Rina Sawayama just made our 2022 Sporty Spice dreams come true with her latest OOTD.
While every Spice Girls fan probably has their preferred member to play dress-up as, there’s no doubt we all tried to rock Mel C’s sporty chic at some point or another — with varying degrees of success. Well, Rina just proved she can pull off the iconic ’90s athleisure vibe with ease. (You know, just in case her already enviable closet wasn’t already on our rob lists.)
On July 28, the singer took to Twitter to post a photo of her latest look, which featured an England soccer jersey front and center. Rina paired the red Nike shirt, which is the new England Euro 2022 Away kit, with a mid-length denim skirt, knee-high socks, and white sneakers.
As well as another certified look from thee Rina Sawayama, the OOTD is also a show of support for The Lionesses, England’s Women’s team, who are heading to the final of the Euros over the weekend. “Have to be honest I wasn’t interested in football until women’s football but now I’m hooked!!!!! Go Lionesses!” Rina wrote sharing the pic on Instagram. (For anyone in the UK, even the mildest hope that it could be “coming home” is enough to make us want to don a football — or soccer — jersey too!)
“U gotta Hold that Ball”, Rina captioned her photo, obviously in reference to soccer but also as a nod to her latest single “Hold the Girl.” (She released the song on July 27, and it’s all about the power of healing your inner child.) “Hold the Girl” is the latest of three songs she’s already released from her upcoming album, which is also called Hold the Girl and drops in September.
