Inexpensive Ways to Wear Your Team Spirit This Football Season

If you love football as much as I do, you probably get PSYCHED every year when the NFL season kicks off! (Pun intended.) You probably also love to represent for your team with fabulous branded gear. But OMG, the prices on most branded team fashion items are ridiculously high. Never fear, your frugal fashionista is here!

There are several options shown below for showing your team love without breaking the bank. Click on the photos if you’d like to buy the item on or learn more. Be sure to read to the end of this post to see how I’ve personally rocked a few of these options to represent for my team!

Team-branded mardi gras beads and necklaces

Team-branded bracelets

Team-branded infinity scarves

Team-branded sunglasses

Team logo pins that you can add to clothing, purses and footwear   

Patches with your team logo that you can sew or iron on clothing and accessories 

An off-shoulder shirt layered over a tank top in your team colors (This a bonus option, since you’ll be able to rock these pieces with other outfits as well.)



A dolman top layered over a long-sleeve t-shirt in your team colors (This is a bonus option, since you’ll be able to rock these pieces with other ensembles as well.)

A denim jacket you can layer over a top with your team colors (This is a bonus option, since you’ll be able to rock the denim jacket with many other outfits.)

A puffer vest you can layer over a top with your team colors (This is a bonus option, since you’ll be able to rock the vest with many other outfits.)

If you’d like to take your team spirit to the next level, snag these team-branded tumbler sets for enjoying your game-time beverages! You can transport them along with your other game day items in these clear team-branded totes.


Below are a few examples of my game-day ensembles that show these strategies in action.  (Yes, I’m a Chicago Bears fan…I hope we’re still friends!) The first set of photos shows how I put a team logo pin in the front of my fedora and added helmet pins to the side of my team-colored boots. I also layered a jacket over a tank top with my team colors, and I’m transporting my beverage tumbler in a clear team-branded tote.




The following two photos show how I used iron-on patches to brand a dolman top and a puffer vest with my team’s logos. (FYI, I made the cut-outs on the sleeves of my dolman top myself for a little sass!) Had I bought these pieces as pre-branded products, they would’ve cost at least 4 times what I paid for them!



BOOM! There you have it sports fans…fabulously team-branded ensembles that didn’t break the bank. Whoever you root for, may you do it in style!

Cheers to a fabulous football season!
