Wearing jerseys and painting the logo of your favorite NBA team on your face is not the only way to show off your love and support. Nowadays, there are so many ways you can display support for your favorite team with the smart use of staple outfit pieces, carefully selected accessories, and even intricate makeup looks.
So, whether you’ll be heading out to a stadium to cheer your favorite team on, or you’ll simply be browsing through the NBA playoffs bracket and watching a few games online, as long as you wish to stand out from the crowd, you can use the unique ways we share below and still remain absolutely fashionable.
Choose a staple and coordinate the rest of your look around it
When choosing or assembling an outfit, it’s always a good idea to start off with your staple piece and work your way around it. For instance, if the colors of your favorite team include yellow and purple, you could opt for a semi-elegant purple blazer and introduce yellow through some statement pumps. The rest of your outfit should remain natural and subdued to help make the statement pieces truly pop.
Let your support show through fun accessories
If you wish to remain comfortable and not worry too much about your outfit, you can still show off your support through accessories. Choose scrunchies in the colors of your favorite team, or even weave some colorful strings in your hair. Alternatively, you can choose to dress up with a fashionable handbag and a quality belt that feature the colors of your favorite team. Do not forget that in this situation, less really is more, so don’t go overboard with accessories, instead, let only a few carefully selected ones work for you.
Master the art of makeup
Mastering the art of makeup is no easy feat, and it may take you quite a bit of time and practice to get there. But depending on the look you’re going for, and the occasion you wish to rock your look at, things don’t really need to be as serious or as complicated as you may think.
Sure, an intricate cut-crease or a halo-eye look with some fake eyelashes and an elaborate eyeliner will definitely turn heads. But, so will a simple eye shadow and a lipstick in the colors of your favorite team. Of course, if you’re coming up with a look you want to show off at the stadium during the next live game, you can allow yourself to be a bit messy. However, if you’re trying to come up with an office-appropriate look, try to keep the most things minimal and tasteful, yet still team-inspired.
As you can see, there are so many options to let your choice of fashion speak of your love of the NBA aside from simply throwing on an oversized jersey. So, get creative, do some brainstorming, try out different looks and makeup tricks, and don’t forget to have fun.
