It’s Football Season: Game Day Style

As much as I ADORE the summertime, and everything that comes with it, I always find myself craving cooler weather come September.  After months of hot and humid days, spending endless hours at the pool or lake, and late summer nights filled with friends and fun, relaxing fall afternoons complete with a mug of hot peppermint tea and a warm fleece blanket seem so appealing.

The Fall season means cozy scarves, pumpkin muffins, and of course, football season!  Although I will admit, basketball is my sport of choice, there’s something about a crisp Saturday afternoon of tailgating and cheering on your team that’s hard to beat.  Be comfy and cute at your next tailgate with these fall fashion trends.

1. Chunky sweaters.  Oversized knit sweaters are certainly a fall wardrobe staple, but instead of spending Friday’s paycheck on a new one, try raiding your boyfriend’s closet.  Bonus points if he has one in your team’s colors!  Roll up the sleeves, and add a neutral belt to give it more shape.  Pair with skinny jeans and your favorite boots, and you have yourself an effortlessly chic tailgating outfit!

2.  Scarves, scarves, scarves.  They’re easily my favorite fall fashion and go-to accessories on game days.  When the weather gets cold, the last thing I want to wear to a nighttime football game is a leg-barring dress or skirt.  Instead, I dress in dark jeans and warm layers, but add a bright blue scarf for a pop of my team’s color.  Change it up by tying your scarf in a braid or cute knot.  Visit tiemyscarf.com for dozens of tutorials on how to tie yours!

3.  Boot socks.  I think we can all agree that a great pair of brown or black leather boots can complete any fall look.  My fall class uniform consists of black leggings, warm sweatshirts, and my favorite brown riding boots.  This season, I’m excited to add some fun tall socks with my boots, to add a little interest to my look.  Find a pair with your team logo on it and be the cutest girl in the stadium!
