Super Bowl Outfit Ideas for Game Day

It's time the couch saw you with real pants on.

Full disclosure: I have no idea what anyone is doing for the Super Bowl (opens in new tab) this year. Whatever your game day plan, the best part of the Super Bow is everything that surrounds it, IMHO. Snacks. The halftime show. The cultural conversation around commercials. And yes: Cute outfits that aren't too on the nose. That's the part we're here to help with. Outfits that look like you tried—and aren't the same old sweats you've been wearing since last March—but not too hard. Also? When game day is over, these outfits still slap for other occasions, too. Each one strikes the perfect tone of dressy, not fancy, and comfy, not sloppy. What more do you want in a 'fit? That's what I thought.

Aside from the excitement of watching the game itself, the Super Bowl (opens in new tab) is always an excellent excuse to a) get together with friends, b) eat wings and nachos, and c) look good while doing both. Not all Super Bowl outfits are created equally, but these six options, ahead, fit the bill for any type of vibe you're looking for—whether you're cheering on your favorite team or really just here for the commericals.
