WHAT TO WEAR: Tailgating

October 16th, 2015 at 2:00am

Blue and white: The two colors that never go out of season here in Lexington, Kentucky. Whether you decide to dress up with a skirt and cowboy boots, or dress down with jeans and a T-shirt, wearing these two colors to any sporting event is a must. It’s often challenging to dress both warm and stylish for a tailgate when the weather drastically changes from week to week, like it does here in Kentucky. Luckily, this Fashionista knows how to keep warm and look great while doing so.

Since it’s fall in the Bluegrass, this means it’s time to bring out the sweaters and the boots. Most fans don’t want to be caught wearing anything but UK blue on game days, so this Fashionista chose to incorporate this color into her outfit through her leggings. My love for oversized sweaters will never fade due to the fact they keep you warm, they’re stylish and they go great with pretty much anything. Whether you choose to wear denim, trousers, leggings or even a skirt, it’s easy to find a sweater that will complement the bottom half of your outfit. Since white is UK’s other school color, the white sweater that this Fashionista chose to pair with her leggings shows her school spirit.

I’m confident that shoes can tie an entire outfit together. Even the littlest details of an outfit, like socks, can also affect your overall appearance. As seen above, this Fashionista added more to her outfit with her socks. Although her socks are maroon, they have a blue tint to them that matches with her leggings.  Words of advice: if you don’t own at least one pair of booties, go out and buy yourself a pair. A lot like sweaters, booties go great with most outfits and they’re easy to cater to your own style. I’m absolutely in love with the ankle booties that this Fashionista is wearing because they’re simple in their color and design, but they still make a statement in this outfit.

One Simple Change: There’s nothing better than going to a pumpkin patch during this time of year. As the weather becomes colder throughout this season, add a black or gray vest to complete the outfit and stay warm while picking pumpkins.
