Sure, you could drop $50 on a game-day sweatshirt— but wouldn't you rather save that cash for something a little more stylish?
And while we never expected to recommend Forever 21 as a destination for a Chicago souvenir, the chain store does stock a pretty viable option for showcasing your Chicago pride whether or not you're at a game.
At just $22.80, this pullover is an absolute steal, especially when you consider the usual prices of comfy sweatshirts. What's even better about this option is that you'll actually be on trend in it: From the retro hoodless to the relaxed yet still feminine fit, we think it's a much more fashionable alternative to the big, baggy sweatshirts you'll find at most other places.
And yes, we realize Da Bears won't be playing for a while, but that doesn't mean you can't don this sweatshirt around town. We like it paired with denim shorts, flat sandals and oversized sunglasses.
