With football season in full swing, I’m here to share with you how to stay comfortable, cozy, and current on game day. Showing team spirit doesn't have to be literal - have fun with your game day outfits, and invest in items that can be worn long after the very last championship game has been played .
To help get you started, I’ve broken down my top 5 game day fashion tips to help get your wardrobe-wheels spinning.
Style Tip #1: If your team rocks the red on the field, you're in luck - this color is everywhere this season, and won't be hard for you to stock up on game day pieces! Stay on-trend with a bell sleeve or an off-the-shoulder blouse. Accessorize with a comfy stacked heel sandal or bootie (a.k.a. the new wedge). To satisfy those new-"clear bag" stadium policies, invest in a cute, clear handbag. Etsy is an amazing resource for unique and practical finds. Get the look with Blank Denim Jeans (1), Wayf blouse (2), Trina Turk earrings (3), BAUBLEBAR cuff (4), Steve Madden sandals (5), and a clear purse from Etsy (5).
Style Tip #2: Cozy up on game day in a tailored knit dress that can be perfectly paired with either a bootie or a tall Equestrian style boot. For day to night games, try a “moto” style jacket or a vest as a chic and easy layering piece for after the sun goes down. Get the look with a Zara faux fur vest (1), Calvin Klein Dress (2), Panacea cuff (3), Eddie Borgo earrings (4), Rebecca Minkoff cross body purse (5), and rag & bone booties (6).
Style Tip #3: A trendy choker is a perfect of-the-moment accessory that you can wear long after football season is over. Skip the infinity scarf and instead do something that's a bit more unique. And let’s not forget about the other must-have item this fall: the stylish sneaker! From slip-ons to lace ups, these fashionable shoes make walking across campus easy. Get the look with this BB Dakota Vegan Leather Jacket (1), Rachel Parcell Dress (2), Vanessa Mooney Choker (3), Golden Goose sneakers (4), Prada bag (5), and Kenneth Jay Lane earrings (6).
Style Tip #4: Neutral lovers, rejoice: Camel is the perfect complement to a wide variety of team colors, including red, orange, and purple. Whether a paired with a sweater dress, a pair of jeans and a leather jacket, or even shorts and a button down, camel adds the perfect neutralizer to offset bold game day color.

Style Tip #5: Select a punchy sweater in your team colors to warm up winter white jeans. Complete the look with neutral flats or booties, creating a streamlined and flattering look. For cooler days, a fur or faux fur vest is a great way to cozy-up your game day look.
