Sweatshirt with Side Slits
J.Crew
Sold by: J.Crew

Fit Guide
Instead of throwing on an old sweatshirt from your sorority days, or borrowing something from your husband/boyfriend/son, stay just as comfortable with this modified sweatshirt from J.Crew. The longer length and side slit make it easy to wear with anything from leggings to slouchy jeans, and the touch of style with the back zipper means you’ll still look cute, especially if you have your hair pulled up for the day. We love the casual look of the grey – so easy with jeans and black leggings - but it comes in a heather navy and black, too, so they all have the same effortlessly casual feel. In XXXS-XL and Petite, J.Crew’s modern fit ensures this is a must-have for everyone.

Game Day Style for the Ladies

“Game day” and “fashion” aren’t generally phrases that go hand-in hand. But there’s no reason to let your style standards go out the window when you’ve got football plans. Whether you are serious about your team or in it for the drinks, snacks, and socializing, comfort and practically have to take center stage.
If you’re heading to the game, warmth is a major factor. If you’re going to your favorite local bar, well, it could be hot or cold. And if you’re hanging out at home (yours or someone else’s), it’s simply all about casual style. In any of these settings, keep things easy. You’re not going to bust out a pretty silk top (no matter how careful you think you’re going to be), and you need to keep your footwear comfortable - you may be climbing stadium stairs or jumping up and down to cheer. This is one of those scenarios where under dressing will put you more at ease than over dressing.

This week, we’ll tackle them all, giving you 2 different outfit options for each type of football viewing fun in our Fashion Finds. And here, we’re highlighting some of our favorite items to kick it off. If you like something, just click on the “Shop It” button to buy it from our suggested retailer. And let us know what you think through the comments section below and on social media. Go Bears! (Sorry, we are from Chicago, after all.)

Vince - Wool Cashmere Zip-Turtleneck Sweater
Tailgating & Watching the Game at the Stadium. Another way to be game day ready is with an over-sized turtleneck sweater. And so, of course, we look to Vince. The easy fit and timeless style ensures you can wear this one season after football season. It comes in grey and cream, but this navy is so pretty with jeans, black leggings, or a pair of skinny corduroys as the weather continues to cool. It is a chunky wool and cashmere combination so it will keep you warm – be sure to layer a fitted long sleeve tee or thermal shirt underneath for added insulation. Our favorite detail is the zipper along the over-sized neckline. You can wear it zipped and cuffed, as shown, uncuffed for a high and stylish turtleneck, or unzipped for an open neckline. Or, you can do all 3 as the weather changes throughout the day. Once it gets really cold, it’s not so heavy that you can’t add your puffer jacket over it, but in the meantime, you can easily layer a scarf to it and add gloves.

Tailgating & Watching the Game at the Stadium. Before it gets so cold out that you need your heaviest parks, cozy layers are still key. This Free People jacket was just made for outdoor fun with its easy fit and detachable scarf. Yup, that awesome, over-sized scarf can be removed so you can layer a heavy coat over this jacket and still use the scarf once it gets really cold. In the meantime, wear this sweater jacket over a simple fitted tee or turtleneck (which will keep you warmer than a loose one where air can sneak in) and straight or boyfriend jeans and casual furry booties. The attached scarf will not only give you extra warmth, you won’t have to worry about losing it.

Watching the Game at Your Favorite Bar. The look of layers without the effort, this sweater/shirt combination is made for gameday style. Long and loose enough to wear with any of your favorite pants - from leggings to cotton pants or jeans of any shape - you can comfortably sit, eat, and enjoy the game. The shirttail hem has slits on the sides, so it won’t cling around the hips, and is made of a navy needle- striped cotton (click through to get a closer look, and check out the button-back details). The timeless fabric makes for a pretty contrast to the simple grey sweater that is mostly cotton, so you won’t get too hot if the restaurant gets warm – cheering can do that.

Watching the Game at Your Favorite Bar. Heading to your favorite local bar to watch the game with friends still requires comfortable clothes, and this Free People soft flannel tunic will have you doing it in style. It’s over-sized and relaxed, with a long length that is perfect for leggings (black, brown, or charcoal) or skinny jeans. It has side seam pockets giving some structure to the top – and a place to keep your phone close. You can even add a belt (any width) to create some shape, which is a great trick if you are petite and it will give it more of a casual dress feel. Add your favorite knee high boots.

Wilt - Thermal Big Backslant Top
Watching the Game at Someone’s House or Your Own. Wilt is definitely one of our favorite brands for super soft knits in modern, relaxed fits because they also come through in the style department. This thermal top has an easy shape and such a clever hem detail, which is why we’re showing you the back view. Click through the ‘shop it’ button to see the front, too. Wear a stylish top, but you'll know you're also wearing it to cover your behind. We won’t tell. The front is a bit shorter so the top doesn’t look too slouchy or overwhelming – perfect with any jeans, joggers, and leggings. A colorful scarf will add a pop of flare.

Watching the Game at Someone’s House or Your Own. These J.Crew sweats are the perfect way to relax with a little wink of football style. The lace-up detail not only has a sporty feel, but it’s actually really slimming by creating a little distraction from any potential bumps caused by football fun, like chili or pizza or nachos…Instead of a typical black or grey, the indigo is done really well. It has a mix of blue shades in it, and can really be worn just like any jeans – only much more comfortable – with any color tee or sweatshirt. It even looks cute with a plaid button down or easy sweater. To show off the lace detail, just tuck the front of your top in and leave the rest comfortably untucked. J.Crew’s modern fit gives these sweats a tapered look that is still relaxed and easy, in XXXS-XL. If you’re leaving the house, just add a cute pair of sneakers.
