Game Day Looks Inspired by Our Favorite Southern Living Dress
One dress, so many possibilities.
It may still be (very) warm outside, but the calendar doesn’t lie – football season is officially in full swing. In the South, game days are what autumn is all about: fight songs, marching bands, in-state rivalries, and, most of all, game day attire. This football season, we’re here to help make the latter part of your Saturdays a little easier. Here at Southern Living, we’ve teamed up with Blithe to bring you one classic dress that can be easily styled for several Southern schools. So whether you’re a gator, a wildcat, or something in between, we’re here to help ensure that you (and your mini-me, too!) are the most stylish fan on the sidelines.
If you're a die-hard War Eagle, this is the perfect way to style our new dress. A pair of bright orange earrings are sure to stand out against the dress's blue gingham print, and the entire look is tied together perfectly by a pair of fun, suede flats. Throw on a chic blazer on chillier days and you're ready for a great Saturday at Johnson-Hare Stadium!
If the Wildcats are your team, we've got you covered for a Saturday in beautiful Lexington. Since a deep royal blue is all you need to show your spirit, spruce up our dress with a pair of fun tassel earrings, a striped scarf, and a trusty canvas tote and you've got all the bases covered. Since game days typically require quite a bit of walking, finish off your look with a pair of comfy flats.
You'll be more than ready to shout "Hotty Toddy!" from the stands with this Ole Miss-inspired look. The blue gingham looks perfect paired with red accessories such as a crossbody bag and bandana (which you can find at just about any dollar store!), and a cute pair of striped wedges help you master the "mixing patterns" trend. As game day goes on and the evening cools off, throw on a cute sweater and you'll be ready to cheer on the Rebels all night long.
Fear not, Gator fans - we've got y'all covered, too. Even in the autumn months you can expect some unseasonably warm temperatures in Gainesville, so our sleeveless dress is perfect for Saturdays at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Trendy orange tassel jewelry pops against the blue gingham print, and is complimented perfectly by a Gator logo scarf. Choosing a tee to wear over the dress is a great way to modernize the look (and help you get away with outfit repeating!), and a printed pair of flats will help you survive a long day of cheering on your feet!
We know lots of Southern girls learn the art of tailgating at a young age, so we've also created a similar dress for the littlest fans. With the help of the Stella Dress, she's sure to be the cutest cheerleader at the stadium!
