Full disclosure: I have no idea what anyone is doing for the Super Bowl 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 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.
This year, the the Buccaneers and the Chiefs are playing. Both of their colors are red/maroon. Don't own a single maroon item? Try topping an all-black body suit with a shiny puffer in your team's tone, and rep quietly and with dignity.

Everyone will be wearing logo tees—and so will you! Only yours shouts out the one and only Anine Bing, not a fictional pirate or a potentially problematic chief. You could also swap the tee with any other in your repertoire, and pair it with a cozy overshirt, low-slung mules and washed-out denim. The look says I care—mostly about fashion and comfort, but also football and touchdowns.
