Style Files: World Cup Wardrobe Guide

As the first few days of the World Cup pass us by in a blur of bitchfaces and high dose junk food ingestion, we think it’s important not to lose sight of the important things: Wardrobe.
Of course, what to wear depends entirely on the location. Many Kickettes will be glamming it up at swanky parties complete with champs, mini quiches and coat checks. Some of you, we’re certain, will flit to packed pubs for the loud, lairy atmosphere and and alcohol-fueled excitement. And those enjoying “jammie time” on the settee (for better ease of shoveling cheese & onion crisps down one’s gullet without judgment) must also be acknowledged.
Regardless of location, one must always look their best. So, grab a Jaffa Cake (or 12) and join us in a spot of virtual retail therapy. Follow our advice and you will be sure to look the business while cheering on your team.
Luxury Box at Soccer City Stadium
If you’ve made it to South Africa in the posh seats, you know you’ve really made it.
This type of occasion is a no expense spared glam-fest, where the champagne flows all night and you should dress accordingly.
Your Work Office/Tiny Cubicle
Stuck like a peasant at work watching the match? You can still subtly support your team in between nipping to the break room to catch a glimpse of the telly, frantically refreshing Live Score or sneaking an Internet stream at your desk (naughty but totes necessary). These are frustrating times Kickettes, but we know you can do it.

Bonus: Even your caffeine can show its support.
Down The Pub
What better place to be than surrounded by the intoxicated masses as you scream your head off and end up rooting for countries you can’t even locate on a map? The pub atmosphere is always brilliant, and in moments of both triumph and defeat you end up making new friends to celebrate or cry with.

A Posh Party
It is true that at parties of this kind the football viewing can take a back seat. Kickettes, however, will be sure to have a prime view of the telly while still being able to chat up the fellas and get prime service from the roaming champagne servers.
