Top 5 Football Fashion Faux Pas

We’ve focused on what to wear to football games but what about what not to wear? Nix these from your gameday wardrobe so you don’t look like a football fashion rookie.
what not to wear, college football, nfl, what to wear to a football game


Stilettos or CFM Shoes
If you have A-list parking and suite tickets heels are fine because you won't be traipsing across concrete to get into the stadium. But if you're not a member of the 1%, don't wear hoochie shoes. You'll stumble, fall and look like you're trying too hard. Go with a wedge shoe or flats.

Tight Clothing 
If you can go to a game, avoid the fat-laden snacks and not drink, God bless you. If you are like the rest of us, don't look like a stuffed sausage on gameday. Wear clothes that are on the loose side. Think about it: you'll likely be drinking and eating food you'd never eat during the week. How did sausage balls become a tailgating staple? I digress. Gameday food, combined with tigght clothing is a fashion malfunction form of a split seam waiting to happen. Trust me. It's happened to yours truly. Don't wear a muumuu but err on the side of wearing something that allows you to breathe.

Drag Queen Makeup
Leave the spackle-like foundation and false lashes at home. When it's hot you'll sweat it off and have raccoon eyes from too much eye makeup. When it's cold, it just feels heavy. Apply your makeup with a light hand. Go with soft concealer (this is a pro makeup artist friend of mine's favorite) and tinted BB cream. Top it with mascara, subtle eye shadow, blush and longlasting lip gloss. Here are more secrets to long-lasting makeup

Kitchen Sink Handbags
Unless you're trying to smuggle booze into a game, a small crossbody bag is the way to go. You'll want to have your hands free to clap and hold your cocktail. A ginormous bag will get in the way. You also need to take into account that most college stadiums are adopting NFL-like purse policies, which means bigger-than-offensive-lineman-bags don't work.

Mini Skirts
If you do a 2-hour tailgate plus a 3-hour game and then drinks afterward, chances are you'll be more than delightfully tipsy. Schnockered and short skirts don't mix. It's a recipe for a Paris Hilton Flash The World moment that no one wants to see.

Your Turn
What's the worst thing you've seen someone wear at a football game? I could write a book on the fashion mistakes I've made and the ones I've seen. Share your missteps in the comments section.

SMU GameDay Outfits

From Tory Burch, J. Crew and Ralph Lauren to Chanel, Prada and Hermès you can wear the latest looks fresh from the runway on SMU gamedays and fit right in. Fans attending the games dress up, look like a million bucks and expect you, too, as well.

In fact, Gerald J Ford Stadium is the only one (and I have been to a lot of them) that I have seen have a sponsor selling fine jewelry on the club levels. When we had season tickets Dallas jeweler Bachendorf's (whom I love...they did my wedding ring) sold luxury jewelry on the club level.

About SMU in 2014
The Mustangs went 5-7 in 2013 and missed a bowl game for the first time since 2008.

Redshirt freshman Neal Burcham will succeed Garrett Gilbert as the Mustangs starting quarterback. He started two games last season when Gilbert suffered a knee injury going and was 51-of-86 for 434 yards passing, one touchdown, three interceptions and eight sacks. Ouch.

SMU opens the season against Baylor in Waco on August 30th. The Mustangs have a tough non-conference schedule with TCU and Texas A&M on tap. Click here for the full SMU schedule.

College Football Style Guide For Guys


Click on any item to learn more about it. 

Not to stereotype but guys have it easy when it comes to dressing for college football games.

They can get away with throwing on a t-shirt or golf shirt, adding a pair of jeans, maybe a baseball hat and they're good to go.

Still, finding cool t-shirts can be tough. I love everything about 47 Brand's fashion-forward take on gameday style. When it come to a more refined look. Peter Millar gets it right every time.

TCU GameDay Outfits


If you're going to a TCU football game and are a Horned Frogs fan, or a guest of one, you better wear purple. From Cowtown society doyennes to ranchhands, they are rowdy, loud and purple proud in Fort Worth.

You'll see a range of looks with a western bend on TCU gameday. Think ostrich boots, big belt buckles and purple galore: jeans, shirts, jewelry, hats, scarves, gloves, vests and more. You name it, if they can find it in purple, it's fair game.

About TCU in 2014
I love Gary Patterson and what he has going on in Fort Worth. He's honest, unfiltered, expects accountability and doesn't take a bunch of BS. All things I appreciate.

The Horned Frogs enter their third season in the Big 12. They went 4-8 in 2013. Defense is always a strength of a Patterson-coached squad and is expected to be the case this year. Nine defensive starters return to a unit that led the Big 12 in rush defense and finished second overall in the conference last year.

There is one glaring absence: Preseason Defensive Player of the Year DE Devonte Fields. Patterson dismissed him from the team this offseason after an alleged domestic incident. See what I mean about Patterson not taking a bunch of BS?

Texas GameDay Outfits

With apologies to a certain attorney you see on television all hours of the night, the real hammer is currently serving as the head coach of the Texas football team.

Charlie Strong has suspended and dismissed players for "undisclosed violations" and violating team rules without a second thought. It's a huge departure from what football players have previously experienced in Austin.

When it comes to gameday style, though, anything goes. Really. You will see everything from thrift-shop finds to the latest Chanel collection (which was Texas-inspired, btw) in Austin for a Longhorns game. It all works.

About The 2014 Texas Lonhorns
I personally have low expectations for the Longhorns this year. This will be Coach Strong's mulligan. He'll have the chance to rebuild and fans will accept it. I think. Led by Malcolm Brown and Johnathan Gray, Texas should have a strong running game. I also expect Texas to be tougher, both mentally and physically.

Texas opens the season August 30th against North Texas in Austin. Here is the complete 2014 UT schedule.

North Texas has a fun gameday scene. From beautiful Apogee Stadium to the pregame drinkingtailgating, whatever it is, Denton is a great place to visit for a football game. What's crazy, though, is that UNT has yet to sell out Apogee Stadium since it opened in 2011.

When it comes to gameday fashion, North Texas fans take it a bit more casually. You'll see a dress every now and then but mostly it's tops, t-shirts, jeans and shorts.

About The 2014 North Texas Team
North Texas continues to improve under head coach Dan McCarney who has more energy than a three year-old hopped up on a bag of Skittles. The Mean Green finished last season with a win in the Heart of Dallas Bowl to wind up 9-4.

McCarney has yet to name his starting quarterback this season. With three-year starter Derek Thompson gone, backup Andrew McNulty and JUCO transfer Josh Greer are battling for the starting quarterback job.

North Texas opens the season August 30th against Texas in Austin. Here is the entire 2014 UNT schedule. UNT hosts SMU in its home opener on September 6th.

Texas Tech GameDay Outfits

Texas Tech football coach Kliff Kingsbury and his permanent 5'o clock shadow are so hot right now the only thing that could cool him off is the epic ALS Ice Bucket Challenge he did with the Red Raiders football team, cheerleaders and staff.

Since Kingsbury became the Tech head coach, Lubbock has had a cool factor it's never before experienced. When it comes to your GameDay outfits for Red Raider football games, that cool factor should be on full display.

At Tech, you can get away with wearing something a bit edgy. In fact there are entire lines of ammunition-themed jewelry that will truly help you get your guns up.

About Texas Tech's 2014 Team
After posting a 7-0 start in 2013, the Red Raiders lost five in a row but did manage to win a bowl game and finish 8-5 (4-5 in the Big 12).

One thing we have grown accustomed to seeing from Texas Tech is a potent offense. This is no different under Kingsbury. Tech led the Big 12 in offense and ranked second nationally with 392.8 yards per game in 2013. They did lose some key receivers but sophomore quarterback Davis Webb is a textbook passing game QB. Expect Webb to look to receiver Jakeem Grant a lot this season.

Their defense was an achilles heel, particularly against the run, finishing 99th in the nation in rush defense. Tech also lost all four starters in the secondary.

And then...there was the dance off during spring football and Kinsbury breaking up with an Arkansas fan. I'm telling you...there's cool factor in Lubbock.

Tech opens the season against Central Arkansas on August 30th. Here's the complete schedule.

Texas A&M GameDay Outfits



Click on any item to learn more about it. 

Maroon Madness
Even though Johnny Manziel has left College Station for the Cleveland Browns, where he's flipping off the Redskins, fashion is still important on Aggie GameDay.

When I recently visited the Apparel and Accessories Market at Dallas Market Center, GameDay fashion options were everywhere. The only thing hotter? The color maroon. Retailer upon retailer, mentioned how popular the maroon color was because of Texas A&M.

"Maroon is so in-demand for us right now because of the folks in Texas," 2Tee Couture founder Sigal Levi told me.

If you're looking for something with the A&M logo, this dress is perfect. Want something a bit more versatile? Any combination of the outfits featured in these photos or in the lookbooks below will definitely have you scoring a fashion touchdown.

Click on any item to learn more about it.

About Texas A&M's 2014 Team
The Aggies went 9-4 last year with Manziel. Texas A&M lost a number of talented players on offense in addition to the popular quarterback: RB Ben Malena, WR Mike Evans and OL Jake Matthews. Head coach Kevin Sumlin named sophomore Kenny Hill the starting quarterback for 2014.

A&M returns many of the same players on defense. That's not necessarily a good thing considering the Aggies gave up more than 32 points a game. 

A&M opens the season against South Carolina on August 28th. Download the full Texas A&M schedule here.

Manziel, by the way, will start his NFL career as a backup to Brian Hoyer, who was named the Browns starting quarterback.

Baylor Gameday Outfits


Baylor Gameday outfit, baylor gameday, Baylor Gameday Dress, What to Wear to a Baylor Football Game,
LOVE this dress for a Baylor game! Looks great with a fun bracelet & yellow Kendra Scott earrings.

Finding stylish, colorful gear to support your favorite team is tougher than finding a flask on the Baylor campus. 

It's cliché but true: for many women, their college football gameday outfits are as important as the game itself. I know women (and some men) who agonize over what they're going to wear.

It takes some digging but you can find great looks to support your favorite school on gameday and throughout the week.

We've covered gameday outfits on a broad scale, featuring looks for a variety of schools, We've featured gameday dresses with logos, ones without themand gameday bracelets. Now let's focus on looks specific for each school, starting with Baylor.
