Whether you’re a football fan or not, I think we can all agree, that tailgating is one of the best parts about fall. I grew up going to New England Patriots games since I was a little kid (when the Patriots weren’t so good + the stadium wasn’t quite as pretty), so this time of year always excites me. Pretty sure between my dad and two brothers, I didn’t have a choice about whether I was going to be a football fan or not 😉 . In college, I was on the sidelines as a cheerleader, so I was never able to tailgate or put together much of a game day outfit. My biggest decision was always which bow to put in my hair or what lip color to rock that game.
One thing I’ve realized over the past few years is just how different game day style is depending on which college you go to and where your college is located. At the University of Maine where I went to college, game day attire was always very casual since we were usually trying to keep from freezing our bums off. Not joking, there was a game my freshman year that was a full out blizzard (we were cheerleading in Ugg boots + Hunter boots). From what I’ve seen, game day style in the South looks much different than the East Coast and the Northern states. Girls in the south tend to get a little bit more dressed up than those in the Northeast, while those of us in the Northeast tend to rock cozy-chic styles. No matter your style, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite game day outfits to give you inspiration for your next football game. Maybe try out a different look! PS. I just discovered a few new websites to buy game day clothing that I linked at the bottom of this blog post!
