game day attire

With school around the corner and students slowly streaming back into Athens I am reminded that football season is almost here! And in the south there is only one thing almost as important as winning - what you wear to the game. I thought I'd round some fashion inspiration for looks outside "the hedges":)

August + September:


Let's be real- the heat can be outrageous during the first few home games. The trick is staying cool without looking scantily clad. You'll beat the heat in light colors and lightweight material.

I'd recommend wearing white and rocking red & black accents. And don't forget the most important accessory: sunscreen :) 

October + November:


October is still pretty warm in Georgia so you can get away with shorts (or mini skirt) and a button down. As the weather gets cooler at night this bulldog sweater would be the perfect top.

J.Crew has a cute polka dot sweater that would do the trick for those chillier night games as well. And you can't go wrong with red & black flannel (or gingham), paired with black skinny jeans or a maxi skirt. 

Outdoor Bowl Game:

I hope I'm not jumping the gun, but I think it's safe to say the Dawgs will make it to a bowl game and depending on the venue, it could require extra layers for warmth. I love a chunky knit scarf paired with graphic sweaters.

Cupcakes & Cashmere features a similar look to Blair's on the right or you can try out the complete ensemble. Don't you love how she layers a denim jacket under a colorful peacoat? 

The National Championship: 

An alumni can dream right? And if we make it that far it's class all the way with this red pencil skirt. I'm not sure how many games Taylor and I will make it to, but we are looking forward to tailgating in style in the best college town.

P.S. Check by tomorrow for game day hairstyles!
