WHAT TO WEAR: Tailgate

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, it is finally tailgating season! For many college students, and most importantly college students who attend PAC 12 schools, (yeah, that’s me) this is the best time of the year. For students attending the University of Oregon, the back to school blues are quickly shut down with the arrival of football season. With a Heisman winning alumni and an unreal team of ducks, Oregon students have the most outstanding school spirit (I’m not bias, I swear). Thousands of people migrate to Eugene to tailgate in the parking lot of Autzen Stadium with friends, family and fellow duck fans. Tailgating at the U of O has become such an event that some outfit choices are forever remembered, and students spend all week choosing an outfit that will encapsulate their love of the ducks. A recent tailgating trend has been homemade lace-up Oregon T-shirts and tank tops or oversized football jerseys being worn as dresses.

Though fall in Oregon can bring any kind of weather, rain or shine duck fans will be at Autzen Stadium ready to yell “OOOOOOOO”. Whether they’re in duck themed ponchos to stay safe from the rain, or obnoxious and oversized green and yellow striped overalls, they are always dressed to impress when it comes to tailgating.

This Fashionista shows just the right amount of school spirit in an oversized grey Oregon T-shirt paired with a trendy denim skirt. For shoes she keeps it casual with a pair of comfortable black Vans to avoid sore feet from the long hours of cheering on the sidelines. She adds a sporty touch to her look with a yellow backpack, keeping her cute while also being able to carry all the game day necessities. She ties her whole look together adding a green bandana around her neck, keeping her look trendy while still showing off her school spirit.  If you’re heading to a party after the game, trade in the sneakers for some heeled booties. You’ll still be sticking to your school spirit while staying cute for a night out!
