Game Day Graphic Tees
This shirt and shirts like it come in handy for game day.
They are different than the typical game day outfits (jerseys, cheerleader skirts, etc.).
DIY College Tees
Do-It-Yourself tees are all the rage right now.
There are these that you can lace yourself if you really want to get fancy with it, or you can simply cut an over-sized top to be shorter.
Or, do both!
Cut strips in the bottom of the shirt to make a fun tee, or tie dye a drab college shirt to make it more fun for game day.
Or, make the school tee a halter top like this cutie.
You can also cut out the neck of the shirt, leaving the seam, to make a cute cutout version.
The possibilities are truly endless when it comes to making a game day shirt!

In the colder weather, beanies, sweatshirts and some sort of pants are added to the ensembles.

Dress up your game day outfit this fall by wearing an over-sized sweater and boots.
Accessorize with face paint, college stickers on your face, or pins.
If you want to go the more casual route, you can wear an over-sized college sweatshirt, beanie, and leggings.
Or, simply add a beanie to a college tee with a jacket over it and you’re set!

You can always go the traditional route and wear a jersey and shorts or jeans.
There are traditional jerseys, or jerseys with your sorority letters either sewn on or embroidered into the shirt!
