With all the excitement around football season and all of the tailgating opportunities that accompany it, you might overlook that necessary component that can put a dreary tinge on the celebrations. Yes, your trusty college sweatshirt.
It’s the best way to show your spirit, short of actually hopping into a mascot costume. But over a pair of jeans, it doesn't exactly make for a style statement. Instead, we like to simplify things and take one of two fashion routes: Either go for gold with girly touches or toughen it up and make a sporty statement.
We’ve got all the goods for both, and we certainly never discourage a good game of mix and match, so click through to see our favorite accompaniments for college-sweatshirt attire.
P.S.: We also happen to think a red lip is entirely perfect for game day, regardless of your school colors.
