I love football.
Let me try that again.
I LOVE FOOTBALL.
I’m a lifelong Nebraska Huskers and Green Bay Packers fan. I watch preseason games. I follow my teams in the off-season. I play fantasy football and last year I won my co-ed league. Football season is my favorite season.
With all of that said, it should come as no surprise that I also love football fashion! College football is right around the corner – my Huskers play their first game in less than one week- so it’s time to plan out those outfits for football season!
Here’s the thing about football season here in Nebraska: when the season starts at the end of August, the games can be HOT. That sun reflecting off the skyboxes creates a microwave-like feeling within the stadium. But come November, the last games of the season could be in an ice storm. You’ll find every kind of weather in those in-between months, so whether you’re going to a game or watching it with friends, we need to be prepared with a variety of outfits!
Here are some of my favorite ways to show your team spirit throughout the football season!
Football Outfit #1
This is what I grab for those late summer/early fall games – a team tee (with a little bling!), dark denim shorts (that won’t show any game food stains), a hat (to keep the sun off my face), and comfortable shoes (a must when walking from your car to the game and hiking up to your seat multiple times). My hair has to be up or pulled back when it’s hot or I will sweat to death, so a side braid under the hat is a fun option! And don’t forget the sunscreen!
Football Outfit #2
It makes me pretty happy when I can start wearing jeans on a regular basis and these KanCan jeans are the first jeans I will grab for game day this year! I absolutely love them paired with my new t-shirt from BeeRich Designs. Ashley, the designer behind BeeRich Designs, comes up with the absolute cutest designs and she is based right here in Nebraska!
I love how soft this tee is! The glitter Nebraska state design is feminine while highlighting my love for this state and football! BeeRich Designs can make a tee to highlight your favorite state, team, and sport! Just take a look around her Etsy shop and you fall in love, too. Use the code HOMEBOYS15 to get 15% off your BeeRich Designs order anytime, but hurry if you want your shirt for football season!
Football Outfit #3
Football and hoodies are the perfect match. But hoodies don’t have to look frumpy! For this look, I paired a great red Evy’s Tree hoodie with a basic black top and dark jeans, but added some extra flair with team color jewelry and comfy animal print shoes. Comfy, but cute – that’s the way to go on game day!
Football Outfit #4
Maybe a hoodie isn’t your style! A basic black cardigan is a great finishing piece for the fall. It allows you to wear your favorite team tee without getting cold and it pulls together an outfit in a heartbeat! For the comfortable shoes in this outfit, TOMS are the way to go. But my favorite piece of this whole outfit is the cute Nebraska necklace from Earthen Joy! I found this lovely shop at our farmers’ market and knew a white state necklace would be the perfect way to top off a game day outfit! She has a cute red option as well, but I can wear the white with just about anything!
Football Outfit #5
So, what happens when you have to be somewhere else on game day, like a conference or event? That happened to me a couple years back and I just had to wear my scarlet and cream even though I couldn’t watch ! There are so many fun ways to go dressy and support your team! I chose a simple, soft gray dress and black riding boots to go with the real star of this football show: the Game Day scarf from fashionABLE! The Game Day scarf comes in all your favorite team colors and shows off your team spirit for a casual or dressy look. The scarf is fabulous, but the real win in all of this is how you invest in the life of the woman who made this scarf when you purchase!
I feel like I could style five more outfits for you right now because I just adore getting dressed up to cheer on my teams, but I hope these five outfits give you some fun inspiration for the upcoming season! Or maybe I need to do a Packers version next?!
I’d love for you to share – what’s your favorite game day look? How do you like to show off your team spirit?
