Actress Jessica Szohr is showing off her longtime Green Bay Packers pride in a stylish way. The Wisconsin native is one of the faces of the NFL Women's Apparel campaign this year.
Szohr, 29, posed for the campaign wearing the '47 Brand Passblock Sweater - a cream and green pullover with a traditional Packers logo - to represent the team of her home state. It's also her favorite item from the women's apparel line this year.
"It's very fitting and it looks vintage," Szohr told Enstars over the phone the day of the campaign's shoot. "It's different and cool, which is what I really liked about it."
Aside from being a football fan, the Gossip Girl star was also intrigued by the campaign's appeal to a wide range of female sports fans. The collection branches away from typical athletic gear and allows women to be fashionable as they cheer on their team. The affordable line includes a variety of items customized for every NFL team, such as T-shirts, flirty dresses, high heels, underwear and various accessories.
"It was awesome to me that you could wear this line and be fashion-forward and comfortable and feel feminine and sexy while you're just sitting and watching a football game," the Two Night Stand actress said. "It reaches all ages and all different types of sports fans."
With its ample selection, the NFL Women's Apparel also allows fans to bring their own personal style into athletic wear. Szohr, who described her own style as "tomboy, bohemian, chic," noted that incorporating personality into one's wardrobe is necessary.
"I don't think it's very cute when everyone has to be super trendy," she said. "I'm not saying go pick something out of your closet that's totally dated, but I just think that having imagination and bringing your personality into your style is very sexy."
The new apparel is available at NFLShop.com before the new season kicks off on Sept. 4.
