Super Bowl Sunday is this weekend and even if you're not a die-hard NFL fan, odds are you have some plans for the big day—even if that means only paying attention to the commercials or tuning in for the halftime show (umm Beyonce, anyone?). And because we're in full support of a day that's all about showing off team spirit, we're taking a closer look at how to wear a jersey (you know, the same jersey everyone else will be wearing ... cringe) in a fashion forward way.
Whether you're rooting for the Denver Broncos or the Carolina Panthers, both jerseys are doused in deep shades of classic navy blue and black so the matching potential is endless. You can wear said jerseys with a pair of jeans or sleek leather pants and add in extras that subtly (key word: subtly) call out the other colors. Keep scrolling to see how you can stand out this Super Bowl.
You're Rooting For: The Denver Broncos
Why It Works: Leather pants are an unexpected piece that is sure to turn heads. Statement accessories—like a perforated clutch and bright orange pumps—elevate the look without being too matchy-matchy.

You're Rooting For: The Carolina Panthers
Why It Works: Boyfriend jeans give off a casual vibe, as do not-so-basic sneakers which match the metallic stripes of the jersey. Finish off with an optic white leather jacket and a polished, ladylike bag for a feminine touch.
