College football season is quickly approaching, and along with the tailgates, face paint, roaring crowd, and bright lights comes the battle-worn game gear of the tried and true fans. Your game day shirt can lose its shape and wash out quickly due to extreme use, though, and I’m sure that Florida Gators fanny pack you’ve been toting around for 7 years isn’t exactly turning any heads. Learn how to deck out in style with our quick rundown of accessories and fashions that work wonders during the college football season.
The first rule – the wow factor comes with accessories. If you’re at a ‘Noles game, everyone will be adorned in garnet and gold. A simple tee isn’t going to make you stand out. Learn to show off your spirit in unconventional ways. One out-of-the-box accessory that’s sure to make an impression is a fashionable gameday wristlet. Available with logos of several teams, including the Seminoles and the Gators, a wristlet like this is fabulously functional and flaunts your spirit in a truly chic manner.
Another terrific way to show off your school pride is with footwear, another non-traditional game day garment. While logo-emblazoned tennis shoes might skew more toward “laughable,” you can’t go wrong with a strong statement like game day boots. You read that correctly – step out and show your passion with high quality distressed leather boots. Again, these are available for a myriad of regional teams, including our favorites, the Seminoles (with black boots) and the Gators (with brown boots).
Of course, you can’t go wrong with a game day shirt to rock your favorite team. Just be sure to step up your game from the traditional bland, cardboard-cutout team name tee. When going with a t-shirt, pick something with a classier, distressed logo that feels more like a graphic tee (this vintage Florida state shirt, for example). Or, ditch the tee altogether and go professional with a sports-ready button down that’s durable and comfortable but exudes class. Whatever you go with, remember that gameday is no excuse to dull down your sense of fashion.
