WHAT TO WEAR: Tailgating

Going back to school goes hand-in-hand with the greatest time of the year: football season. Here in Columbus we take our football very seriously. We are the undisputed national champions after all. There’s no feeling quite like piling into Ohio Stadium with thousands of other Buckeyes and cheering on THE greatest team in the country. However, the excitement of crafting the perfect game day outfit comes pretty darn close.

The only rules for game day outfitting are to make sure you’re wearing some form of scarlet and gray and to have fun! The possibilities are endless which is what makes getting dressed up so exciting. Jerseys are a game day staple but it’s also fun to change up your look and stand out in the crowd.

This Fashionista is rocking her game day apparel. She paired a DIY T-shirt turned spirit tank top with on-trend destroyed denim cut-offs. Both pieces are perfect for game day because they are casual and comfortable—two necessities for a long, hot day in the sun. She completed her look with a well-loved pair of Converse—again comfort is key—and homemade Buckeye necklace. Not only is this Fashionista stylish but she’s crafty too!

Looking to recreate this look without all of the DIY effort? Pair this Homage tank top with these Urban Outfitters destroyed cut-offs for a similar look. Don’t forget to accessorize and show off your personal style!

One Simple Change: If you’re going out after the game to celebrate the latest Buckeye victory swap your cut-offs for a pair of black skinny jeans and black or gray heeled booties. Wing your eyeliner, swipe on a fresh coat of mascara and you’re ready to go! Go bucks!
