March Madness took the nation by storm, but it’s over now and we have a new NCAA basketball champion. Opening Day has passed by now, and Cincinnati has rejoiced, celebrating the Reds. Pretty soon football season will have its shining moment yet again. We are in an endless cycle of awesome sports! In the northern Kentucky/Cincinnati area, there are quite a few teams to support. The Reds in baseball; Bengals in football; University of Cincinnati, Xavier (Go Muskies!), and Northern Kentucky University (Go Norse!) in NCAA basketball. Sports are a huge thing to support around here!
So how do you dress up your sports gear so you still look fashionable? There are many ways to do so. You can wear your favorite sports team shirt and a pair of high-waisted shorts in the warmer months, which is a personal favorite of mine. You can wear jeans, a team-related shirt, and a cardigan; or, as this Fashionista has here, a classic sports team sweatshirt, leggings, and booties. Cute, comfy, and classic.
To give some background, Northern Kentucky University’s (NKU) first year for eligibility in the NCAA tournament was this year. What’s most exciting about that is NKU made it into the tournament, which is a huge deal here in Kentucky because we are a basketball state. So it was a great time for NKU, as stores were quickly selling out of NKU gear.
With that being said, the Fashionista here was super excited to show off her NKU gear and Norse Up. As mentioned, it’s a simple outfit that you will often find on college campuses. I also want to mention that keeping the bottom half one color brings the focus to the upper portion of the body, as well as makes the body look longer.
This Fashionista is also one of those natural beauties without makeup. Ever since Alicia Keys came to the forefront as a no-makeup advocate, it has really taken off. All women should feel beautiful with or without makeup based on their preferences, and it is important to remember there are women who don’t wear makeup and look beautiful doing so.
Go support your teams and schools during whatever sporting season you love!
