Game Day Fashion: 3 Fresh Ways to Style Your College Sweatshirt

With all the excitement around football season and the tailgating that accompanies it, you might not be too thrilled about having to reacquaint yourself with your college sweatshirt now that it’s fall. Over a pair of jeans, it doesn’t make for the most exciting wardrobe element, but it’s a great way to show your school spirit – and your sense of style – if you style it the right way. Whether you go girly, edgy, or tomboy-chic, you’ll be sure to make a statement, both on the field and off.

Dabble in Denim 

Leave your trusty dark blue denim at home this weekend and shake up your style game with some printed pants instead. Since college sweatshirts are solid colors, you’ll have the perfect opportunity to play with pattern on your lower half, whether you choose florals, animal prints, or geometric patterns.

School Collars

Add an unexpected element to your game day ensemble with a blouse with an appliqué collar. Whether you choose studs, geometric metal, or a flirty peter-pan collar style, your personality will poke out of your collegiate gear in the cheekiest – and chicest – way possible. (Zara Blouses)

Don’t Skirt Around the Issue

A flirty, feminine skirt is a fun way to balance out the standard-issue shape of a college sweatshirt, and a good opportunity to take advantage of the last few days of warmer weather. Add a classic red lip to your look to amp up your style points even more.  (From Left to Right: J. Crew, Madewell, Madewell)
