HOW ASOSERS DO FOOTBALL SHIRTS

By Style Feed Staff, 10 May 2018

Great news, folks – we’re only five weeks away from the start of an epic month of football. And to get into the spirit of things, the gang at ASOS HQ have been stocking up on their favourite team’s shirts. So, if you want to kick off the festivities in style, here’s some inspiration on how to wear your chosen shirt with the rest of your kit.

For SS18, head-to-toe prints are a certified sartorial win. The rule? The louder, the better. And this is where your football shirt comes perfectly into play, imparting a bold street-style-meets-sports-kit influence on your getup. Bella’s checkerboard Croatia tee makes an instant impact, and tucked into a retro-style polka-dot midi, makes for a power pairing. Red pointed heels round off the colour-coordinated look nicely.

Donning the Brazil Home Stadium shirt, Nawal has opted for a laid-back look with a touch of skater style. Yellow is a tricky colour to pull off, but he manages it by wearing a long-sleeved white top under his strip. On his bottom half, he smartens up the ensemble with a pair of pinstripe trews and matching Converse. Notice how he’s opted for subdued colours down low to offset the brightness of his shirt.

Sometimes, simplicity is key. And when you’re working a bright centrepiece? It’s even more important. Lakeisha goes for a bold pop of colour with the azure Brazil tee, but keeps all eyes on the upper half, opting for some minimal relaxed-fit trousers on the bottom. To finish the casual look, easy Nike Air Max 97 treads in black with contrast piping.

Featuring French blue accents, the France Home Stadium shirt is as slick as they come. To counterbalance all those blue tones, Matt has injected his getup with hints of pink. He layers a pastel-pink shacket over his shirt and goes for wide-leg cropped trousers down low. Take note of how the striped patterning on his trews corresponds to his outer layer. And, just like Nawal, he rounds off his chilled outfit with a pair of minimal Converse creps.

Thanks to its crisp white colour, the England Home Stadium shirt is an easier one to style. Laura teams hers with laid-back cuts for a chilled take on the shirt. Up top, she pairs her strip with a structural poppy-red Weekday jacket. She keeps her colours subtle on her bottom half and goes for a pair of roll-cuffed slim-fit jeans. Joining in on the hype for retro trainer silhouettes, she wears a pair of all-black Air Max 1s to finish off her patriotic ’fit.

Repping Poland, our junior designer Seb forgoes any additional layers (hopeful move), and opts for a monochrome colour palette on his bottom half. The understated combo of black slim-fit jeans and steezy adidas NMD R2 Primeknit trainers mean the shirt stays the focal point of his look. Too slick.

Mashing up influences with eclectic pieces is a SS18 priority, and what better (and more timely) place to start than with a football tee mixed in with your everyday gear? Engine-red with a contrasting green collar, the Portugal tee is Stephanie’s main player of choice, adding a mensy sporty feel to her look. The casual vibe is amped up with raw-edge cropped jeans, plus some minimal white sneaks. But it’s the 80s-style animal-print denim jacket (in a retro crop, no less) that elevates the look, accentuating the red of the tee and adding a new-season twist.
