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.


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
