Well, it is already the middle of March, and the NCAA men’s college basketball tourney has begun. I grew up watching my father coach UNLV in three final four tournaments. The memory of winning the National Championship in 1990 makes me nostalgic every year when this time comes around. The athletes and coaches pour their heart and souls into every game, and the excitement of it all never gets old. This year, I will get the opportunity to see the Sweet 16 here in New York City, and this Game day style is casual and works for every fan. If your team is in the hunt, make sure to sport your team colors along the way!
The track jacket is back, and there are no shortage of great ones to be found from many retailers. I love this one from H&M because it is simple and comes in a few different colors. I will mix it up with tees during the games, and it will look fun at night with an edgy leather skirt in the summer.
Athleisure is huge right now, and many stores like Topshop are doing fun throw back vintage tees from different college and pro teams. Since I am not really routing for any team in particular, this fun Wildcats shirt screams team spirit with a cool girl edge.
Now to the jeans. If you are following trends, frayed and patchwork boyfriend denim is all the rage. Try a fun style that suits your body type. This pair from Zara have a wide leg and sit at the hip, which is perfect for my frame. If you are a bit shorter or curvy, try a higher-waisted pair that come to the ankle with a straighter leg.
One way to show your rah rah style, is with a pop of gold! Thanks to H&M this handbag not only adds a fun touch, but it is under $50. I paired it with a simple watch from H&M as well and stacked on some rings from Topshop to make the look my own.
Last, lets not forget about the shoes Stan Smith! I love the comeback that Adidas is having right now. This throwback sneaker was one of my first pairs back in the day, and now they are back on trend. I love that you can get them in plain white, or find a pair with the small bit of color at the heel.
Cheers to MARCH MADNESS AND GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE ON THEIR BRACKETS! Check out mine below, who knows how it will shape up, but it sure is fun to do one with friends. You can sign up right at www.espn.com.
