WHAT TO WEAR: Game Day Blues

When you’re a student at UNC-Chapel Hill, you’re taught that classes are always harder than they seem, that basketball is fun even if you hate sports, and that there are two kinds of blue—Carolina Blue and the blue that comes from eight miles down the road and is forbidden anywhere on campus.

You’re also taught that Carolina-Duke game days are sacred and are basically city-wide holidays. So, naturally, the next thing you think of is what you should wear to fully show your school spirit while still looking fabulous, of course.

This Fashionista showed off a game day outfit that consisted of more than the classic Michael Jordan jersey and athletic leggings.

She paired a cute, knit, Carolina blue sweater with a classic pair of dark skinny jeans, booties with a cut-out to show off the feminine blue socks and tied the look together with a chunky plaid scarf to give it a little pop of color. Her marble earrings broke the consistent color theme and added some subtle texture to the look, in addition to her clean and cool silver rings.

Everything about this Fashionista’s look is on-target as far as game day outfits go, but gives the otherwise athletic-wear-based day a fashionable twist. Not to mention she is adorable with her double buns. Choosing to finish off the look with a statement hairstyle like this one is the perfect way to stand out in the stands and cheer on your favorite team on game day.

The next time you’re faced with game day outfit blues, take style cues from this Fashionista and think outside the box. Utilize the pieces in your wardrobe that are representative of your school, but that aren’t just the classic oversize T-shirt and add in subtle accessories that will add that extra element.

As always, stay fashionable and go Heels!
