What to wear to the Super bowl? Hot fashions like Sky tops and dresses, Rock & Republic jeans
Whether you’ll be hobnobbing with the stars — or hounding them, as the case may be — fashionistas say dress to impress. No shorts, sneaks or undies sticking out. This is the Super Bowl, people. Time to break out your cool threads.
For many celebrity parties, that means designer jeans and shirts for both the guys and the gals. Leave the tuxes and sequined cocktail dresses at home for next New Year’s Eve. The super game is all about being super hip.
Look for Sky tops and dresses on the ladies, said Debra Redmond, manager of Nordstrom at International Plaza. The Real Housewives of OC made them famous, and locals love them. They’re sexy, flattering for many figures and have some pizazz. Pair them with some Rock & Republic jeans and strappy jeweled sandals, you might make Carmen Electra swoon.
For the guys, check out long-sleeved, button-up woven shirts with 1921 jeans, said Scott Moore, owner of Urban Body men’s clothing studio in Tampa. T-shirts will be too casual for most affairs.
Moore recommends anything with embroidery or accents on the pockets. Think rock star chic, but without excessive bling. And, by all means, lose the Ed Hardy, he said. The shirts fell out of fashion when they hit Sam’s Club stores. “Anyone who is into image wouldn’t wear them,’’ he said.
Do consider getting a rosary bead-style necklace. The necklaces, which often have pendants, are “flying off the hook,’’ he said. “We can’t keep them in stock.’’
