W2015 8: Game Day

W2015 8: Game Day

Let me preface this post by saying I know nothing about football. Zero. Zilch. In fact, I don't really know anything about any sport. My level of interest in whether a given team wins or loses is based entirely on the company I find myself in, and how irritating they will be if the game doesn't end in their favor.

Selfish, I know.

But when life hands you color palettes, I say run with them! Though I've never been into sports, I've always been into spirit days. In school, I saw them as creative challenge -- an excuse to wear even quirkier outfits than usual.

I'm sure you don't need a tutorial on how to search your closet for team colors, so I'll just leave you with this note of advice: If you're aiming for classy over tacky, stick to a tonal palette that works for you.* For example, if your team color is bright orange and you know it looks terrible on you, opt for tangerine or pumpkin instead. As long as the right color is represented (and as long as the shade you choose isn't similar to the opposition's) you'll pass.

You'll pass with class.

*Disclaimer: Yes, I know sports colors are flashy for a reason and, at the end of the day, their purpose isn't to make their fans "look good." I've chosen to overlook this fact for my personal creative sanity.
