Game-day threads attract college students

Hello there, fellow fashion enthusiast! I hope you all are having a great week thus far! My week is almost over thanks to the much-anticipated one-day fall break! I am always on board for a long weekend at home because I tend to rope my mom into buying me some new clothes! Another weekend tradition at my house is to watch college football all day long. College football has really become a true “Southern” thing, and with its rise has come a new style.

TIP No. 6: COLLEGE FOOTBALL FASHION CAN BE PRODUCED AT HOME OR IN THE STORE

This post is going to be dedicated to showing y’all two different options at two different price levels! The first option will be some DIY (do-it-yourself) crafts. The second option will have some links to a couple websites that have game-day gear on the cheaper end of the spectrum when it comes to cost!

No. 1- DIY options

Every now and then I have the urge to get crafty and save some money in the process. It is always fun having a “Pinterest party” with my girlfriends where we spend all day crafting away at the Pinterest ideas we’ve seen.  I have seen two really cute college game day DIY’s that seem pretty easy and would fit in great at your most favorite teams stadium. The first DIY option is a ribboned game-day T-shirt that can be made from any old college football T-shirt! This link gives instructions on how to make the DIY T-shirt. The second DIY option is a game-day T-shirt dress. This one has been a real hit and some retailers sell them for around $60!! These two different links (link one, link two) give instructions how to make the T-shirt dresses. Sometimes it is easier to understand how to do something if there are different sources for instructions.

No. 2- Can’t make it? Buy it.

Sometimes we cannot always craft our way out of spending a little more money. In those cases we leave it to the professionals and buy the item from a store. I have done some searching around and found two sites that sell relevantly cheap game-day attire (as compared to some cites where dresses cost upwards of $70 to $100). Both of these links (link one, link two) will lead you to game-day attire! Also, the two links have other dresses, shirts, skirts and accessories other than game-day apparel! Most boutiques are now selling game-day apparel, so if you do not find something you like at these websites, you can always check out some local boutiques.

Speaking of game-day fashion, I would love to hear some stories about game-day fashion gone wrong. Comment about some not-so-hot outfits you have seen at games.

Have a great week and watch some football on Saturday!

XOXO, Alex

  1. I love this blog post so much. I always trick my grandma into helping me make crafts. She makes the outfits for the rocketts when they do their christmas show in Nashville! So she is very crafty herself! Your blog has inspired me to reach out to her this weekend ti help make some game-day outfits!

  2. I’m so glad that you covered this topic! The game day tshirt dress has been something I’ve always wanted to try and now I have a how to! Can’t wait to make a UK dress to wear with Mac to the games. At least I’ll look cute while they lose..
