Gameday Gear

Saturdays around Columbia, MO are filled with tailgating, school sprit, and football. And this past Saturday we observed the overwhelmingly dull attire of Mizzou’s biggest fans. People tend to stick to thier comfort zone and don’t spice things up for gameday but, we are going to fix those football fashion flops!

Time to get rid of the bright gold, oversized sweatshirt…

and time to become a football fashionista!

We are here to give you ideas on how to incorporate falls latest trends into your gameday attire. First, while the weather is still warm we suggest a fun flowy top like this one from Anthropologie.

Find a fun top in your school colors and pair that with some skinny jeans, or if you are feeling like a true fashionista, pair it with some high-waisted jeans or black pants to bring out the 70s trend, which is going to be huge this fall.

As the weather gets colder, we are tempted to just keep layering on our school sweatshirts to make tailgating and the games more bearable. However, there are plenty of options to keep you warm and spirited. Might we suggest this super-cute 1960s inspired tweed jacket?

Layer it over a simple black v-neck, or cardigan if its really cold. Throw on some chunky jewelry to round out your vintage look.

Feeling edgier? Turn heads at the game in this fabulous motorcycle jacket from Target.

Pair that with a t-shirt (in your fave school colors), skinny jeans, and your favorite black boots and you are set for a cold November game!

Now you know how to avoid those fashion flops at the game and become a football fashionista!
