Super Fan Fashion
 Superbowl XLIX was a sea of bright green and navy with legions of Seahawks fans greatly outnumbering those of us in Phoenix from New England. I hate that shade of green and only like to see navy paired with red and white, like our country’s flag and as worn by Patriot Nation. Game day fan style tends to be kitschy, sporting your teams colors in inventive ways that pay homage and add some whimsical fun. Many Pats fans donned “statement” T-shirts that took the air out of the ridiculous accusations leveled at us by, what felt like, the rest of the country. Superstition always plays a big role as well, with fans wearing their lucky shirt or hat in just a certain way so as not to tempt fate. In a sea of team jerseys and logo’d apparel, nothing could deflate how these super bowl fans expressed their love of team via their unique game day looks…here a few who caught my eye.

Aria Trattoria, North End — One of my absolute favorite spots for dinner, drinks, more drinks and snacks… everything! And yes, this is my second and last North End restaurant on the top five list. I would add more, but I don’t want you all to think I’m afraid to leave my neighborhood.

Aria

Massimo Tiberi has hit it out of the park with Aria. Named after his daughter, the best part of the menu is Tiberi’s love for having pasta fit into every meal. I agree with Mass, you must squeeze the pasta in somewhere. In fact, a small bowl of homemade bolognese is what makes your night at Aria complete. And the fact that you can order a small bowl of pasta in between your starter and main dish is, in my opinion, righteous. Yeah, I said righteous.

Last year, GQ magazine gave Boston the scarlet letter of Worst Dressed City in the U.S. Here at Styleboson, we were beyond moderately offended by being described as “undergraduate hoodie monsters” dressing like “proprietors of his or her very own meth lab” at “the biggest frat party on Lansdowne.” Ouch, that came out of left field. We are ok with the obnoxious sports fan label but frat bro? Oh no they didn’t.
