The first day of class has crept up on us all and with football season staring us in the face I figured I’d give tips, advice, and a guide on what to expect.
“What should I wear?”
What to expect:
- Tailgating is the time right before the game starts that gets everyone ready for and lit for the game.
- Most people wear comfortable clothes because tailgate usually last about four hours (don’t arrive on time) and then the game is of course four to five hours. So wear something you can move around in and still look cute/handsome.
- Bring sunglasses; because the sun can get real disrespectful.
- Bring some drank. Because why not? (21+)
- Shoes you don’t mind getting dusty or possibly messed up. You’ll more than likely be in the grass so don’t wear something you can’t get stains off of.
I’ve prepared a couple of looks with the help of the gentleman of Be Humble. You have a few options but honestly it really just depends on how fly you are trying to be.
now this style is very basic and casual but it will style catch a few eyes from the ladies.
A simple school spirit shirt from your universities bookstore, a pair of your favorite shorts joggers or cut off sweats (if you are opting for the cut offs please make sure they look presentable) and a pair of casual sneakers.
The next look will make you stand out a bit more. This look can be changed to fit any schools colors you’ll just need to buy a jersey that has your schools colors.
Shout out to our Be Humble family at University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
Black ripped shorts or jeans, a jersey featuring your schools colors, a nice chain and a pair of sneakers will complete this look.
The next look is for when the weather gets colder but you still want to be put together.
This look is inspired by my illustrious University; Texas A&M University- Commerce.
Another shirt from your universities bookstore (get long sleeves so that you can be warm at the game!) Black ripped jeans, an army green jacket for warm and fashion reasons and of course a gold watch to give the look a touch of bling. Now you can choose which shoes best suit your personal style. We suggest shoes that you don’t mind getting a little dusty due to the tailgate being in the grass.
The style is an unconventional outfit that still allows you to rep your school and have spirit.
We paired the black ripped jeans with a white t-shirt underneath a plaid button down to incorporate layers making this a perfect look for that chilly fall nights at the game. We opted for the trendy Vans because almost everyone has a pair or something similar in their closet. #OnaBudget Also don’t forget a hat! This is perfect for when you didn’t get a haircut and need to hide that edge up. Be Humble stay looking out.
For those attend HBCUs we didn’t forget about you! This is another casual look.
Ripped jeans, a university Sweatshirt and some fly kicks is all you need to achieve this look.
first look, casual look
A pair of tights (please be sure they are not see through sis), a white cami or t-shirt, jean jacket and a hat that has your schools emblem or name on it. This can be paired with thigh high boots in fall, sneakers or even sandals.
second look, warm casual look
This look has ripped jeans, a pair of cute booties, long-sleeved school shirt and a nice simple watch & bracelet set. Add a jacket to keep warm during cold games.
third look, super cute yet casual
this look was adapted from our very on Be Humble Blogger Meagan.
ripped jeans, white halter top and sandals work perfectly with this look. Add sunglasses and a cute lip gloss and you’re good.
This look screams fineee yet comfortable.
The key to any tailgate and gate outfit is comfort. Pair your favorite off-shoulder top (we suggest your schools colors), ripped jeans and a nice watch set. Now the woman in the photo has on heels but we suggest a nice strapped sandal.
fifth look, dressy but not too much
a cute off shoulder dress with, sandals and a choker that represents your schools colors.
