leggings look studly. Yep, we’re actually looking forward to Monday’s 9-to-5 (have you voted for Best 9-to-5 Girlfriend yet?) since we get rewarded with a good game once the workday is done.
Imagine how excited we were when we realized that so many of fall’s trends speak to our football obsession. These adorable and affordable picks make this season’s fantasy wardrobe team.
Look like you’re going to throw the ol’ pigskin around in Dean & Ozzy Suede Scalloped Lace-Up Boots ($68 at Urban Outfitters). The brown lace-ups are reminiscent of back-in-the-day cleats, and booties are the bold footwear for fall.
Sport a cropped tee (a fab fall style) for a play-ful spin on your usual vintage topper. Try Rebel Yell’s 1978 V-neck Football tee ($66 at boutiquetoyou.com)—the dipped neckline, hot red color and cropped hem take this sporty style super-sexy.
With the temps dropping, your best defense is to hike up your outerwear with Junk Food Clothing’s NFL hoodies. This Boston Patriots (now the New England Patriots!) hoodie ($52) combines all-purpose—zip-up, fleece and hoodie—with adorable—vintage logo, destroyed design and pretty blue hue. Check out their NFL Women’s Store for more!
Look as stellar as some of your favorite players in Juicy Couture’s Lace-Up Legging ($79 at Zappos Couture). Comfy enough for a Sunday or Monday Night Football marathon at home, or great workout wear for your very own game.
Varsity sweaters are a great nod to old-fashioned high school football, and they’re so on trend for autumn. The BDG Varsity Cardigan ($48) at Urban Outfitters takes classic staples like piping, a deep V-neck and stripes along one arm for a spin with a modern scooped bottom.
