This has been an exciting season once again for football fans in Seattle, and thanks to the success of this past week, Seattle is headed to our second Super Bowl. Sweet!
While game day attire can often resemble a costume party look, there are some options for the more style savvy Seahawks fan. And, thanks to some very clever local Seattle design businesses, Seahawks style is not an oxymoron.
Last year Homefield Sporting Company introduced the wildly popular 12 Ème Femme and 12 Ème Homme sweatshirts with 12th Woman and 12th Man written in French in chic heather gray and white, or tone on tone black. They are perfect for supporting the home team while showing some cool style. After the big win last year, the company introduced another design: shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies with the word, “Gagnant,” meaning “winner” or “to conquer.” While the 12 Ème Femme sweatshirt continues to sell out at Tarboo in Pioneer Square, hopefully there will another production run on this style soon. Magnifique!
Sportswear for women often suffers from the Goldilocks syndrome. It can often be either too boxy or too fitted or just a little bit too masculine. Based out of Seattle, PoshSportswear specializes in selling high quality “contemporary couture spiritwear” for women sports fans of the University of Washington Huskies, Washington State Cougars and the Seattle Seahawks. Pieces like the Slouchy Pullover Eco Black Sweatshirt have a vintage look with contemporary, feminine style. The fingerless cableknit wool gloves have small glittery “12’s” on them that aren’t flashy—just fun. Trendy slouchy beanies and fitted Londoner hats show street style inspired pieces with glittery logos. All PoshSportswear pieces are custom made per order and take approximately 3-5 business days to ship, so plan ahead.
Thankfully, you can achieve a “Hail Mary” in fashion by getting your mitts on one of these coveted pieces before the big February 1 game. Get into the spirit of cheering on the home team without giving up on looking stylish, and—Go, Hawks!
