When it comes to fashion, I’m a minimalist. Playing dress up is always fun, but keeping it simple with a dash of pizzaz so to speak is more my style. Of course, nothing about the Nashville Predators has been simple this season, they’ve been dazzling opponents and fans across the league and skating their way up through the standings. Lately, I’ve had a bit of a love affair for the Tennessee team that’s treating the league as prey, and coincidentally, I’ve been a predator myself when it comes to statement necklaces and using them in my weekly clothing rotation.
This week uses the Nashville Predators color scheme, but may be the easiest look to date to interchange into your team of choice.
One thing that will never go out of style, is the jeans and t-shirt look. It’s a look that can be worn a million different ways and when game day skates around should be a g0-to before heading to any arena in the league. A navy blue and white striped long sleeve and boyfriend style jeans are a practical option for the female fan.
Adding a statement necklace to a simple t-shirt is an instant transformation. If you aren’t comfortable wearing something with so much bling, don’t be afraid to work your way into it. A smaller statement type necklace will still do the trick and take the basics to the next level.
A pair of ballet flats, or in our case, leopard print Keds will serve you well — a fun pair of printed Keds can brighten up any outfit, even if it’s not game day and is a highly recommended staple to invest in.
The type of bag you bring to the arena is key. Schlepping a monster tote that weighs almost as much as a hockey bag is a major faux paus. These days, you can’t smuggle much into an arena, so why not lighten the load and pick a wristlet or cross body style bag on game day. A smaller bag still fits the essentials, remember that!
Lets face it, there’s a few colors in the rainbow that just don’t suit some people. For me, yellow and orange make me cringe and growing up in Boston, an avid Bruins fan caused quite an issue for me, black and yellow gave me a bumble bee complex. So, to still support the team in a more subdued way, yellow nail polish became a staple. Painting your nails a team color is an easy and inexpensive way to still say go team go.
Lastly, the baseball hat. It’s a great debate. I’m all in favor of the hat look and wearing one on game day, no matter how dressed up or dressed down you are is a fun way to mix the team logo into an outfit. It’s also much cheaper than a jersey and something you can wear more day-to-day.
