Blackhawks fashion

Today, viagra Friday, May 2nd, the Chicago Blackhawks have officially declared Blackhawks Day in an effort to get the city involved, we are asked to “share a picture of yourself decked out in your Blackhawks attire at work or school with the hashtag “#BlackhawksDay” on Instagram or Twitter to be entered to win the prizes.”

If you are caught without any new merchandise this playoff season, of course, we have some suggestions on what you should be wearing. Red and black fever is RAGING throughout the city and will only get worse as the Hawks go deeper into the playoffs.

This is the time of year when even casual fans dig out the Hawks gear and let their fandom be known. Let’s take a look at some of the different kinds of looks we are seeing out on the the streets and in the bars of Chicago: from the creatives to the die-hard trends.

FAN 1:  The Interloper – AKA: a date or friend who wants to be part of the fun.

This time of year, it’s crucial to pick your game day accomplices wisely. We all have friends who strategically dress for the playoffs, and these are the gals you want to hang with during playoffs.

The interloper is all about the accessories…what better way to be creative than a face decal, even a “Hawks-stach”. Easy to apply and will can convert any person into an instant fan!

FAN 2: The Smack Talker:  Fans that get joy from taunting the opposition.  This is Chicago after all, and we all love to trash talk, with class of course! As we prepare to face such opponents as Minnesooooota, Boston, New York, and LA; Hawks fans need to be ready with their chants.  We are the keepers of the Cup and professional athletes for whatever sport are constantly in the midst of a scandal so keep your ears peeled for smack talk and don’t be afraid to join in …. FYI: Minnesota is #1 in the country for contaminated lakes, Senator Al Franken has an uncanny resemblance to Daffy Duck and What actually is a WILD??  A team named after a forest? 

hot for player

FAN 3:  The Hot-for-Player: If you have been to the game, you know these fans need no explanation.  When they see their favorite player cast up on the scoreboard during a fight or on the way down the line shaking hands after a victory they are star struck.  Women around Chicagoland know not to take for granted that our team is absolutely smokin’. Women are fawning over the Hawks on and off the ice. A great option from Fanatics.com are these fitted t-shirts with your favorite players names on back.  Do you agree your Hawk crush corresponds directly to your age…Women in their 20s heart Kane and Crawford, and Women in their 30s love Sharp and Keith???

FAN 4: The Diehard – A True Hockey Fan: The diehard fans have SWEATERS (often referred as jerseys) and not just a single sweater with a single name but a rainbow array of sweaters; one for home and one for away.  Some superstitious fans will wear the same sweater every round of the playoff, especially if they are at a game wearing it and the Hawks win.  There is also the option to personalize with your own name, but a true diehard will chose their favorite defenseman or forward for their sweater, as an excellent selection…..

Don’t miss the chance to look awesome supporting the Blackhawks in this customized Reebok women’s jersey! This high-quality jersey is made of premier polyester fabric and features a cute, contemporary design that accentuates your shape.

Right now the Magic number is 12 and we’re only a quarter of the way through the Stanley Cup Playoffs so there is still plenty of time to find your style.  We’re here to help you become the Fashionista this Championship Team deserves! GO HAWKS!!
