5 Gifts and 3 Looks All 12s Should Have
My name is Julia, but in the fashion world, I’m known as societygrl. I share my personal style and passion for fashion on my blog, SocietyGrl. I started blogging to share fashion and beauty advice, but I never imagined it would become such an adventure! SocietyGrl has taken me from Bellevue Fashion Week to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York City. I’ve interviewed the legendary Joan Rivers at Lincoln Center and even landed on Seattle Met’s Best Dressed List.
My latest adventure has been Seattle Seahawks football, and I’m all in. In my first post, A Seahawks Woman, I was delighted to discover that Seahawks games are incredibly cool and can be full of fashion opportunities. Now I’m ready to take this style game to the next level, who’s in?
Let’s start at the Seahawks Pro Shop, a one stop shop for all 12s. Have you ever been inside the new Seahawks Pro Shop at the stadium (there's one downtown, too)? The Pro Shop offers much more than your favorite football player’s jersey; it’s the destination for all things Seahawks. From boots to head warmers, there is a range of wardrobe staples from which to choose. The first time I visited, the place was filled with Seahawks apparel left and right, with plenty of accessories to pair. I was excited and a bit overwhelmed with all the choices for my first Seahawks gear purchases, so, I started where most 12s start and went straight to aforementioned jersey section and grabbed the iconic 12th Fan home jersey. Even though the jersey remains one of my closet’s most prized possessions, every time I visit the Seahawks Pro Shop I always discover new spirit gear I sometimes overlooked the trip before.
For instance, what says ‘I’m ready to open presents’ better than a Seahawks onesie? The holiday season is slowly creeping upon us, and the gift-wrap and presents are soon to be abundant. While browsing the Pro Shop, I scouted a number of great new holiday items, onesie aside, which should be on almost every Seahawks wish list. Besides the fact that the gift can actually be wrapped in Seahawks gift-wrapping paper, it’s what on the inside that counts. I spotted new spirit gear for pets, new items in jewelry and accessories, and even handbags! The Seahawks rain boots or a Women’s Wheel House Jacket, or even the shimmering Santa Hat, are all great seasonal gifts to your loved ones or for yourself. If you are lucky enough to grab one of these onesies before they sell out - no problem. Leave your onesie on and add your favorite Seahawks boot and a Women’s Wheel House Jacket from a “home-to-game” transformation for just the right amount of game day chic.
I couldn’t leave you without a few new looks, perfect for the colder months rolling in. Sometimes sporting only a jersey or t-shirt is not warm enough, especially on those rainy Seattle days where wet becomes a factor. Following suit with some of the biggest fashion houses in the industry like Chanel and 3.1 Phillip Lim (pictured directly below), I layered a few pieces; it’s one of the hottest runways trends from the Fall 2013 Ready To Wear collections.
I love layering because it keeps me warm walking to the stadium, but I can easily take off a few layers at the game if I get too warm. Pairing my Talent Scout t-shirt with the Women’s Sports Princess Full Zip , I added an extra layer of comfort and warmth with the Men’s Seahawks Scrimmage Full Zip hoodie. I believe that some of the men’s trends look better on a woman. I was thrilled to add the newest additions to my spirit gear - the ear warmer headband - because it makes any bad hair day better. And of course my pom pom! Add a pair of Seahawks colored Nike’s and the look is complete. Thankfully, the trend of throwing on tennis shoes with any outfit is back in style, so we shall use it to our advantage while it is still in fashion.
In this second look, the Pink Jersey instantly caught my eye at the Pro Shop. It’s great that there is a feminine touch to the Seahawks gear for some of us that like a pop of color now and then. The pink jersey is easy to style for an everyday street style look or even to the office for Monday Night Football game to show your support. Fortunately, that is an opportunity soon coming. The jersey let’s a little personality shine through and goes well with these Zara plaid pants, and plaid is so in this season! Black leather jackets are a winter staple. This FORA faux leather biker jacket compliments the jersey for an edgier look. I am thrilled that I stumbled upon these Seahawks wedges; they look amazing, and as a fashion bonus are easy to walk in!
Accessorizing the outfit with the clear clutch follows the NFL bag policy, and you have a whole new winter look with a Seahawks edge.
Happy Holidays & Happy Shopping!
