As much as I love summer, I cannot wait for it to be fall again so college football is in full swing! Getting together with friends, dressing in school colors, and cheering on your team will fill more of your fall weekends than not. Your social calendar will feel more packed than ever and you’ll find yourself stocking your closet with college colors. Gameday weekends will give you memories and pictures for years to come so dressing the part is pretty important.
I opt for a more casual, sporty, and comfortable gameday look so that I look cute, but can have fun without worrying about my outfit. Here’s my go-to formula for the perfect gameday look!
First Down: Comfy Staple
I always find myself reaching for a neutral base item on gameday. Dresses like this one are great because they’re breezy and soft. I love that this can be worn on days that aren’t gameday because of the neutral color and everyday cut. If I’m opting for a top and bottom instead of a dress I usually go with a cute denim skirt and a college specific tee!

Second Down: Sweet Kicks
Comfortable footwear is incredibly important for gameday. You’ll be walking a lot and blisters can definitely damper your fun! Avoid this by choosing your shoes wisely. There are great options for cute and comfy sneakers so there’s no reason to sacrifice style for comfort.
Third Down: College Gear
No gameday outfit is complete without showcasing a little love for your college. When I choose a neutral base item like this dress, I love to throw on a Clemson hat. It’s just enough school spirit without being too overwhelming and is perfect for sunny gamedays. I also grab a Clemson cup or mascot sticker if I’m feeling it. It’s so much fun incorporating college gear I already own into my gameday looks!
Fourth Down: Layering Piece
This piece not only completes the look, but it also serves a useful purpose! When transitioning into fall from hotter summer months I always throw on a layering piece like this denim button down. Night games can get chilly and sometimes weather is unpredictable—it’s better to be safe than sorry. I love how versatile this button down is outside of gameday season as well!

Scoring Drive: Must-Have Accessories
Between sunglasses and staple jewelry you’ll be all set with these finishing pieces. I always keep sunglasses on me even if it’s cloudy—you never know when the sun might peek through! Head to Express Factory Outlet for your sunglass needs. Basic jewels are a must have for tying the look together. You can never go wrong with a few chokers or simplistic pieces.
