As someone who was born fiercely competitive, I look forward to Super Bowl Sunday each year. Who doesn’t love an excuse to get together with friends on a Sunday evening and indulge in the ultimate party food mix of nachos, wings and prosecco (if you’ve never tried bubbly with wings, you’re missing out). Food and drink aside, I truly love watching the camaraderie of the two teams and enjoy seeing one event bring the whole country together for a few hours.
While I won’t get into which team I’m rooting for because #politics, I will happily get into what you should wear for whatever your Super Bowl Sunday festivities may entail. These outfit selections fit the bill for going ham on processed cheese and yelling at a TV while still managing to look super cute.
Whether you’re cheering for your favorite team or your favorite commercial, keep reading for three outfits you’ll want to wear to watch the 2019 Super Bowl.
For The Fair-Weather Fan
Perfect for the girl that has no interest in football and, if we’re being honest, is just there for the free drinks, cute boys and the adorable Budweiser commercials. Pair a cozy sweater with black leggings for a comfortable and cozy look. This is also the perfect outfit if you’ve managed to score a prime spot on the couch.
For The Sort-of Spirited Fan
If you want to make a statement but don’t have access to a team jersey, try wearing a graphic tee instead. Graphic tees serve as a great conversation starter, ensure you don’t look like a complete football dud, and are super comfortable - three musts for surviving Super Bowl Sunday. Pair yours with your favorite pair of white jeans (do yourself a favor and bring a Tide pen, just in case)!
The Halftime Show Fan
While the country seems to have lost enthusiasm for the Halftime Show over the years, I’m forever a Maroon 5 fan so I’m pretty excited about this year’s halftime event. If you’re the type that is only there for the Halftime Show and has plans to abandon ship afterward, pair a chic sleeveless top with high-waisted jeans and heels so that you can seamlessly make a bee-line to your next social engagement without raising eyebrows.
There’s something so fascinating about this year’s Super Bowl, with the epitome of the West Coast going to battle against the epitome of the East Coast.
