In honor of UT’s first home football game this fall, I thought I would post what I wore to the game when I got to go a few years back. UT’s colors are obviously orange and white so it was easy for me to find a white dress and then add some orange accessories. It can get really hard to find your school’s exact color in a dress sometimes (especially if their colors are really unique), so my advice for that would be to go shopping in stores like boutiques that are close to the campus. They purposely stock-up on dresses and shirts that are the school’s color. I think the best thing to wear to a college football game is definitely a dress unless you go more towards winter when it’s colder out. Dresses are so comfortable to me while also looking like you tried to dress up some. Oh and they are cool which is especially important here in the south haha! If you are able to find a solid colored dress in your school’s color then it becomes a super easy outfit to put together. I would make sure your dress isn’t too fancy and has a more cotton like material. You also want it to be comfortable! Once you’ve found a dress you like, all you have to do is add a necklace or bracelet in the other school color and then pair it with some cowgirl boots or sandals! I don’t recommend heels since they just aren’t practical with all of those bleachers and stairs.
Another simple tip is to polish your nails in your school’s color. I just did orange nails and it gives you another pop of a color that you may not have had much of in your outfit before. You could also try a less dramatic version of this with your makeup. Like for me, I could have done a peachy lip color or blush to play up the orange some. It would be super easy if your school color was red to just add some red lipstick. I probably would steer clear of this though if your color was something like blue or green since those aren’t really natural makeup colors.
For men, it’s really simple. A polo shirt in your school’s color which can usually be bought at your school’s gift shop or online store and a pair of khaki shorts is perfect for the game. Don’t forget some sunglasses and have fun!!!
