The Best Game Day Looks For Fall

It’s that time of year! Football season is here, yay! You’ve heard by now that my son is coaching a high school team. I’ve got a LOT of game-day outfits to come up with because I can’t be sitting in the stands looking frumpy! Of course, the school colors are blue and white, but if I’m going to use this platform for football looks, I have to go with the Tennessee Vols! Don’t worry. Today I’m sharing the best game day looks for fall, but I’ll include some other colors too.

The Best Game Day Looks For Fall – Orange

While I love the Volunteers, they aren’t the only football team to wear orange. Syracuse and Clemson do, as well as Florida, Oklahoma, and others. And there are plenty of NFL teams who wear the color, such as Miami, Cincinnati, and Chicago, to name a few.

Where I live, you are either a VOLS fan or a HOKIES fan. There might be a few who root for UVA or other teams, but most people here wear orange in one way or another. Tennessee VOLS are orange and white, Virginia Tech Hokies are maroon and orange, and UVA is navy and orange. You can’t go wrong by choosing a solid orange top, like some of the ones below.

I love this sweater! This would be perfect to wear with white pants or jeans or whatever contrasting team color, like navy, that works. If orange isn’t your thing, don’t worry. You know I have your back! This comes in several other colors like black, green, and Alabama red.

It’s usually pretty cool around here by the time college football really gets going, but not always. I don’t love the idea of wearing shorts on bleachers, but I also don’t want to get hot. This skort is a great option. Yes, it comes in several other colors! I think this would look great with a white shirt.

Speaking of white shirts, this one is great for game day. I could tie it at the waist and wear it with the skirt above, or pair it with jeans and put a cute orange tank underneath. It doesn’t have to be expensive to look cute at a neighborhood watch party.

The Best Game Day Looks For Fall

Here’s another EASY way to look cute as you cheer on your favorite team. Throw this cardigan over a white tank top, put on your cutest jeans and a branded cap, and you will ROCK this look. It comes in navy, black, red, and a bunch of other colors and is just $23 dollars.

This lightweight shirt in orange is a great option for fall, with or without a football game. Like the white shirt above, you can tie it and wear it as is, or you can leave it open and put a contrasting tank underneath. This shirt is from Walmart and comes in pale blue, black, white, and others, and is very affordable at just $17 dollars.

Earrings are a simple and inexpensive way to support your team. These resin earrings are light and come in just about every color you can think of. This would be great, especially if you’re a “jump on the bandwagon” type of fan who wants to cheer but doesn’t want to get super invested, lol.

The Best Game Day Looks For Fall – Red

When I decided to do a post on game day looks, I did some research. Did you know the most common color combination for teams is red and white? Interesting!

Here’s a cute blouse to wear that would look great alone or under a jacket. The flirty sleeves are a nice detail! My Georgia Bulldogs peeps could pair this with a black sweater or jacket and rock the stadium. It’s only $24 dollars, and like so many, comes in lots of great colors.

It’s all about the sleeves for me! I love the silhouette of this sweater. It is casual enough to wear to a football game but could be dressed up with a nice pair of pants and statement jewelry. No one would believe it’s only $35 dollars. Again, if you don’t like red, it comes in many other colors.

Can you wear a dress to a football game? Yes! There are big games between rivalries, homecoming, etc., where it’s perfectly appropriate to wear a dress. What the heck? If you want to wear one on any given game day, I say go for it! Think how pretty this would look in the stands! At only $35 dollars I think you’ll get plenty of wear out of it.

Hello, Chico’s! If you’re looking for a shirt that you can wear for a long time, even when football season is over, this no-iron, stretch shirt is perfect! I love the red, but it also comes in navy, teal, and yellow. And while Chico’s is a little pricier than some of the others, the quality will be top-notch.

More fun earrings! Game-day looks are meant to be loud. You’re cheering for your favorite team so this is not the time to be shy and quiet. Have fun with your style by putting on a great pair of earrings that says, “LET’S GO!” At only $8 dollars, you can afford to have fun.

The Best Game Day Looks For Fall – Graphic Tee

Even if you don’t have a team to cheer, you can get in on the fun with one of these graphic tees. I love this because it’s great for every game event. You don’t have to choose sides, lol. The leopard print football is chic and stylish and under $30 dollars!

I love this gameday sweatshirt! It is cute and cozy and would be perfect on those fall nights sitting outside watching my son’s team play. It comes in a lot of colors and is just $27 dollars. Pick the color of your team, or just wear it in a neutral color and cheer for whoever is winning!

The Best Game Day Looks For Fall – Clear Stadium Bags

If you’ve been to a concert or large sporting event lately, you’ve probably already seen that you need to carry a clear bag. Yes, you can see everything that is inside the bag, and that is kind of the point. Here are a few that got good ratings.

    Love the casual game day looks! Comfy and very trendy. I’m really liking the button down shirts with jeans and a tee shirt for fall.
    Loved your story about Joe. I pray for my words to be seasoned with grace many times a day. It’s so much easier to snap back or give someone a hurtful remark. Trying my to be more like Jesus. ❤️

    1. Deborah, I wish I always chose to say the right thing.

  10. Great colors! I do have a passion for the NAVY Blue and Gold…..

  17. Ginger Hiller says:

  19. Mary Carol says:

    Love your hair in that photo…it’s sassy and cute.
    I graduated from college in 1984, so I’m in the same era as Joe.
    The football t shirts are really cool. Can’t do orange for some reason. It’s just never been my color. I think our Texas Aggies play your Tennessee Volunteers.

  20. Stella Gustafson says:

    I love the outfits especially for here in Florida I think any of these would work. My niece is in the Florida Gators Band so there’s your Orange. My high school colors are Orange and Black Cocoa Tigers. And my small town I live in now Friday Football is a Big thing Red and Black. So you covered all the colors
    I am not to much of a Pro Football fan but my husband Pro team is Red Orange. Black.

  21. Great game day picks! love the red maxi dress, I wish Amazon would provide more petite length options!

  22. Thanks for all the game day outfits. I especially love the red Chico’s shirt and the ‘Tis’ the Season t-shirt. My little granddaughter is a cheerleader – even tho’ its not a college team, I still like to wear their colors or a football tee.

  23. Love the throwback picture. I happened upon your blog in 2016 from Pinterest. I remember that hair and the plunder jewelry which, at the time, was a very big thing in my area.

  24. Mary Ruth Harden says:

    I happened to be in Nashville on a game day. Never seen so much orange! on girl I took notice of was wearing a cute gingham dress. Thanks for the ideas.

  25. Kellie Johnson says:

    Love the red shirt from Amazon and the red sweater. I am an Ohio State fan so red or scarlet is my color for football season.

  26. Brenda Summersgill says:

    Red – Roll Tide!

  27. Tania – I live in a university town, so school colors are all over. Orange and Blue (navy). I go for the blue because I look horrid in orange. Perfect football weather here is 50-60 degrees but it can get down in the thirties so many of your cute tops would be covered up with heavier gear. Loved the ideas, though. Really thinking about that Tis the Season sweatshirt. Thanks for all your hard work.

    1. Living in a college town sounds like fun. Yes I love this sweatshirt to.

  28. Cherie Flanagan says:

    Love Philippians 4:6
    Thank you for the game day suggestions. Keep up the good work.


  29. Very cute orange and red tops. The leopard football T-shirt is too cute. My grandson plays tag football. I need to get it and wear it at his games.

  30. Stacey Schauer says:

    Well, I’m a Denver Bronco fan, so I am loving all the orange! 🙂

  31. Jenniffer says:

    LOVE the white shirt and the orange sweater!!

  32. I have been looking for something to wear for Duke football games (our son in law works for Duke Irons, Go Blue Devils!) I think one of the colors of the crew neck cardigan may work, with a white tank and jeans as you suggest. I am going to order it, fingers crossed. It would also work with white jeans as well.
    Thank you for your posts. Love to see what you suggest.

    1. That sounds like an awesome outfit! Thanks for commenting!😊

  33. Cheryll Sampson says:

    Auburn all the way! Can’t beat that blue and Orange and stripes like Aubie!

  34. Love all the jean selections in today’s post. Those magenta colored flares are adorable. Chico’s no-iron shirts are staples for me. Thanks and have a great weekend!

  35. Ann Seely says:

    I love that you included a dress! That one and some cowboy boots would be perfect for a game when the weather did not get the “cool down STAT” memo!

    Oh, and BOOMER SOONER 🙂

  36. great options, thanks for sharing.

  37. Cute game Day shirt and good idea! Wish I’d seen it last week!!

  43. I like the knot tied on that orange shirt–I’ve tried to do those and failed!!!

  44. Loved your TN tshirt but they didn’t have anything similar for Ole Miss. ☹️ The gameday sweatshirt is super cute too. Also, maybe it’s just me but the Wal-Mart shirt link didn’t work. Thanks for the fun post!

  46. Linda Shearer says:

    Thank You for all these cute football looks and the clear bags which you have to have here now even for high school games. One slight correction though to your post Oklahoma wears crimson and Oklahoma State wears orange, Go Pokes. Loved all the orange sweaters and they are already in my amazon bag.

    1. I’m glad you like the post. Thanks for letting me know.

  47. Just a lil FYI – Oklahoma colors are crimson and cream not orange. Oklahoma State is orange and black.

  48. Elizabeth Ty says:

    Such cute options. Sadly college football is not as big in the North but these are fabulous. Several things I am eyeing to add to my casual wardrobe.

  49. The Walmart shirt is on sale! Yay!

  50. I have been eyeing that Loft cardigan. That ‘game day’ sweatshirt is so cute! I’m so glad you find these things for us!

  51. Game day is my happy place! Wanted to give a heads up – Oklahoma STATE (my alma mater – GO Pokes) is orange not the other school🤠🤠🤠🤠. I have several orange items, especially the great sweaters from this post, coming my way! As we like to say at OK State “Orange Power!”

    1. I’m so glad that you found something that you liked in this post! ❤️

  52. Glad you found some green for my Baylor Bears and maroon for my husband’s Texas A&M Aggies. So many cute options with so many colors. Thanks for the post. And I thought the picture of you in the email was beautiful!

    1. Laura, I am so happy that you found something that you enjoyed in this post! 😊

  53. Uh oh! If my hubs had read this he would have a fit! Saying Oklahoma (ou) is Orange ! Total sacrilege! Haha! Oklahoma State is Orange! OU fans hate OSU! I went to both colleges, so I ride the fence!
