Style Syllabus: What To Wear To Basketball Games

Your brackets are drawn, and your seats (whether in the bleachers or at your college bar) are secured—but, what are you wearing to March Madness? Forget jerseys, those are for the players, and not the kind that you are. You can still show your colors without looking like a second stringer by taking cues from sporty moveable fabrics, bold color palettes, and fun accessories. We've come up with four outfits to wear to basketball games, inspired by four top teams.
