Kristin Juszczyk is married to San Francisco 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk, but it's clear she’s a fan of the romance between Taylor Swift and Kansas City Chiefs tight end, Travis Kelce.

Swift and Brittany Mahomes, wife of Kansas City player Patrick Mahomes, sported matching red puffer coats that quickly went viral at the January 13 game between Kansas City and the Miami Dolphins. Swift's featured Kelce’s name and number, 87, while Mahomes’ had those of her husband’s. The jackets were both made and designed by Juszczyk.

Swift and Mahomes, who have become fast friends since Swift’s relationship with Kelce was confirmed in the fall, donned their matching jackets while rooting for the home team. From the player’s box, Mahomes posted a series of photos of the women posing and showing them off. “Twinning & Winning!” Mahomes wrote. Lyndsay Bell, who is married to Kansas City tight end Blake Bell, was also part of the fun.

Kyle Juszczyk, meanwhile, wanted the world to know exactly who made them: his wife Kristin. Under an X post that showed Swift entering the stadium, Juszczyk proudly commented: “Rocking the jacket made by Kristin Juszczyk!!” In another post, he wrote of his wife, “She’s an absolute star!” He didn't stop there, reposting several story after story about Swift's viral jacket. 

Swift isn’t the only celebrity Juszczyk has designed for. She also fashioned a custom Detroit Lions coat for Swift’s ex, actor Taylor Lautner, who wore it while cheering for the Lions during a recent game. On Instagram, Juszczyk thanked FedEx for getting it to him on time.

Swift’s style continues to trend every time she leaves the house. A pair of $695 Area denim shorts she wore to an October game sold out the next day, as did a pair of the brand’s jeans earlier in the year.
