WHAT TO WEAR: Southern Style Game Day

Fall is the best season of the year in South Carolina because it’s finally time for the long awaited University of South Carolina football season. Saturdays down south are spent tailgating and cheering on the Carolina Gamecocks, all of course while dressed to impress. A sea of college-aged students dressed in garnet and black is the only sight you want to see on game day. Adding your own personal tweaks to the signature black or garnet dress and cowboy boots duo is the perfect way to stand out from the crowd.

Game day outfits take time and effort to put together. This Fashionista decided to pair a lightweight flowy garnet dress with a black bralette. The loose fit of this dress is ideal to keep this Fashionista cool in the South Carolina heat. The open back of this dress allows for the lace black bralette to be visible and it adds both detail and texture to the outfit. Just these two pieces alone perfectly incorporate the gamecock colors. Sunglasses are essential on game day and these all black sunglasses give this look an edgy feel, while also fitting the color scheme. Her brown cowboy boots add a southern touch to this look and are a staple piece in every Carolina girl’s closet. Walking to and from tailgates and the stadium requires comfortable shoes and cowboy boots are the number one shoe of choice. Her simple black choker and silver bracelets finish off the look and make this outfit appear effortless.

Game days tend to be long days, so an outfit that can last through the heat and endless tailgating is vital. Follow this Fashionista’s lead by choosing an outfit that is minimal and comfortable, yet still makes a fashion statement.
