The new England women’s shirts for Euro 2022 have been announced ahead of the tournament’s start on July 6, and they may be the most elegant we’ve ever seen.
The Lionesses’ simple but meticulously designed home shirt and daring away jersey have been formally revealed ahead of their European campaign this summer.
England opens the tournament against Austria at Old Trafford, followed by games against Northern Ireland and Norway in Group A.
The eye-catching iridescent emblems on the England home kit are the first time they have appeared on an England shirt.
The shirt is inspired by diamonds, which are featured across the whole kit, including the shorts and socks, which the players are said to have mentioned during the design research process.
Inside the collar, the words ‘Send her victorious’ are also displayed, a message for England’s footballing queens in allusion to the line from the national song.
The away uniform has been replaced with a more daring colour, despite the fact that many fans adored the deep red away shirt from the World Cup in 2019.
However, while it is characterised as red, it appears to be more orange, possibly inspired by Dutch head coach Sarina Wiegman.
The Lionesses are among the favourites for glory, and in addition to having home advantage, they will now look the part this summer.
The new kits are only the second collection designed specifically for the women’s England squad, following the 2019 World Cup, which saw the Lionesses dressed in an entirely different appearance from the men’s team.
However, these lovely new tees aren’t only for female fans – they’re also available in men’s and children’s sizes.
And everything is set for what may be another watershed moment for the women’s game, with supporters encouraged to throng to games and express their support for the Lionesses.

The pricing for England Women’s new home and away Nike shirts has been slammed on social media, with supporters upset, especially given the UK’s spiralling living costs.
The Lionesses debuted their new appearance on Wednesday morning, with top-tier jerseys costing £114.95 for either the home or away shirts!
The three-figure number has raised concerns among some on social media, who are fed up with the constant rise in football jersey prices, especially in light of growing household inflation.
