It's football season once more. You know what that means. No, no, I'm not talking about your Fantasy Football League gearing up again. I'm talking about ladies thinking it is a good idea to go around wearing football jerseys. Ugh. Excuse me while I throw up into the bag I keep just for this purpose.
Look, I support boyfriend jeans and oversized button-downs. I've got no beef with ladies wearing ties or a shoe that could be described as "mannish". I've long been a fan of Annie Hall, and as such, I think ladies who can pull off that look should! I just think that broads in jerseys are the exception to this rule.
Sure, you're supporting you team, but couldn't you do it with a hat? Or by waving a pennant flag? I'm not saying you've got to oust your team spirit in order to be fashionable. I'm just saying that there are alternatives to doing it while wearing an item of clothing that is designed to make everyone look like a fat, terrible sandwich.
Lots of ladies try to rectify the jersey's inherently unflattering shape by making it "sexy." I put that word in quotes because tying your jersey into a knot in the front in order to expose your midriff makes it look like there's been some sort of accident and you have to let your abs breathe at all times or you will die. None of it works. Just wear a tee-shirt, dudettes. I promise you, the world will be a better, happier place for us all.
Do you think ladies look okay in football jerseys?
