How Disney Star China Anne Mcclain Shows Her Team Spirit(Source: NFL)Fashion-forward football ensembles aren't just for Gossip Girl stars (and Stylebistro editors). In fact, there's an entire sports-addicted demographic of ladies that often gets overlooked. Luckily, China Anne McClain is paving the way for young adults to show off their team spirit in style. The actress, known for her lead role on Disney series A.N.T. Farm and in the network's film How to Build a Better Boy, has been drafted by the NFL to star in its latest apparel campaign for tweens and juniors. We got the scoop on the starlet's new gig as well as her style on and off set. 

How would you describe your personal style? "I would describe my main style as sort of a laid-back grunge, but it usually changes depending on my mood."

How Disney Star China Anne Mcclain Shows Her Team Spirit(Source: Disney Channel)How does your wardrobe compare to your character's on A.N.T. Farm? "My style is totally different than Chyna Parks. She likes to wear lots of colors and bling, and I'm more of a neutral person when it comes to those things."

How do you like to dress up for football games? "Showing your NFL fandom goes beyond game-day. With NFL Tweens/Juniors apparel, you can integrate pieces into your everyday wardrobe—for instance, with either a skirt and blazer or with skinny jeans and flats for a more relaxed look. Face paint is another fun way of showing your fandom."

Do you prefer going to the games or watching from home? "I prefer watching from home—with my family. But I went to a football game with the cast of How To Build A Better Boy once and that was super fun as well."

"I went to the Teen Vogue Young Hollywood party this year and I wore a Rose Hesan dress with Olivia Hines shoes. I loved that outfit!"

Who are your style icons? "I love Rihanna's tomboy/grungy style. She knows how to mix and match clothing so that everything she wears looks really cool, and I love and respect that."
