I’m going to be honest with you, each of the writers here at the Pink Puck have a different taste, and personal style. We all contribute to the “fashion” section on the site and it’s fairly evident that we all share likes and similarities, but each have our own spin on things. We all can’t love the Boston Bruins. I’d like to believe that diversity is enjoyed by our readers, the same way that it’s enjoyed by our contributors.
My personal style, much like my taste in food, varies drastically. I’ve always called myself an eat what I want-atarian. I don’t label myself because my tastes and desires change regularly. One thing that seems to stay constant, my taste in fashion. It may be somewhat eclectic, but it’s mine. I wear what I want, when I want, and don’t follow rules beyond my own happiness. A principal that more people should enjoy when it comes to wearing things they love. Nothing makes an outfit better than the confidence of the person wearing it.
All of that being said, when I contribute to the Team Look section, the outfits reflect my personal style. They’re meant to give our readers a creative spark to think outside the norm, or sometimes just add to it. Whatever team you love, tailor it to those colors, and the appropriate season — I know Edmonton Oilers fans won’t be wearing shorts mid-season. Without further adieu, here is my take on welcoming in Spring with a little Florida Panthers inspiration.
Creativity is beautiful and so are all of you.
While this look may be easier to pull off for Floridian NHL fans, it can be a nice way to support your team in the offseason for other areas in the league.
But it’s still hockey season my friends, so subbing pants for shorts and layering a lightweight cardigan underneath the jean jacket would work wonders for colder conferences.
While I’ve heard mixed opinions on jean jackets, mine is this: buy one, because they are durable and timeless. Yes, I said timeless. They’ve been around for decades and the style never really changes.
Sometimes the best outfit is filled with simplicity. A team tank or team shirt, jean jacket, shorts (or pants) and a cute pair of sneakers is the easiest way to show support at the rink, or around town. Simplicity occasionally likes a little spice, so adding a few bangles and a bold bracelet to the mix will do the trick. Give your jacket sleeves one roll so the bangles show!
Stating the obvious, but Panthers are cats — why not take a skate away from your usual sunglasses and try a pair of cat eye frames? They’re a fun, spunky alternative to the basics. You can also purchase them at fairly inexpensive prices; stores like Target, Charming Charlies and even TJMaxx offer great selections for under $15.
Lastly, the bag. I’ve never understood women that drag HUGE bags into sporting events. It’s not as if you’re heading to the movies and you’re trying to hide 15 sodas and an XL bag of gummy bears. Security WILL make you throw things out — so do yourself a favor and opt for a smaller cross-body bag, one that has enough room for the basics. Owning a neutral colored one of these bags is a fantastic idea. It’ll come in handy more than you might think.
Game fashion varies, but it doesn’t have to be boring — be confident and you’ll never serve a fashion penalty.
