Learn how to Costume For Soccer Season From A Former NFL Cheerleader

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Not Thanksgiving or Christmas. It is soccer season. Starting last Sunday, the following Sunday without soccer isn’t till February of 2015.

As I get ready for this season, each reality and fantasy, I consider statistics, trades, accidents and about what I am going to put on every Sunday. Whether or not I’m at residence on the sofa, at my favourite sports activities bar or within the Superdome (the place I will have a chance to see a few games), I like to put on workforce colors, but also look fashionable.

To give me recommendation, I turn to my BFF, Melanie Coburn. She is an inspiration in love and enterprise (she and her husband run Cadre DC, a neighborhood of pros), a real beauty (in and out) and a former Redskins cheerleader. She is aware of about soccer, and about fashion.

She tells me about how she received her begin in cheerleading and football:

I grew up in Germantown, MD and went to Seneca Valley Highschool the place I was a Cheerleader for our State Champion Football workforce from ’93-’95 (where I found my love of soccer)! I then spent a year cheering on the Nittany Lions at Penn State University, however then transferred nearer to home to the University of Maryland, College Park in ’96. I used to be a Maryland Dancer from ’96-’97 before making the Redskinettes (they didn’t officially change the name to Washington Redskins Cheerleaders until 1999). I was a “First Lady of Football” from ‘ninety seven-’01 after which turned the Advertising Director (until 2011, 10 years). Being a Maryland woman at heart, I do cheer for the Ravens whenever they aren’t playing the Redskins — together with on the Super Bowl in New Orleans in February 2013 (my first ever Tremendous Bowl)! Though I’ve moved on from the NFL, I’m still a big fan and proceed to cheer on the Skins! “Once a Redskins Cheerleader, all the time a Redskins Cheerleader!” I even named my Fantasy Soccer workforce, “First Lady of Soccer”!

And then we speak about outfits. Here are her recommendations. Keep in thoughts every thing is Redskins-themed given these are Melanie’s recommendations — my staff colours are, well, totally different…

Watching the game(s) at residence: the goal is to be comfortable, relaxed, but not in your pajamas. (For me, that is Thursday night time and Monday night time soccer). The proper pair of yoga pants that includes your workforce colours paired with the right T-shirt (Alyssa Milano has a group with lots of feminine items on NFL Store on-line) and in case your feet all the time get cold, remember these socks.

Watching the game(s) at your favourite sports activities bar: the goal is to have a “going out style,” and you do not have to worry about the weather since that is indoors. For me, this is most of my Sundays, and although for particularly vital video games I have my “fortunate outfit” I’ll otherwise comply with this advice: Build your outfit round a quarter length sleeve Junk Meals Tee (quarter size sleeves are all the time elegant) and pair with your favourite pair of boot-reduce jeans and these wedges.

Early season or warmer weather tailgating: be comfortable, and by no means go away the home without your favorite sunscreen. You possibly can additionally pair this casual outfit with shoes that work well on grass and at all times look polished, like the must have Lillybee U flats.
