October 18, 2023
Travis Kelce is opening up about his special relationship with fashion!
The NFL superstar appears to have more in common with his rumored girlfriend, Taylor Swift, than fans imagined, given the duo’s great sense of style. While other celebrities have stylists updating them about the latest trends, the Kansas City Chiefs player is a pro at picking unique designs that flatter his athletic physique.
Travis Kelce Shares How His Love For Fashion Influences His Career
The trending tight-end player recently got candid about his obsession with fashion during an interview with WSJ. The Ohio native revealed his desire to look good was so big it filled a bedroom-sized closet! Picking out clothes is a crucial part of Kelce’s life, even influencing his career as an NFL player.
On game days, the athlete’s preparations are not all about winning but looking his absolute best when walking into the locker room. The 34-year-old stressed that it took at least three hours to find the perfect attire before gracing the venue with his presence.
When asked how he chose the right clothes for his locker room entrance, Kelce confessed, “I kind of just do it off of instinct.” As stated, the NFL star’s fashion tastes caused him to convert a bedroom into his closet. According to the self-described “impulsive shopper,” the massive walk-in wardrobe holds up to 300 sneakers.
During idle moments like watching TV or eating dinner, Kelce revealed that he frequently scrolled through retail sites like Farfetch and Ssense for new merchandise.
Although he did not rock carpet-worthy looks as a child, the Kansas City Chiefs player’s sense of style had been awoken from a young age. “Playing a sport growing up, like I always wanted to wear a headband, I always wanted to have a certain pair of shoes,” the 34-year-old claimed, noting his choices made him feel like “a superhero.”
Naturally, not everyone appreciates Kelce’s bold fashion tastes, especially for a star athlete like him. However, the Eighty-Seven & Running Foundation creator is all about ignoring criticisms. “I’m not going to be offended if somebody says I look like a clown if I got a fun hat on and some wacky jeans,” the Ohio hunk chimed.
“It is what it is, I’m gonna have fun with it,” the eight-time Pro Bowler added. “For the most part, I do it to put a smile on somebody’s face.” The tight end stressed that “Obviously, not every look is for everybody,” but he stood by his fashion choices.
Kelce has flaunted an array of unique styles thanks to his successful career and reflected on how wealth changed his tastes over the years. The 34-year-old confessed: “Money gave me access to certain designers and just certain fabrics that I absolutely love now.”
On the subject of money, the two-time Super Bowl champion revealed he blew part of his first-year salary to buy a pair of size 13 Nike Air Mag sneakers, which were too small but remain a part of his footwear collection.
Recalling the purchase, the Ohio sensation blamed the error in shoe size on a lack of technology. “Earlier on in my career, when they didn’t have all these sneaker apps, it was whatever size I could get in the shoe that I wanted,” the “SNL” guest host lamented.
Travis Kelce & Taylor Swift Held Hands For The First Time In Public
Before opening up about his love for fashion, the tight-end superstar turned heads with his rumored girlfriend, Taylor Swift, in their first public display of affection. Since their speculated romance made waves, the dynamic duo have stayed away from flaunting their perceived romance.
Everything changed this weekend when the pair appeared in New York City for a dinner date at Nobu. The lovebirds looked picture perfect, with the “Cruel Summer” songstress rocking an oversized gray trench coat over a sexy all-black ensemble.
By her side, Kelce showed off his fashion sense in an embroidered cream-colored jacket, brown pants, and white sneakers. The speculated couple completed their attires with a sweet display of love by holding hands and staying glued to each other during their evening affair.
The pair’s outing came amid rumors of the duo’s cohabitation. The grapevines were heavy with news of the entertainers’ search for a house in Kansas City, Missouri. However, a source disputed these claims. While Kelce and Swift may not be ready to move in together, the stars are clearly enjoying their blossoming relationship.
