5 Accessories Every Football-Crazed Woman Needs

December 08, 2016

Football season is in full swing, and we couldn't be happier! But even though big, old jerseys + foam fingers are appropriate football game-day attire for the guys, us ladies are occasionally looking for a something a bit more fashionable to sport on game day, right? 

Introducing The Army vs. Navy Collection from R. Riveter! The Army/Navy College Football Game is an annual, epic battle between the USMA (Army) Black Knights and the USNA (Navy) Midshipmen. As these two teams take to the field in the most traditional and enduring rivalry in college football, you'll be sure to score a few extra points with any of these noteworthy accessories!


Why do we love this scarf for football season? For starters, it comes in NAVY in support of our Navy Midshipmen and OLIVE for our Army Black Knights! It's also stylish, cozy and oh, so warm! It's perfect for a head-turning entrance into any party, staying toasty while tailgating OR cheering on your team from the bleachers! Oh! We can't forget the hidden pocket! It's the perfect way to keep your cel phone & keys safe and sound as you jump up and town! TOUCHDOWN

2. Faribault American Flag Wool Throw 

Let's talk about wool. It's soft. It's beautiful. It's convenient. It's... the perfect addition to your Game Day ensemble! Use it as a shawl. Use it as a stylish seat cushion. Cover up with friends for a great photo op! Wave it as your favorite player dives into the end zone! The possibilities are endless! There is one thing we know for certain: the deep, bold colors and vivid American Flag pattern on this beauty will be sure to let everyone know what team you're on: TEAM AMERICA!

{Available in the traditional American Flag Pattern + The Betsy Ross Pattern}


Football tends to bring out the tomboy in us all, but that's no excuse to leave the house without our statement jewelry piece! This bracelet was handcrafted, by a Military Spouse, as a reminder to avoid getting caught up in changing things you cannot: Like the outcome of a football game! (Come to think of it... does this come in men's sizes, too? They're going to need some serious peaceful thoughts if this game doesn't go the way they want it to!)

4. The R. Riveter Signature Black Patton

The Black Signature Patton is the perfect companion for showing The Black Knights your undying support this Saturday! In reality, black goes with anything and any team! The thing we really love about this bag, is its cross body style! It allows you to keep your precious belongings safe as your explore the stadium and tailgate in the parking lot! 

5. R. Riveter Signature Denim Patton

Mrs. Patton made this list twice, so I guess you could call her our Army/Navy MVP! Our Signature Denim Patton was designed using Cone Denim + inspired by the WWII Navy Dungaree Uniform! We dare you to find a bag more fitting for this Midshipmen game! (The sailors...er... players on the field will notice... we promise!)
