Miss State Game Day Style Focus

What will you wear on game day?? If you say, oh, prob just a tshirt and shorts, and flip flops. This is for you.
Southern girls love to dress up for every occasion. Football is no exception. We like to see and be seen. We like to turn heads; Get a second glance. We like to make other girls jealous. Yes, indeed.

Chevron is very popular. A chevron print dress in a lightweight, breathable fabric, such as cotton or linen, in maroon and white, with a black belt and ballet flat is an easy choice. Dress it up with a chunky necklace and bangles.

For shorts, go bold. Go for maroon, paired with a silver shimmer top, and a black scarf. Go wild with an animal print belt. Pair with wood-sole wedges that flatter your skin tone. One could also look tres chic in a pair of silver sateen shorts, paired with a loose fitting maroon tank and black infinity scarf.

Of course, we love our monograms, just keep it to handbags and accessories (i.e. gold necklaces) for the ladies. Children will look adorable with their initials monogrammed on the chest area, or the bottom corner of their dresses.

How to dress a man: khaki shorts never go out of style. Just make sure you have a modern cut (NO PLEATS) and they are wrinkle free. A button down Polo in maroon is always a safe bet, but he may end up blending in with all the other guys on the grounds. Men have to feel comfortable in the midst of their cohorts, so don’t force him to wear something he’s not comfortable with (or you’ll end up being miserable too, having to listen to the griping all day). Brooks Brothers makes a wonderful long sleeve button down in maroon/white checker. I’m in love with their men’s department. Brooks Brothers clothing really do make a man look gooood. ;). An Oxford-type shoe would look amazing with this.

If you choose to wear a college T-shirt, pair it with cute denim short shorts, and a cute cowgirl hat. A T-shirt, paired with a cute short skirt and cowboy boots would also be adorable. Note: a cowgirl hat AND boots worn at the same time is a little overboard. It’s a football game, not a rodeo.

Whatever you consider wearing on game day, remember to wear your sunscreen, ladies! You won’t be having much fun with blistered shoulders… Just saying.

About Laurie (43 Articles)
A true southern girl at heart, Laurie was raised to love football. Her years at Mississippi State really developed her passion for everything gameday: Getting primped and polished in über-cute outfits, tailgating with new and old friends, fans clanging cowbells with great exuberance while the Bulldogs play great football inside Davis Wade Stadium. Laurie is a huge fan of Coach Mullen, his wife, Megan, and the team he has built. Could this team have a Heisman candidate??… After moving to Texas and marrying a fellow football fan who graduated from UTSA, she was thrilled when UTSA announced its plan to build a football program. The Athletic Director, Mrs. Lynn Hickey, has done a phenomenal job and has a large fan following, including Laurie. Laurie has been a season ticket holder since the first season, and has loved watching the team grow. Laurie loves to be crafty at times. Hand-painted glasses for both teams fill her cabinets, team wreaths hang on her front door. Her blue and orange feathered sombrero makes it to every UTSA game, loud and proud. Laurie has a B.S. in Marketing, and a Minor in Apparel, Textiles, and Merchandising from Mississippi State University.
