The Sportsanista is back at it again to talk Chicago sport fashion – and specifically, Blackhawk fashion! Back in October, when our city was convinced the Bears were heading to the Super Bowl, I showed you how to wear a Sporty Threads’ Bears t-shirt five ways. Well, the Bears’ season didn’t turn out the way we had hoped, but we sure had fun rocking the Bears’ look all season long.
This time, we are back at it again with another fabulous Sporty Thread’s find and donning the look for what else, the red-hot Blackhawks.
With the Chicago Blackhawks breaking franchise and NHL records left and right, there’s never been a better time to show your pride and support the Hawks’ ridiculous win streak than with a killer look. Nothing says “go get ‘em boys” quite like a vintage Hawks tee, some leather leggings and pumps!
Sporty Threads Vintage tee: $32.00
This Chicago Blackhawksvintage v-neck tee from Sporty Threads ($32.00) has so much versatility to anchor any look; and you guessed it, I’m going to show you how! Just remember, as we did last time, we are going to have to take some fashion risks here, but don’t worry….we will do them together. Shall we?
LOOK #1: Casual Friday at Work
It’s March, which means Spring has sprung, or at least in my mind it has, and these pants are bright enough they’d put Puxatony Phil right back in his hole. Floral print pants are all the rage this Spring, so if all the cool kids are doing it, so should you! Pair them with a nude pump to off set the pattern in the pants and logo in the shirt. Nothing like a made to order Casual Friday look for work!
LOOK #2: A Night Out on the Town/Game-day at the United Center
The hottest trend we have seen all year are leather pants. There is nothing more sleek and attractive than a great pair of these bad boys! This look has ease and comfort, but that’s a secret no one needs to know!
The clear pumps are all sorts of amazing and another trend this Spring. It’s a no fuss, on-trend look, to wear for a night out on the town with your friends. I say, be daring and wear this look to a game….you might just melt the ice.
LOOK #3: Heading to the grocery store or the Mall? Have Tommy Hawk come with!
Is there a dress code for shopping at the mall or grocery store? No, but there should be on some occasions. Here is a great way to dress up your Hawks tee, but not by over doing it. The white tuxedo blazer is added in for a level of sophistication and to give you some shape! Pair the blazer and tee with a pair of distressed denim to add some edge, and top it off with some mint pumps; now that’s a cherry on top! Tis the season for color!
LOOK #4: Warrior One Pose in a Hawks Tee
Headed to the gym or a yoga class? Trade in your Lululemon tank for the Hawks tee. The cotton is super lightweight, and great for any workout. Finish the look off with some flare like a military-esque jacket, a skull patterned scarf and of course, some flashy NIKE’s. Guarantee you that everyone will ask you where your outfit is from – or at least give you a “Go HAWKS”!
LOOK #5: Let’s Brunch
Brunching: A glutenous combo of breakfast and lunch, consumed late morning, early afternoon, all while being fashion forward.
To live in Chicago, means you partake in a brunch affair at least once a week. With Spring (the real spring) just around the corner…and the snow slowly melting….start prepping your spring brunch looks with the Hawks tee in mind. The tee gives the look a casual edge…how do you like that word combo? Pink, lace, denim, and the Hawks, Oh My! This look would work well with a bright skirt or a neutral color skirt. If you go the neutral skirt route, I suggest you add a bright pump for an extra kick in your step!
