Me & some of my sorority sisters at a home football game. (I'm in the top right corner!)
Another season of football is upon us! Pre-season games, rankings, and predictions are in the air! And that means, it's time to get your gear ready for game day!! I've complied some of my favorite items from stores like Victoria's Secret to help you come up with your own game day style!!
As a recent college graduate, I know all about game day styling. Style is all about feeling comfortable and confident. And dressing for a ball game is no different. Having attended a national championship winning SEC school really opened my eyes to football fashion. I saw just as many casual looks as I did dressy. I've dressed for many football games down south (Bryant-Denny stadium in Tuscaloosa, AL) and I've worn everything from t-shirts & shorts, to summer dresses, to knit sweaters & riding boots. The culture and atmosphere at the university definitely influenced what students wore to the game. And that's not necessarily a bad thing either. You'd have students in full body paint, while other preferred a more clean cut look, wearing slacks and button up shirts. And let's not forget the the football jersey and cowgirl boots combo! (I liked it but could never pull it off!!)
I remember wearing a red sun dress and sandals to my first game! Wearing dresses to ball games was and is the style at most southern school. There's time for plenty photo ops while tailgating on the Quad, so you have to make sure you look good. Now that doesn't mean everyone wore sundresses all the time. We just wore them because it was ridiculously hot during the first half of the season!
With my "expertise" (I'm not really an expert lol) in game day fashion, I've put together some great items for you to incorporate into your game day outfits this season!
Blaine Bowen Jewelry has some amazing game day jewelry! Gameday Swag has a wide selection of ornate, made to order gemstone bracelets for you to choose from in multiple team colors. I ended up checking out this website to discover even more game day jewelry options with a collaboration between Blaine Muhl and Sydney James, the sister of Jessie James Decker (star of the reality show Eric & Jessie: Game On on E!).They've come together in SJ ❤️ B Gameday Glam Collection and created some lovely pieces. The items from the SJ ❤️B Gameday Glam Collection are now available for pre-order and will be shipped beginning September 1st. Gameday Swag pieces are available for purchase now. And guess what? If you don't see your team's colors, you can leave a note on your order and they'll put it together for you!
VS Pro Collection
You can't go wrong with ordering some team gear from Victoria's Secret! They have a variety of tops for all NFL team. I love the fact that the gear has a relaxed yet feminine look to it. You can dress these pieces up or down and wear them throughout the season. I will personally be purchasing a Varsity Jersey to add to my collection! I had a sorority varsity jersey in college and I lived in it!! I currently own a cute New York Jets tee shirt from Victoria's Secret that I'll be wearing on Sundays.
Game Day Inspired Looks
The looks above are what I would figure as ideal for me. Kristin Cavallari, wife to Chicago Bears quarterback, has game day style down pat. You can't go wrong with a graphic tank, jeans and booties. I'm loving the relaxed look here! I stumbled upon this image of Caroline Harper Knapp of House of Harper on Pinterest. Her outfit is effortless with a football helmet tee shirt, classic blazer and great accessories. And let's not forget Emily Gemma from The Sweetest Thing! Her outfit is what most females on campus wore to ball game once it started to cool off. From head-to-toe, her outfit is game day ready!
Nikki from Bedazzles after Dark and Amanda from Little Miss Fearless put their own spins on game day style. I can't get enough of Nikki's feminine look. I never knew you could incorporate a baseball hat into a stylish outfit. Be sure to click here for more of Nikki's game day looks. And Amanda's outfit is a perfect 10!! I love the layering of the sweater over the chambray hat. You can never go wrong with a comfy pair of riding boots for those chilly game nights and her 49ers toboggan adds a festive and whimsical touch.

Victoria Secret has a plethora of gear for universities and colleges across the country! Above are a few casual pieces that pay homage to my alma mater!!
