Root for your country in style! #WorldCup2014

Woohoo! The end of the World Cup 2014 draws nearer and nearer... The suspense is killing me! There are only four countries left (Argentina, Netherlands, Germany and Brazil) and this Sunday, we will know who the new World Champion will be! As a proud Dutchie, I'm obviously very happy with the achievements of the Dutch football team so far. Let's see if they can win that cup! Usually I'm not that into football but I've noticed that a lot of women that don't watch football on a regular basis, all unite to join and watch the championship festivities I'm one of them. And to those women I would like to say: why not root for your country in style?

I've made some collages inspired by the 4 finalists national colours and although the Dutch flag is red, white and blue, ORANGE is our national colour when it comes to celebration! I could bother you by telling you why and give you a short history lesson on that but nah, let's just stick to the fashion ;)

So starting with my own country of course ;), here's some style inspiration!

World Cup style Netherlands

I guess it's fair to say that Orange really IS the new black! It's a great and vibrant color for summer and instantly spices up and outfit! The only thing is that it's very hard to pull off orange in the Netherlands, because people immediately link it to national festivities, lol.

World Cup fashion Brazil

Yellow and green, fun and fresh are the first things that come to mind. And that yellow jumpsuit? Drooling! As I'm originally from Surinam, Brazil is a neighbouring country of mine, so yeah, if the Dutchies don't win, they'll be my new fave ;)


World Cup Style Germany

Hmm, red, yellow and black. Not my most favorite color combinations. Apart from red lipstick, I'm not that fond of red anyway, so don't take it personal ;) On the other hand, Germany has a great football team, and it would be great if the World Cup finale would be Netherlands vs. Germany (not out of rivalry, just for fun).

World Cup style Argentina

Now this is a tricky one... Not because of the colors because they match perfectly but because of another reason... Let me explain: this Wednesday, the Netherlands will be playing against Argentina. It just so happens to be that our queen Màxima is Argentinian and our king Alexander is Dutch of course, you get where I'm going? Well, let's hope that both come out of this unharmed :)

And how about you? Who are you rooting for?
