Elevate Your Tailgate

With pre-season game’s knocking on our door it’s time to start thinking about this season’s wardrobe. Even if you aren’t planning on attending any games it’s fun to dress the part while attending parties with family and friends on game nights.
To start the season off, Festivity put together a ‘season staples’ list. This “list” will prove you can look great on a budget, reuse the ‘staples’ in a way that no one will notice, and most importantly support your favorite team!
1.     A White or Black Basic Top. White and black blouses are so versatile and make mixing and matching easy. The best part is that almost every team either uses black or white in their accent colors, so you simply can’t go wrong. Add to a skirt, jeans, or shorts and you are ready for a tailgate as classy as a fan can get.
2.     A Cropped Sweater, because nothing is better than football in the fall with a relaxed sweater and jeans. This look is pulled off by not trying too hard, yet still looking fabulous. This is the ideal outfit solution for those house parties that are causal but you still need to look really cute because your crush will be there!
3.     A Light, Transitional Dress. With temperatures at peak highs during the day and cooler porch nights, this light, year-round dress is the perfect go-to outfit to represent your team. This shirt dress by J&M Clothing is one of our top game-day picks for Auburn fans! This dress can be worn with the bow in the front or back…talk about versatility. This is the perfect get out of class early and head to watch that late afternoon game without an outfit change!
4.     STATEment Necklace. A statement necklace is one of the easiest ways to add your favorite team’s spirit and color to any outfit. We like to take “representing your city” to the next level by literally wearing it …yes…It’s that easy.  Choose your states charm and add it to a chain.
5.     Arm Candy. Stacks on Stacks on Stacks. That’s what’s trending this fall. Festivity jumped on board with Laura and Lily stackable bracelets in full fall gameday colors. These bracelets are handmade by woman in Nepal and are a great price for a gift for a friend or even yourself!
6.     Maxi Mixer. So you forgot to shave your legs because the dorm room showers are as cold as ice, no problem. Grab one of our plethora of Gameday maxi dresses and you will be covered from head to toe…shhh your secret is safe with us!
7.     Team Themed Scarf. Just like statement necklaces, scarfs can be a quick and easy way to add your favorite team’s colors to your outfit. Refer to our 1.on the list and slap one of these on and there you have it: Gameday Ready! Easy as 1, 2, 3.
8.     Legging Line-Up. It’s not quite cool enough for jeans so here is an easy substitute. There are comfortable enough to get up and scream for your team, but still fashionable enough to leave make an appearance beyond the simplicity of your couch. (And how cute are they paired with our Nadie Bootie?!)
9.     A Crossbody Bag. If you’re planning on going from a house party to a tailgate then to the stadium you need to pack light! The best bag to choose is a crossbody bag that is large enough to carry all your necessities but small enough it won’t weigh you down.
10.  Comfortable, Yet Trendy Boots. I can’t express how quickly fall is approaching. With the cooler temperatures you’re going to want warm boots that are not only versatile with multiple outfits but also comfortable. These Dolce Vida ‘Promise Boots’ have the right accents and fit to make you the showstopper of the season!
11.  Cheers to football being back!
