What to wear to the rugby
10 February 2022
From the stadium to a spot down at the local pub.
There’s nothing quite like chanting on your favourite team – the cheerful comradery, the buzzing atmosphere and the fast-paced exhilaration of a game playing out in real time. Well, thankfully you haven’t got long to wait as the return of the eagerly anticipated rugby championship we all know and love is here.
As proud partner to Exeter Chiefs, we’re looking forward to seeing some of our players head off to represent their national squads. Whether you’ll be cheering them on from the sidelines or spending a day at the pub with your own squad, we’ve pulled together a guide of exactly what to wear. Nothing calls for a Crew delivery more than the return of the rugby.
FROM THE SIDELINES
If you’ve managed to get your hands on prime tickets – lucky you! Back your team in something warm yet stadium worthy.
Layer, layer, layer – you’ll thank us later. Keep it casual in a button-down denim shirt then wrap the look up with a smart tailored coat. Throw on a cap, not only will it keep your hair in check, but it’ll shelter you from the inevitable drizzle and give this outfit a stylish varsity-spin. Finish with relaxed girlfriend jeans and slick leather trainers..
Dress for the best seats in the house. A hood is a must because, let’s face it, the weather is never predictable. We’ve layered our Lakeshaw hooded rugby over a shirt for a smarter feel. On chillier days, add a gilet for extra warmth. You’ll also likely be on your feet for long periods so partner lightweight chinos with trainers for all-day comfort.
Dressing for a day at the pub watching the game? Set the pace with these knockout looks.
Large-screen viewing and pints on tap? It’s a win win. When meeting friends at the local watering hole, we love our crossed oars hoodie styled with a navy blazer. Sharp and stylish. Team with jeans or lightweight chinos plus either trainers or desert boots. You’ll be ready for wherever the drinks take you.
No matter what team you’re cheering on, gain some style points in our Nellie dress. It has floaty tiers and a pretty floral print, with ¾ length sleeves to keep off the chill. Throw on a denim jacket over your shoulders and pair with white trainers. This look is in a league of its own.
