When it comes to following the world's most popular sport, FIFA 2022 has been one of the best years ever. With a record-breaking number of goals and some incredible new kits (we're looking at you, Argentina), there are plenty of style moments that have already made their mark on the game. Here are our favorites:
Messi has had a long career in FIFA, and his style has evolved over the years. He's known for combining traditional looks with modern touches, like wearing a suit and tie to the World Cup final or switching from casual clothes on off days to full kit during matches. He's also been the face of FIFA 2022 since it was released in 2022.
In addition to being an excellent player on the field, Messi is also known for his off-field style (or "off-pitch" as it's called in football). His fashion sense has caught people's attention since he started playing with FC Barcelona when he was just 15 years old—he looked like he could have walked straight out of one of their ad campaigns!
Morocco vs. Iran
Morocco vs. Iran
Morocco's red and green kit is inspired by the country's national flag, which features a green star and crescent on a red background. Iran's red, white and blue kit is inspired by their own national flag but with some added flair—the white jerseys feature a red collar and cuffs to match those of Morocco's top.
Gregg Berhalter’s Jordan collection
Gregg Berhalter's Jordan collection is inspired by the US national team's colors. The collection is made up of red, white and blue, but also features a number of other colors that represent different moments in American history. The designs are inspired by historical photos of Berhalter as well as his family members and friends.
The collection was designed by Jordan Brand and Nike to commemorate Berhalter’s first year as manager of the USMNT — both companies have deep ties to soccer culture (and each other), so it makes sense that they would partner on such an exciting project for fans around the world!
The supreme tailoring of Japan head coach Hajime Moriyasu
The supreme tailoring of Japan head coach Hajime Moriyasu is a navy two-button suit with a white shirt and red tie. The suit is made by the Japanese brand, Kiton. It's made from wool, and it was made in Italy.
It's got a slim fit, which shows off his slight frame while still being able to move freely on the pitch (or in this case, around Gaudi's Sagrada Familia).
Brazil’s linen suiting moment
Brazil's linen suiting moment
Brazil’s white linen suits were a cool, fresh take on the traditional look. The team wore the suits for the first time in a friendly against Argentina—and it was inspired by the beach. Before you dismiss this as an obvious move, know that there's more than just beautiful scenery to be found in Brazil: there are also tons of local fabrics used by designers like Thom Browne and Alexander McQueen at fashion week every year. In fact, we're still waiting for our own South American neighbor Uruguay to get involved with some linen suiting action!
Weston McKennie goes red white and blue up top
Weston McKennie is a German-American soccer player who plays for the United States men's national team and Bundesliga club Schalke 04. He is also the first player born in the 2000s to make an appearance at a World Cup, having made his debut against Portugal at Russia 2018 (he played two games). The midfielder has been active in American youth football since 2015 and moved from FC Dallas to German side Schalke 04 in January 2018.
McKennie was one of three Americans chosen for this year's edition of FIFA 2022 by EA Sports alongside Christian Pulisic and Bobby Wood. In the game, he wears No 23 but you can change that!
The Danish all-black kits
The Danish national team has worn all-black kits since the 1930s, and in fact, it was the first national team to do so. The nickname "The Black Vikings" dates back to this time period as well. While some people might see these black kits as a boring choice for FIFA 2022, we think they're perfect for this squad.
The Danish Football Association says that the all-black kit is meant to be a symbol of unity: "[the kit] helps bond players from different clubs together into one unit." This makes sense given how many professional players in Denmark play for another country's club team—and often wear different jerseys when they do so!
If there is one thing we have learned from the World Cup it's that soccer can be just as stylish as any other sport.
In the last few years, we have seen a lot of fashion moments in soccer. The 2018 World Cup was no exception. If there is one thing we have learned from the World Cup it's that soccer can be just as stylish as any other sport.
One of the best-dressed on the pitch was Argentina's Lionel Messi who wore a pair of navy pants with a white jacket and black shirt for his team's match against Morocco. He also sported some stylish sunglasses with aviator frames to complete his outfit—and he looked truly amazing! Also in this category are Japan head coach Hajime Moriyasu and Brazil midfielder Gabriel Jesus who both wore linen suiting while playing at this year's tournament. And let us not forget Weston McKennie who went red white and blue up top during their game against South Korea (he has since changed).
If there is one thing we have learned from the World Cup it’s that soccer can be just as stylish as any other sport. The players are already known for their fashion sense, and now you can add coaches to that list as well. It's time to start paying attention to what your favorite team wears on and off the field because with each new game they play, they will only get better looking!
