What to Wear to an SMU Basketball Game

When Larry Brown took the job as the SMU men's basketball coach, I joked with one former NBA coach that the 73-year old Brown wanted a challenge.

"No, he just wants to remain relevant," the coach deadpanned.

Perhaps, but Brown has done a heck of a lot more than remain relevant.  He has transformed a dormant Mustang basketball program into a competitive team.  In just his second season in University Park, the Hall of Fame coach has guided SMU into the Top 25 for the first time since the 1984-85 season.  The Mustangs debuted at 23 this week after their 76-53 win over then 7th-ranked Cincinnati on Saturday, ending the Bearcats 15-game winning streak.

My daughter, Jordan, at Ford Stadium in 2012
I grew up going to games at Moody Coliseum as well as the old Ownby Stadium.  I wore an SMU cheerleader uniform, just like my daughter does now.  My grandfather went to SMU, was a huge supporter of the school and almost cried when the Mustangs got the death penalty.

SMU basketball games are now the hottest ticket in Dallas.  If you're a sports gal headed to the Hilltop, you have to look the part.  Fashion matters on the SMU campus.  Here is some inspiration to help you figure out what to wear to SMU basketball games.

SMU Mascot Skinny Jean

Start with a good base.  This red SMU Mascot Skinny Jean by OCJ Apparel is the perfect "support your school" pant to wear with a variety of tops.  You can buy these jeans in denim, too.

SMU Mascot Boot Cut Jean

Here is the same jean in a boot cut.  All the cuts and colors are totally cute.

SMU Women's Ladies Boots
SMU Women's Gameday Boots
Want to make a fashion footwear statement?  You can go with a hoochie heel, which always works on the SMU campus but I think these SMU Women's Gameday Boots are awesome.  They work with jeans, dresses, shorts, any look really.  You can wear them during the Winter to basketball games and in the cooler Fall months on the Boulevard for a tailgate.

SMU Basketball Ladies V-Neck T-Shirt

As for what to wear on top, you can Pony Up with this SMU Mustangs V-Neck T-Shirt.  I would pair it with a cute blazer and a stack of bracelets.

If you want to go more fashionista, wear something with SMU colors on top.  This blue blouse from Ann Taylor would look perfect with a red necklace this one:

Makinna's Chunky Red Triangle Stone Necklace
Here is another cute necklace option that features SMU red and blue.  It would look great with a variety of looks.

The Mustangs are on the road for the next two games until they come home to play my alma mater, University of Houston, on February 19th.  Meaning, you have time to get these delivered in time for the next home game!

Dallas is starving for good college basketball and we might just be entering an era in which we experience it for years to come.
