Game Day Outfit Ideas

Friday, August 7, 2015

If I had to pick the thing that I'm most excited about college for, it would without a doubt be the football games. I never really showed much school spirit while I was in high school, and in my four years actually only attended one football game. However, I was always ready to cheer my heart out for NFL games on TV (How about them cowboys, anyone?). I've seen a few college football games on TV and even attended one, and I just believe that there is such a different atmosphere and feeling of excitement between college and high school football. Bottom line, I'm pumped to get to spend my Fridays and Saturdays yelling chants and singing fight songs with my fellow students (and it'll even be for a team that is well-known for how good they are - a major plus). And I'm also thrilled to get the chance to try out new outfits that I had in mind! Read on for some game day outfit ideas for all types of weather...

  • It's super hot out...
I actually love when it's hot on a game day, simply because there's so many outfit options to choose from. To start, you can never go wrong with a t-shirt that has your school logo and/or color(s) on it with a nice pair of patterned or colored shorts. I personally love the logo t-shirt with bright colored shorts look! But dresses and rompers are also a major plus to this kind of weather when you're feeling a bit more dressy; a nice plain color with some coordinating colored jewelry can go a long way. Statement necklaces really complete a look if it's a little plain, so remember those when you're feeling like you need a real pop of color! Finally, comfy flats are obviously your best bet in this type of weather.
  • It's starting to get a bit chilly...
Just so that we all have a general definition of the time of year I'm getting at here, we'll say deep fall when the leaves have fallen and the temperature is slowly making it's way down from maybe 60ish degrees. I recommend breaking out the leggings and cute little booties for this type of weather since it's not really cold enough for jeans or furry boots just yet. Throw on an over-sized t-shirt with your school's color(s) and/or logo on it and add a thin scarf or statement necklace to finish off your look. If you think you can handle the chill, feel free to switch it up by wearing a long-sleeved dress, maxi dress or skirt - you can just throw on a cardigan if you think you'll get a bit cold!
  • OK, now it's freezing...
Just because it's 30 degrees (or maybe even less depending on where you live) outside now doesn't mean you can't still look cute for that game! To start, you're obviously going to need some comfy jeans and a pair of snugly boots. You can even add leg warmers for an extra touch of color and comfort if you'd like also! Now it's time to bring out those over-sized sweaters and hoodies - they're your best bet to staying warm. If you need a little extra warmth, feel free to throw on a puffy vest or jacket over that layer. Finally, nothing completes an outfit like the accessories, and during this type of weather they are really going to be your best friend! Fuzzy or woolly scarves and hats with your school logo and/or colors add major spirit and color to your outfit, all while keeping you cozy.

What does your favorite game-day outfit consist of? Can't wait for college football to start!
