5 Tailgate Giveaway, Week 7: Style Your Look with Southern ProperRaise your pom poms, Southerners – it’s time for football in the South! Give us a Saturday,  the SEC, and a tall glass of sweet tea (or bourbon) and you can find us at the tailgate, cheering on our favorite teams. In honor of this fall tradition, we’re going to be giving away items every Wednesday that’ll take your tailgate party-throwin’ to the next level.

A good game-day outfit is hard to find. Your wardrobe needs to be comfortable enough to jump around in during the inevitable moments of excitement, warm enough to keep you cozy during a breezy night game, cute enough to show off in photos, and, most importantly, it must be in your team’s colors. We’ve partnered with the masters of casual class at Southern Proper to make that harrowing tailgate-outfit-search easy.

You’ll love sporting this comfy cotton Chadwick Popover (pick your color!) and a pair of timeless Tweed Caroline Tassel Flats by Southern Proper. This classy and casual outfit is absolutely perfect for a fall game day.

What’s your go-to game day outfit? Comment below for a chance to win. Official rules here.

    I’m one of 6 kids and love getting together with our family for tailgating festivities! This may sound ridiculous, but as a middle child I still call or text my sisters, daughter and nieces to see what they’re wearing to the game and dress accordingly. My favorite game day outfit is when my sisters, nieces and I all wear matching flannel scarves in our alma mater’s colors, accessorized with my mom’s vintage pearls. Sometimes we plan to match on purpose, but usually everyone wants to express their school passion with a unique outfit. Win or lose, we do it in style.

    My game day outfit is my skinny ankle length pants topped off with my crimson dolman style top and a kimono in crimson and cream with my ankle booties.

    Picking out a go-to gameday outfit requires the right combination of mixing style, comfort, and team spirit, and it just so happens that us Southern gals have downright perfected this art. Of course my gameday style changes throughout the fall months, but my favorite choices are always that no-fail pair of jeans (which must remain looking fresh even when I’ve had too much beer and buffalo chicken dip… AKA those babies have to stretch a little!), a team shirt (I’ve swiped a couple that my mom wore back in the day, so they are fabulously worn-in and faded… thanks, mom!) layered underneath a flannel (WV navy and old gold), topped with a quilted vest or chunky sweater, and some boots that are made for walkin’ all the way to the stadium and back. Throw on some classic pearl studs or a set of big, swingin’ chandelier earrings and then I’m good to go. The real pièce de résistance, however, is what’s happening under my boots: lucky socks! I’ve worn them to every game for years now, and I simply cannot be without them at any kickoff!

    I like to dress in layers when tailgating so I can add/remove if need be. My go-to look is casual and typically involves skinny jeans, a camisole under a flannel shirt, and a chunky sweater paired with booties or flats. I accent my look with an oversized piece of jewelry or two. And for those days when the temps decide to take a dip, I am prepared with my favorite cashmere poncho.

    As University of Kansas alumni, my go-to game day outfit always includes my red, sparkly, sequin uggs. To most people over the age of 13, they’re ridiculous. But to Kansas women, they’re the perfect amount school spirit combined with Dorothy’s ruby red slippers (a fellow Kansas girl with obvious style). It’s cold in Kansas, ruby red uggs keep my feet warm! Rock Chalk Jayhawk!

    Layer up from there depending on the time of year. I like to accessorize with my grandmother’s scarves, she like me was an Auburn grad

    My go-to game day outfit is a tastefully sequined three-quarter length sleeve garnet top with a black band around the neck and bottom paired with a pair of black straight leg ankle-length pants. My shoe of choice is a comfortable and classic black ballet flat. For jewelry, I wear silver Gamecock earrings and a silver bracelet sporting a Gamecock charm and, of course, a pearl. Go Gamecocks!

    My favorite go-to game day outfit has to be my navy shirt dress. The start of football season usually proves warm. I roll the sleeves up, then I dress it up with an orange silk scarf as a belt, a few bangles and a cute pair of flats or wedges. As fall sets in, the temp drops in Charlottesville. I use the same outfit but pair it with some nice warm tights, riding boots and wool coat on those exceptionally cool nights. Go Wahoos!!!
