WHAT TO WEAR: Tailgating

Here in the South, there is one thing that students take almost as seriously as their education and that is game day. We live for new game day outfits. At the University of South Carolina, you mainly notice a sea of black and garnet. Whether you are rocking a little black dress or a garnet romper, you are sure to impress.

The most important part of picking your tailgating outfit is finding something you are totally comfortable in while also remembering to show some school spirit. This Fashionista has chosen a garnet swing dress as her staple piece. It is lightweight, perfect for warm weather and it is easy to move around in. Choosing the right footwear can be a daunting task, especially when you know you have to walk a long distance. This Fashionista has chosen a pair of rustic cowboy boots for her outfit, which are both comfortable and chic. To accessorize, keep it minimal. You don’t want to be lugging around a huge bag and jewelry all day. Instead, opt for a smaller over-the-shoulder bag like this Fashionista did. As for jewelry, the tassel necklace is a popular trend right now and it would look great with most game day outfits. The Fashionista threw on a few of her favorite stackable bracelets to tie the whole outfit together. Keep the accessories to a minimum and you can’t go wrong. This Fashionista is sure to impress in her tailgate-ready outfit.

One Simple Change: This outfit is super easy to change around to fit any occasion. The dress works as a blank canvas, so by changing the shoes and jewelry you can make it work for many events. Ditch the boots for a pair of wedges to take this look from tailgate-ready to the perfect date night or girls night out look.
