Game Day College Fashion | Be Trendy AF This Football Season

If you go to a big football school, you know that game day college fashion is very important. There are many options when it comes to dressing for the football games. What's more, so much of what you decide to wear depends on the weather. More students tend to go to the games at the beginning of the school year, unless you go to one of those schools where missing  game is a mortal sin. When the weather is nice, think crop tops, cheerleader skirts and DIY school tees. Certain schools have their primary game day attire. For example, when you think University of Southern California, you know all the girls wear the cheerleader skirts and some sort of USC top. In Iowa, the standard gear includes fun black and yellow striped pants. Read on to find out the best game day college fashion trends.

Game Day Graphic Tees and DIY College Tees

Game day graphic T-shirts, and shirts like it, come in handy for game day. They are different from the typical game day outfits, like jerseys and cheerleader skirts. They're also easy to wear and look good on almost anyone.

Do-It-Yourself tees are all the rage right now. There are some 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. You might even 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. You could also make the school tee a halter top with just a bit of altering.

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!

Wear Your School's Typical Garb

Certain schools have their typical attire when it comes to game day. Of course, you have to wear your school's colors, but there may be specific traditions for game day. Find out what you can about your school's traditions before the big game.

Some school traditions that come to mind include Iowa's black and yellow bumblebee-esque attire. The most popular? Black and yellow striped pants are very popular there. Other gals sport the white and yellow miniskirt, but the black and yellow pants come in handy during the fall and winter months. Another school is USC. I've been to a game day there (so fun), and all the ladies are rocking their cheerleader skirts and USC crop tops. Since Los Angeles doesn't get too cold during fall and winter, this is pretty much the standard attire for the whole season. Penn State University students also sport all things Penn State. The typical blue and white shirt is dressed up with miniskirts, crop tops, high socks and Converse shoes.  

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

Colder Weather Game Day Outfits

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!

Traditional Game Day College Fashion

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, all available through Greek U.

Anything you wear for game day is going to be cute. Just remember to dress it up or down according to the season, and rock your school's colors like it's your job!
