WHAT TO WEAR: Tailgating

Buffalo chicken dip, chili, nachos…wait, I thought this was a fashion blog.

What does fashion and food have in common this fall? Tailgates. What is better than cheering on a sport, let’s face it, that most of don’t understand, and looking fabulous while doing it. I’ve got your what to wear and how to fool the crowds with the hottest tailgate trends.

Say good-bye to your jean short, cotton T-shirt and Converse sneaker days. It is time to be MVP of your tailgate. Don’t drop the ball, and learn from this Fashionista’s stellar style. The dark denim jeans and layered university crewneck sweatshirt shows the perfect amount of school spirit while remaining chic. I love the way she layers her plain sweatshirt with the polo button down, but the true players in this rocking ensemble are the statement necklace and sportswear drink wear.

Not only does the addition of the necklace add a feminine twist to game day attire, but she also she keeps its athletic with her university tumbler. On game day, the more team spirit the better. If you have nothing else, make your team colors your accessories and wear killer shoes. She finishes off her fall-perfect tailgate look with a simple ankle boot. With the football season kicking off the cooler months, this look is perfect and practical to stay warm in that stadium parking lot.

Whether it’s your hometown homecoming or an NFL game, don’t just impress those boys with your commitment to sports, show those other Fashionistas you are not a second string player when it comes to dressing for tailgates. Rock your outfit with the most spirit, and drown out any fashion haters or team rivals with war cries, because at the end of the day it’s all about enjoying the game and your company.

One Simple Change: No big game this weekend? No problem. Take this tailgate outfit out again for your fall weekend wear look by switching out that crewneck for a simple sweater. Nothing says fall and cold weekends like layered sweaters.
