Game Day Style

As a born and bred New Yorker, sports have always been a big deal. I can remember one of the biggest games in elementary school involving saying Yankees, Mets, Giants, Jets whilst pointing your thumbs up or down for which team you liked. My little thumbs were always up for the Yankees and Giants. At the time those teams were my favorite because they were my Dad’s favorite (always a Daddy’s girl right hur) and now I’ve grown my own attachment to these teams (and the food and drinks that usually accompany the games). Now is the G-Men’s time to shine, so I’ve created the perfect game day outfit with a little help from Fanatics and their NFL Jerseys. GAME DAY

Fanatics New York Giants Jersey: Obviously you’ve gotta start your game day outfit with your favorite team/player’s jersey. I’ve already told you that I’ve been a Giants fan since I was a little girl, but I’ve also been a huge fan of the Manning brothers for quite some time. I always thought the idea of two brothers managing to make it big in one of the most competitive fields in the country was so inspirational. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that Eli plays for the Giants and has an arm that can throw for dayzzz. Fanatics has one of the best selections of NFL Jerseys around so you’ll be able to find your favorite player’s jersey easy peasy right here.

Red Sweater: Football season in NYC is quite chilly so layering is key. I like to layer a sweater with one of my teams colors underneath my jersey to really show off my team spirit and to keep my arms from freezing off my body at the tailgate. Fashionable and functional. Can I get a hell yeah! No? Too much? Okay…..

Boyfriend Jeans: I’ve been living in my boyfriend jeans lately and they are perfect for a relaxing day watching your team kick butt. I like mine with rips in the knees for a little extra flare!

Beanie: Remember that NY cold I was telling you about? Well a beanie is a great option to help you keep warm, not to mention look pretty darn cute. Oh and hypothetically if you hadn’t washed your hair in a few days a beanie will totally cover that right up. Just saying…..

Booties: Booties are my latest obsession. They’re cute, fashionable, and comfortable. Done, done and done. They’ll help give the outfit a little more of a girly twist!

You guys know I’ll be rooting for my Giants this football season (fashionably of course). Who is your favorite team? What’s your game day style? Let me know! Also don’t forget to follow me on Instagram @loansandlouboutins to get a daily dose of fashion and craziness.

Taylor Swift’s ‘Fearless’ NYC Fashion

It’s no secret that I absolutely adore Taylor Swift. That chick is a class act, with a sense of humor, endless talent and a humbleness that most celebrities could take a note from. Since moving to the Big Apple, Taylor has seriously stepped up her fashion game. I mean, homegirl looks better leaving the gym than I do on my best day. I seriously don’t understand how one human being can be so on point with their fashion day-in and day-out. Don’t just take my word for it. Check out a few of my favorite T-Swizzle looks below and a few ideas on how to recreate the looks. Oh and real quick, Taylor you should know: girl you be killin em,  you be killin em.

  Look #1: Romping Around sev-taylor-swift-street-style-floral-romper-nyc-lgn

Here, Taylor shows off her mile long legs in a floral romper, paired with yellow heels, a neutral tope purse, and her trademark red lip. Let me just clarify something here: this is a picture of Taylor simply leaving her apartment. Now, when I leave my house I’m usually searching frantically through my purse for my keys/cellphone/wallet/whatever it is I’ve misplaced that day, while trying to remember if I turned off the curling iron. Meanwhile, Tay is all like “Oh, hey paparazzi, what’s up?” She probably continued on to save a kitten and find a cure for cancer. To replicate this classy look, try this floral romper from Forever 21. For a little more definition, belt the romper at the waist a-la Taylor. Next, add a fun pop of color with your shoes, like these hot pink suede heels from Steve Madden.

Look #2: Casual Chic

Taylor chose this fun,casual look for a lunch date at Sarabeth’s with her model BFF Karlie Kloss. Clearly not only does Taylor have good taste friends and restaurants (Sarabeth’s Popeye Eggs and Buttermilk Pancakes are to die for), but she also has great taste in casual chic attire. Now, from the front Taylor appears to be wearing a fairly conservative, white, quarter sleeve shirt, but then she turns around and BAM the shirt exposes the entire lower portion of her back. It’s like the most beautiful mullet of shirts; business in the front, party in the back. She paired the adorable top with cut-offs, nude heels, and a classy black structured bag. This cute little long sleeve crop top with an exposed back from NASTY GAL would be perfect for recreating this look. Pair it with high-waisted jean shorts for the perfect summer-chic ensemble.

Look #3: Sexy in the City

This might be my favorite Taylor Swift street style look of all time. First, I love the matching crop top and skirt. Plus, the plunging crop top is perfectly balanced out with the knee length skirt, which stays age appropriate with the front slit. The dainty purse and neutral shoes let this adorable polka-dot ensemble speak for itself. I’m personally obsessed the the matching skirt/shirt combination and this look has become a favorite amongst celebrities like Taylor and Ariana Grande. Try the look out for yourself with a fun floral pattern set like this one from Forever 21. Take a note from Taylor and let the look stand out by keeping your accessories neutral and to a minimum.

If we can learn anything from Taylor Swift it’s this: don’t let boys make you cry (but if they do, write a song about it that they’ll have to hear on the radio 24/7), a red lip is always a ‘do’, and class and confidence are the best accessories a girl can have. P.S. Taylor: if you’re looking for some more NYC friends, I’m totes available.
