It’s finally football season, and in true LLScene fashion, we are featuring our favorite “Stadium Standout” looks that will have you feeling cool, comfortable, and stylish no matter what team you cheer for!
It doesn’t take a lot to be a stadium standout, but we do have a couple rules when it comes to college football fashion. One of our biggest: eliminate the logo t-shirt. Your everyday ‘bookstore’ tee is totally acceptable while lounging around the house, going to the gym, or running errands, but not if you’re trying to be a stadium standout. It’s a sartorial faux pas to throw on a t-shirt and call it an outfit if you plan on attending a game or watching with friends at a bar. If you must, we recommend a vintage style logo tee, or tank.
How can you be the best version of a stadium stand out as you represent your school? Think solid colors, complementary accessories and jewelry. When it comes to shoes, you want to be comfortable with flat sandals, boots and/or closed toed shoes (especially if you’re tailgating).
As some of you may know Lindsey and Lilly are both FSU fans, so we are featuring our favorite Seminole looks and boutiques in today’s post. Root for another big Florida school? It was a difficult task, but we wouldn’t leave our sports loving fashionistas hanging...even if you don’t cheer for the Noles.
It’s no secret that the ladies of Florida State know how to dress on gameday. However, seminole standouts have an advantage because of the amount of resources and themes available to them on a regular basis. You can’t walk into a trendy boutique without seeing an arrow necklace, fringe, or feathers - all of which can be worn on an FSU game day. Burgandy was named one of the colors to watch in fall, so garnet can be found in any department store you shop in this year. Without a doubt, whenever Lindsey & Lilly attend a Florida State game they end up on TV. This means gameday outfit strategizing starts months in advance.
With black and gold as their prominent colors, UCF fashionistas probably have it the easiest. If you’re planning on tailgating, going to a game, and then going out afterwards, get an outfit that can be functional on and off campus. You can get away with mixing and matching colors, patterns, and textures with black and gold. Depending on the shade, yellow can also act as an appropriate replacement for gold. While black tends to bring on a little heat, it’s always a ‘go to’ color if you’re in need of something that will flatter your assets. Embrace these colors, because most schools don’t have it so easy!
Fact: we have been to football games and have witnessed girls walk from tailgate to tailgate wearing high heels. This may or may not have happened in Gainesville...we’ll never tell! Don’t do it, it screams that you’re trying too hard. If you’re not on national television reporting the game from the sidelines, stay away from the high heels. Orange and blue are really hard colors to pull off, but somehow the girls at UF are able to pull it off graciously. We suggest wearing one solid color and accessorizing with the other. A royal blue dress paired with orange hair accessories is always a good look. Boutiques in Gainesville are fully stocked with what you need to be a stadium standout at UF.
Miami fans have it rough 100% of the time during football season because they never get a break in weather. On average, a game day in Miami can get up to 95 degrees, which is never a good look for a stadium standout. That being said, we recommend choosing comfort over anything else. White is an acceptable color you can wear that will keep you cool and fashionable the same time. Enhance this look with green shoes and orange embellishments for completion. Like the University of Florida, UM also doesn’t have the best color combination, so we recommend sticking to a solid color and accessorizing around that.
FAU has really turned up their football game the past couple of years, which excites a lot of Boca Raton locals. This also gives FAU students a reason to tailgate and enjoy a true college experience. The ladies of FAU have wasted no time becoming stadium standouts. Red and blue chevron patterns seems to be a popular tailgate style to gravitate towards. These are great colors to mix, match, and blend into your everyday look. The owl is a huge jewelry trend right now, so take advantage of it as you dress for game day this fall.
