WHAT TO WEAR: Tailgating

The fall semester is finally in full swing, and we all know what that means—football season! With football season also comes the beloved American pastime that is tailgating. Here at Ole Miss, tailgating is an all day extravaganza, and a sophisticated one at that. Game day attire is a huge tradition. While in the Grove, you will see nothing but students dressed to the nines in their refined southern game day apparel.

This Fashionista looks ready to hit the Grove in a fashionable and comfortable ensemble. She has embodied her Ole Miss spirit perfectly with her red A-line dress, navy blue Longchamp tote bag and navy blue Lilly Pullitzer wedges. Here in Mississippi, the weather for the first several game days can reach very high temperatures, so this Fashionista’s look is perfectly feasible for any sort of temperature spike. As for jewelry, she kept it simple with her gold hoop earrings and gold monogrammed necklace, which are two staple pieces in every girl’s wardrobe here at Ole Miss. In preparation for a warm day, she decided to continue the simplicity and wear a simple high ponytail, which will keep her cool and not needing to fuss with her hair. Everything about this Fashionista’s outfit is perfect for a long day of tailgating and cheering on her Ole Miss Rebels!

No matter what your school’s game day traditions and attire consist of, make sure you are always well equipped with your go-to pieces that will show your school spirit and keep you comfortable for the whole day!
