Football Kits Are Our New Favourite Weekend Wear

Soccer gear is having a serious style moment, which means it’s easier than ever to incorporate team spirit into your regular uniform. Here are four of our favourite buys from the official FIFA store.

The Game Day Move:

The Team Scarf

The beauty of the team scarf is that it’s an easy display of allegiance ready to accessorize any outfit — even a suit. Plus, along with keeping you warm during crisp evening games, it can act as a banner to raise with pride every time your team scores. Because it’s probably best to leave homemade signs to the crowd at a Harry Styles concert.

The Outerwear Option:

The Track Jacket

Track jackets are having a big year. Armie Hammer spent his awards-season campaign for the Lombardy-set Call Me by Your Name sporting every Italian’s favourite off-duty look in a full variety of colours, and Moncler and Gucci have both recently debuted high-fashion takes. Adidas’s Team Germany design isn’t too shabby, either.


The Streetwear Style:

The Jersey

The football shirt checks a lot of the current moment’s biggest trends: giant logos, technical, moisture-wicking fabrics, and — thanks to an endorsement by edgy designer Gosha Rubchinkskiy — an ongoing flirtation with streetwear culture. For a casual look, try sporting Nike’s Brazil jersey with slim black jeans and sneakers.


To Hit the Actual Pitch: 

The Official Ball


Adidas dubbed this year’s game ball the Telstar 18, which sounds like the name of a futuristic flying car. In fact, it’s a nod to the 1970 World Cup, when the original Adidas Telstar was introduced as the first match ball adorned with black panels — making it a high-contrast “television star” on TVs broadcasting matches live for the first time.
