9 to 5 Style: Team Colors in the Office

Welcome to 9 to 5 Style! The third  Monday of every month Jennie of A Pocketful of Polka Dots and I will showcase a theme featuring our individual takes on a professional look. Our aim is to inspire and show professional style does not have to mean boring and without personality. We hope you enjoy our 9 to 5 Style!

For this month’s 9 to 5 Style Jennie picked “team colors” as our theme. It can sometimes be tricky to show your team spirit and stay professional for the office.

Lucky for me my alma mater has classic red, white and black for team colors. Thanks UGA! It’s easy for me to dress in team colors and stay professional.

I did add a little twist to this outfit and wear the red on the bottom with a ruffle bell sleeve black top. We have a court function close in time to the Georgia/Florida game every year and I usually wear a red blazer and black pants to work that day.

If your team colors are not so traditional, you could still show your spirit by wearing a neutral outfit and accessories in your team colors.

Want to know a secret? I don’t really keep up with sports anymore. I was a cheerleader in high school so I kept up with football and basketball then. I went to all the home Georgia games in college, as well as some Georgia college baseball games. Then I graduated and got busy with life. My husband is not a sports fan. No football for him. Yep, we are the odd couple. He might watch motor cross or boxing once in a while, but no football, basketball or baseball. I might watch one Georgia football game per season now, but its not a priority. At least I can still show my alma mater some support by easily wearing their colors.
