Fashion Emergency: What Should I Wear to The Superbowl?

January 25 2010 | CeCe Olisa

Hey Cece,

I just started reading your blog recently. I noticed you give advice to us PSP’s and I wanted to ask your advice on this… I am headed to the Super Bowl in less than 2 weeks and I’m the only girl in my family bigger than a size 6…I’m a 16! I want to wear something fun to the Super Bowl (and after parties) without going over the top. Any great outfit ideas for when you know you’re going to be pictures with skinnies?!

Thanks girl.


Hey B,

First of all, congrats on your Superbowl trip… how fun!

I love clothes and fashion but I don’t talk about it too much on TBGB. (I try to leave those things to the professional plus size fashion bloggers) On the other hand, I do love a challenge, so I’ll take a stab at your question.

When it comes to sporting events, nothing is hotter than mixing masculine and super feminine. So if it were me, here’s the look I’d create:

I would take the T-Shirt of whichever team I’m rooting for and cut it into something sexy that shows my assets. Perhaps a halter top? I’ve converted Tshirts into halters a couple of times and its super fun and always a conversation piece. You can use rhinestones or sequins to embellish the logo etc.

If you’re scared or don’t know where to start, head to Borders and pick up 99 ways to cut, sew & trim your Tshirt


Of course you’re going to be outside, so I would get a cute cardigan to go over the Tshirt.

Then I would either do something relaxed like a denim skirt, tights and boots. OR I would grab a hot pair of jeans. (I’m in love with my new Source of Wisdom jeans that I picked up from Torrid).

Of course, flawless make-up and accessories are a must. Sweep your hair into a casual pony tail and… Voila! you have a one-of-a-kind look that shows your team spirit and femininity.

Hopefully that helps!


P.S. I saw a photo of you on your blog and you have NO REASON to worry about being in pictures with “skinnies” lol you’re super cute and I hope you send me a photo of whatever you decide to wear.

    I personally love a woman in tight jeans and heels. Flats can go to. If it's open toed andhas a nice pedicure really sexy. Stop worrying about your size.I don't like being with a toothpick. I love a woman with meat on her as long as she is well groomed.
