There's a common saying amongst professional football players: "Look good, feel good. Feel good, play good." Grammatically flawed phrasing aside, it's no wonder that when the Redskins hit the road they usually want to look their best. While tough and physical on the field, "Skins Style" is an opportunity for players to show off their smooth and chic, their bold and subtle, their colorful and fashionable other half.
Safety D.J. Swearinger whole-heartedly agrees with the above quote. His nickname is "Swag" on the field, but it's clear he takes that mentality to his wardrobe, where he has plenty of options for colorful clothing and eye-popping jewelry. As the vocal leader on the field and the starting free safety for a revamped defense, he is happy to set the sartorial tone for the team as well. Here's how he describes his first dramatic look of the season.

General Style: "You look good, you feel good. You feel good, you play good. You play good, they pay good. This is my overall look on it. So I try to look good wherever I go."
Particular Look:"I wanted to do the all-black but I didn't want to go all black with it, so I threw on the tan blazer and tan [shoes]."
