Team Togs: Real Madrid CF

Hate them or love them, Real Madrid has cemented its place in history as one of the greatest football teams the game has seen. With its rich history, countless achievements, an impressive alumni of prima donnas, and a large fan base that stretches across the globe - Real truly embodies the spirit of living large. For this edition of Team Togs, we attempt to illustrate a team that has carried luxury in its image for over a hundred years. 

The combination of black and white will always be a classic that can never go wrong. Coco Chanel stood by this philosophy, and her predecessor Karl Lagerfeld understood it as well. The all white ensemble with hints of black has become synonymous with Real, and this look will try to both capture colour coordination and images that come to mind when one thinks of the team. 

Without relying to the tired black bottom and white top, we have chosen a gorgeous white skirt with Hummingbird prints as the perfect accent to an otherwise business look of white on white. For drama and flair - something also associated with Real (mostly the players), we add a black cape with crystal embellishments. The accessories are simple and straight to the point - yet edgy enough to make a statement. 

An off-colour diamond ring and earrings that lacks clarity is clearly the new solitaire and black and white striped platform pumps spells modernity. We finish the look with a classic black box clutch with skull and crown details which is a representation of Real Madrid's close connection with the Spanish royal family.
