ROOT FOR YOUR FAVORITE TEAM IN STYLE.
Has there ever been a better time to be a sports fan in Georgia? A bevy of teams and sports makes it easy to find one to root for, not to mention that we’re riding high on two national championships for the Atlanta Braves and the University of Georgia Bulldogs. Upgrade your game day gear for the next season with these special accessories.
Sometimes you want to just be more discreet with your merchandise. If that’s you, try this branded Atlanta Falcons Apple Watch band that you can sport every day in support of the Dirty Birds. Made from water-resistant silicone, it comes in a 42-44mm size with a pin and tuck closure for a snug fit.
The rules about what you can and can’t bring into a sports venue have changed, so always double-check before heading out. Many only accept small, clear handbags now, but that doesn’t mean they have to be clinical. This one from Kelly Wynne features a printed strap and panel in addition to gold hardware for a little shine. The gold and printed chain strap is removable if you prefer to carry your bag under your arm. It’s just the right size for your card case, phone and lipstick to ensure you have the essentials covered for game day.

Finding the right shade of Hawks yellow or Georgia Tech gold can be tricky, but these flats from newly opened Rothy’s in Westside Provisions District might do the trick— and cover both teams in one accessory. Knit from recycled plastic water bottles, it’s a shoe you can feel good about and feel good in. Bonus: They’re 100% machine washable.
Did you know Atlanta United has its own scarf of the month? Your wardrobe will never be boring if you continue to rotate these unique and collectible pieces. The doublesided design gives you twice the fan power when you’re at a game, and you can wear the scarves during the chillier months of play.
There’s no better way to commemorate a national championship than with a celebratory accessory. Smathers & Branson is known for its needlepoint, in particular its belts. The brand also has a University of Georgia Bulldogs National Championship style ($185), so you can sport your favorite team’s colors. The hand-stitched needlepoint sits atop a tanned Italian leather belt and comes in 12 sizes. Finished with a brass buckle, it’s a style you’ll keep forever.
