Taylor Swift’s game-day fashion may be the talk of the town, but her rumored beau‘s everyday looks are just as worthy of highlighting. When NFL star Travis Kelce isn’t in his Kansas City Chiefs uniform, he’s got quite the personal style. Known as one of the most stylish guys in the NFL, the tight end is always dressed to impress, whether he’s posing for photos at a star-studded event or strolling into a sports venue.
“The football world is starting to kind of come around to being that fashion-forward mentality.”
In fact, he’s previously compared the latter occasion — getting off the plane or bus and walking into a team facility — to a red carpet in itself. “I think it’s a little bit more of a red carpet on the week-to-week and regular-season games in the NFL,” he said in a 2021 interview with Complex, explaining the rise of NFL style compared to that of the NBA. “Without a doubt, I think the football world is starting to kind of come around to being that fashion-forward mentality.”
Kelce’s version of “red carpet” and street style looks range from deconstructed suiting to unexpected knitwear, often paired with cool kicks. (His footwear collection reportedly consists of around 300 sneakers.) Most recently, on Sept. 30, the day before the Chiefs-Jets game, he was spotted in New York City in black pinstripe trousers, an appropriate “New York New York” hat, and a Vetements tee saying “I’m not doing sh*t today.” Earlier that day, he was seen wearing a plaid Lu’u Dan suit with frayed edges, holding sleek Louis Vuitton luggage.
For more formal events like award shows and TV appearances, Kelce’s chosen smart suiting that still felt true to his casual style. While he revealed to Complex that he didn’t have a stylist, the athlete seems to collaborate with a few for bigger events. At the 2023 ESPYs in July, he wore an oversize cream blazer with wide-legged black pants and dress shoes, while he donned a double-breasted Dior ensemble for his “Saturday Night Live” debut in March.
