It’s officially summer which means longer days, warmer weather, and… the 2014 FIFA World Cup! That’s right it’s that time again where the screams of victory and vuvuzelas can be heard from miles around. It’s that time when friends flock around TV screens to watch their favorite futbol teams compete for soccer supremacy. Yep, nothing sparks World Cup fever like a gathering over futbol and fashion. That’s right, fashion! In case you didn’t know, futbol and fashion go hand in hand. Hey, you want to celebrate your favorite team right? — and there’s no better way to represent them than to do it in style. So in the spirit of soccer and celebrations, here are a few futbol-inspired looks to kick-off your summer style looking FIFA fabulous.
Style Suggestion: Make FIFA even more fabulous and host a World Cup cocktail party.
World Cup team colors are very vibrant and bold, so don’t be afraid to wear rich tones when cheering your fav team on. The “goal” here is to show your own sense of style while still represent your team or country. If you want to “kick” things up a notch try adding a statement piece such as a fabulous necklace or handbag. Incorporating a statement accessory is a definite style SCOOOOORE for any occasion!
What better way to celebrate style and the good ol’ U.S. of A. than with a little patriotic pizzazz. Red, white, and blue may be the primary colors here, but everyone will be ‘green’ with envy when they see your fabulous sense of style take center field.
