Drip Blue At Hughes

Every year, the highly-anticipated football season rolls around. Along with it, students have to figure out what games they’re going to, who they’re going with, and most importantly, what they are wearing. 

For some, football games are just a normal sporting event. For others, it’s a runway. The pressure of a poppin’ outfit is especially present at the annual Holy Bowl football game against Jesuit. 

Not only is Christian Brothers student body present, but also the students from nearby Saint Francis and Jesuit High School. Like they say, “dress for success”, and CB certainly dresses to win. Before this year’s Holy Bowl, the Talon asked several CB students what they’re planning to wear to this year’s rivalry game. 

It is known that red and blue are CB colors while Jesuit’s colors are red and yellow. Thus, CB students tend to wear mostly blue for student spirit at Holy Bowl, while Jesuit’s supporters tend to wear white and yellow. 

“I generally wear a blue top, like a CB jersey, with jeans or shorts to Holy Bowl,” says Maggie Melarkey (‘21)

“I always wear jeans and a CB colored shirt,” Sophie Sidley (‘21) adds. 

These outfit choices are pretty normal for girls in the CB community. However, some girls do make their own CB spirit shirts for rivalry games, finding a way to make their regular spirit shirts into stylish sleeveless or crop tops. 

“I like things that have a unique stylish touch to them,” says Rubi Fernandez (‘21). “Last year, I made one of my CB shirts into a sleeveless top and wore it to Holy Bowl.” 

Fortunately, the dress code for activities like football and basketball games are a little less strict than school, so students are able to express more individuality at these anticipated events. While girls tend to be more bold about their outfits, boys tend to be more low-key fashionistos.

Known CB fashion pioneer Will Tsushinsky (21’) says, “I will be wearing yellow. All yellow. The point of fashion is to have people look at you.”

Some boys take a more understated approach. 

“I think I’m just going to wear a pair of gray shorts and a CB shirt,” says Desmond Greer (21’)

Whether you are dressing to support, stand in, or stand out, Holy Bowl is sure to be exciting. With outfits like these, we are sure to come out with a win. Go CB!
