England’s Euro 2024 Style: The Fashion Squad

The provisional England squad for Euro 2024 was announced this week, and the biggest surprise for England fans was the absence of Marcus Rashford. But while the Manchester United star won’t be heading to Germany for the tournament, he’s still making headlines in a different way. Rashford, along with Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsdale and Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher, is featured in the Marks & Spencer formalwear collection that the team will be wearing off the field this summer.

The Stylish Trio

Rashford, Ramsdale, and Gallagher—each representing different positions on the field—modeled the new collection. It seems these photos were taken before England manager Gareth Southgate revealed his squad list. The collection features trendy items like overshirts, blouson jackets, and straight-leg trousers in stylish shades of cream, beige, and black. There’s also a quarter zip knit sweater, a favorite of managers like Southgate, Mikel Arteta, and Pep Guardiola.

Rashford looks particularly comfortable and happy in the photos. He’s no stranger to the fashion world, having appeared on the cover of Vogue in 2020 and collaborated with Burberry on an ad campaign and youth project in 2021. Last year, he even attended a Louis Vuitton fashion show in Paris.

Fashion Evolution: From Suits to Casual

Until recently, teams at international tournaments usually wore formal suits off the field. For Euro 2020, the England squad sported navy blue suits, while Italy’s team wore collarless jackets designed by Armani. However, ties and blazers are starting to feel outdated. Men’s fashion has shifted towards a more casual look, and sports teams are following this trend. Back in 2018, the German team ditched ties at the World Cup, opting for blazers and sweaters by Hugo Boss instead.

This Year’s Look

This year, England’s off-field outfits continue this casual trend, similar to what they wore at the World Cup 2022. That collection featured navy shorts, casual jackets, and cream knitwear, also from Marks & Spencer. The final 27-man squad for Euro 2024 will be photographed in these new designs, with the photos set to be released on June 10, right before the tournament kicks off.

Get the Look

The collection, which showcases the Three Lions England crest inside jackets and overshirts, is already available for fans to purchase on the Marks & Spencer website. The jackets and trousers are made from performance fabrics for easy movement, aiming at sports fans who look up to professional athletes for style inspiration. Prices range from £40 for a cotton knit T-shirt to £60 for a bomber jacket.

England fans might miss seeing Rashford on the pitch, but they can still catch him looking sharp in these stylish outfits.
