#CFStyleMadness—Get Ready to Take Part in the Ultimate Fashion Tournament

It’s safe to say that you’ve heard of March Madness if you are in college and/or use the internet—it’s pretty much all we’ve been hearing about the past few weeks. Competition, ranks, upsets; sounds more like an episode recap of The Bachelor than sports to us…

If you picked North Carolina to go all the way simply because you like Tar Heel Blue, no judgment. We’re in the same boat here at CFHQ. When we began talking about this tournament, it took us approximately 45 minutes of Googling, cautiously navigating sports websites, and texting our dads just to figure out the March Madness bracket system.

Luckily, we conquered it in the best way possible, and came up with a plan to get involved in a way that involves zero athleticism or knowledge of sports. Enter: the #CFStyleMadness challenge.

Starting with Selection Sunday, we will post a challenge on the @cfashionista Instagram to correspond with each round of the NCAA tournament. To participate, follow each round of the challenge, head to our Instagram page, and check out the challenge. Post a look of your own to Instagram, tag @cfashionista, and use the hashtag #CFStyleMadness. The person with the most likes on their photo at the end of the challenge will win a prize, and even have a chance to be featured in Who What Wear’s reader roundup at the end of April! (Score!)

Turn your college gear into a stylish look, show off your #OOTD, or take on a trend that intimidates you. However you choose to participate, we want to see what you’ve got! Check out the list below for all the challenges we have in store:
