When I hear the word party I think super cute party dress, a fabulous pair of stilettos, lots of sparkly jewelry and spending hours in front of the mirror doing my hair and make up.
But throw the word “football” in front of party and my visions of pretty party dresses are suddenly replaced with visions of jeans, tees and, gasp, sneakers. And then the panic sets in, I’m going to a football party, what should I wear?

- Plan for comfort. Games typically last over 3 hours plus you are usually snacking and drinking. Be comfy!
- Be casual but use accessories to show off your personal style.
- Be color coordinated. It’s best to pick a team to root for and rock their colors. Or at least not wear the colors of the opposing teams!
Victoria’ Secret launched the PINK Love NFL collection that feature all the NFL teams in super cute tees. Pair a tee with sassy jeans and heels or a denim skirt with booties. And don’t forget to color coordinate! Colored denim has been hot, hot, hot. Pick your teams color and rock it!

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE PANTS

EVEN CHEERLEADERS GET THE BLUE PANTS
****works great for Super Bowl XLVI contenders the Big Blue Wrecking Crew: New York Giants and in a darker hue, the New England Patriots!
STRIPES ARE ALWAYS A GOOD CALL, REF
Throwing a caution flag here: if you do stripes on bottom, keep it simple on top. It’s a football party not Project Runway! Go with one bold pop of color in an accent piece like a jacket or bag and play with comfy textures, not over embellishments.
Ok, okay, I know leatherpants conjure up the scene from Friends with Ross in the bathroom with the pants stuck around his knees, covered in sweat and baby powder trying to pull them up… but don’t let that discourage you! Leather leggings are great for fall and winter! Paired with oversized shirts, sweaters or tunics they are comfy and fashionable without saying “trying to hard.:

MAN TO WOMAN COVERAGE
Menswear inspired looks are great for gameday! Slightly structured but with a feminine power behind them. The looks have a preppy school-girl vibe but with a modern woman twist.
NFL CABLE KNIT NETWORK
Cable knit sweaters are my favorite things about fall and winter (and terribly missed since I live in Florida now). They are warm and snuggly and perfect for watching football for 3 hours! Just don’t throw one on over baggy boyfriend jeans. Rock it with some leggings and skinny jeans with fabulous boots!
Nothing says comfort like a tunic! Loose and drapey, they hug your curves without suffocating you! For winter climates, throw one over leggings and for warmer temps, go bare legs or tights and belt the tunic as a dress!
TWO MINUTE FABULOUS
Going to a football or Super Bowl party last minute and don’t know what to wear? Time for a “Two Minute Fabulous Drill!”
Grab your favorite flattering jeans. Tuck them into knee-high flat cowboy boots. Add playful long sleeve tee or loose fitting top. Drape long pendant charm for detail and personal style. Style hair. Done. Two minutes, fabulous!
