Wearing an outfit that shows school pride but is stylish is often a difficult balance to find. You want to look cute, but still sport an outfit that shows you want to support your team. Of course, there’s always the age-old option of simply wearing your school’s colors, but that’s a little boring, right? When you find some cute accessories that show your school spirit and pair them with stylish pieces that are already in your closet, then you have the perfect outfit for a home game or pep rally.

This Fashionista did exactly that. Pairing everyday staples like a white skater skirt, chambray button-down and Converse (a must-have for any college student) with some more school spirit-focused accessories created a perfect balance of a chic outfit with school pride without it looking like this Fashionista just raided the campus store.

Try looking online (Etsy is always a great option!) to find unique pieces that reflect your school spirit so you can stylishly add them into your everyday wardrobe. This way, you can easily create a look that says you support your school and also have great, unique taste. Fashion (even game day fashion), like everything, is all about balance. If you think it isn’t possible, just take another look of this Gator Fashionista’s outfit. Even if supporting your school’s team at the big game isn’t your thing, you can’t deny a cute outfit, right?

How To: Find an Etsy shop that makes a cute and unique accessory that shows your school spirit and then experiment with different ways to work it into your outfits!
