Life in a world without sports. Ever since the NBA season was suspended, and baseball season never got off the ground, I must admit that life in a world without sports has been pretty boring. I, and I’m sure many other avid sports fans took for granted being able to turn on their televisions and catch their favorite sport(s) team in action.
I myself am a huge football and basketball fan. High school, college, semi-pro, professional, you name it, I’m watching it. But what I miss the most, is the amazing football season the Kansas City Chiefs had! Planning outfits for Red Friday was my joy of the week. And even though I spent most of the NFL season in Philadelphia, I still made a point to wear my red each and every Friday, and never miss a game. Here’s a look back at Red Friday outfit before the Super Bowl!
If you’re new to The Mod Little Melanin, the motto here is to “Stay Mod.” So what exactly does that mean? To me, to stay mod means to stay true to who you are; to be cool, chic and authentically you. I chose to stay authentically true to my values through my style that I showcase on The Mod Little Melanin, and only selecting to represent brands that allow me to display my authenticity.
This outfit completely represents that to me. Rather than simply wearing a Chiefs shirt and a pair of jeans, the standard Red Friday look, I instead choose to wear a bright red fringe open sweater from Nasty Gal. I love how trendy and fun this piece is. It can literally be worn in a million ways and layered over many different looks.
For this particular look, I layered this sweater over a black cropped top. I would’ve preferred to layer it over a white top to really nail Chiefs colors in this look, but I didn’t have one readily available. I finished off the look by pairing a pair of bell bottom jeans from Shop Hope’s. I am absolutely in love with these jeans! They are available in small, medium and large on their website. I’m wearing a large, but I could have easily sized down to a medium for a more fitted waist, as these pants don’t have belt loops.
I completed the look with a bold red lip. I’m wearing Mary Jo K Lipstick by Kylie Cosmetics. I also added a pair of hoop earrings.
Happy Red Friday!
