WHAT TO WEAR: Tailgate Season

Football season is one of my favorites, for sure. I don’t know whether it is because it was always my brother’s favorite to play or what, but I love going to football games! The energy and atmosphere at a game are so intense that it is hard to think people don’t enjoy it. One of my favorite things about my time at college football games is obviously tailgating. I know that makes me sound like a “total girl” in some people’s words, but come on. Hanging out with friends and family, grilling out and playing games, all while getting amped for the game that is to come: what could be better? I mean, a tailgate is kind of like the calm before the storm. And while a lot of people don’t care about what they wear to the game, I attempt to look stylish and comfortable at the same time for the most part. But let’s be honest, a lot of time I do go in a sweatshirt and jeans.

That is not the case for this Fashionista. With our homecoming game just around the corner I figured this was the perfect outfit to give inspiration to everyone attending this game and every other game as well. Her distressed black jeans and oversized plaid button-down paired perfectly with her white high-top Converse and bondage bandeau. A good trick for finding an oversized flannel is shopping in the mens department of your favorite store. In my personal opinion, this is the best way to get a shirt that will be perfectly oversized.

The colors of the outfit show ones school spirit without going overboard with the Illinois State University apparel. She also chose to accessorized her outfit with some gold and silver bracelets and a simple necklace. The understated necklace adds just enough to the outfit without being too much.
