Fashion for Your Inner-Soccer Player
Wamaviangirl can't tell you how to score a goal, but she can tell you how to score your soccer-loving crush.—Sparkitors
Okay, so here's the deal: you've got zero athletic ability, but you're dying to impress that really cute foreign exchange student—you know, the one who carries around a soccer ball and wears cleats to class? Well I'm here to help: this handy-dandy five-step guide will have you looking like a real soccer player in no time!
Tip #1: Put on some shorts, a tee shirt and knee-high socks. Then, go sit in a tanning bed for an hour. When you come out, you'll have tan lines that scream "I love soccer!" and you'll be glowing with that I've-been running-around-in-my-uniform-and-shin-guards-for-months look that makes soccer-lovers drool.
Tip #2: Bash your knees and shins into a tree.Or, better yet, get your younger brother to kick them for you
(make sure he's wearing either cleats or steel-toed shoes). This will give you rough-and-tumble "badges of honor;" no real soccer player would be caught dead without bruises on his/her knees and shins.
Tip #3: Wear athletic shorts (with the waistband rolled up once or twice) and a hoodie from September till May. Sneakers are a fashionable choice to complete this outfit, as are rubber flip-flops paired your knee-high socks. If you're a girl, put your hair into a ponytail, then muss it up until you have pieces falling out all over—the perfect "I just finished a really intense scrimmage" hairdo.
Tip #4: Rub mud and dirt into your knees and elbows, and leave muddy handprints on your shirts and shirt. Keep a refillable water bottle by your side at all times. Post pictures of your various brother-induced bruises on Facebook, and caption them as "Don't know which game this came from, but we probably won," or "That slide tackle was rough!"
Tip #5 : Do NOT, under any circumstances, challenge your crush to a game or friendly scrimmage. You will get your butt kicked, someone will inevitably get it on video, and your whole makeover will be for naught.
