5 DIYs To Amp Up Your Game Day Outfit
Julianne Cornell

We all want to amp up our game day outfits. Today, the plain sweatshirt and leggings look, or t-shirt and jeans look, just doesn’t seem to cut it. However, no one wants to spend a ton of money buying new clothes every gameday to change it up. Here are five ways you can amp up your typical gameday outfit to make it a little trendier and different, and all on your own for a reasonable price!

1. Patches

Adding patches to a shirt can totally change a shirt you already have and boost it up a little. Take a t-shirt, any t-shirt, whether it’s a plain-colored one, or a school one. Then, go to your local art store or even bookstore and buy some patches. Once you have your shirt and patches, iron or glue them onto it! You can add patches to sweatshirts, pants, and jackets as well! Don't be afraid to add them to literally anything.

Whether it’s your school logo patch, or even a random avocado or lips patch, any patch will look cute. They add some extra school spirit and change up your outfit a little to make it more interesting, fun, and not to mention trendy.


2. Cutting clothing

Although cutting clothing can sometimes be intimidating, do not be afraid to do it! Taking an old t-shirt, or sweatshirt and cutting it up a little can completely change its look. You can crop it, add slashes and cuts to it, or completely change the style of it. For example, you can change a t-shirt to make it a halter tank, or even make it tie in the front. The possibilities are endless, so don't be afraid! And, if you mess up there are plenty of ways to make it look cute and changing your unintentional mistake to an intentional trend!


3. Fishnets

A very popular trend for all clothing this fall is fishnets. Fishnets can be worn under anything or over anything. There are plenty of ways to wear fishnets that can change up your look. Additionally, they are pretty cheap. Get a pair of fishnets from Amazon in your school's color, wear them under a pair of your favorite boyfriend jeans and they are bound to change your look making it trendier and fun. You can even get a fishnet shirt and add your school's logo on it by cutting a t-shirt and layering it over.


4. Layering

Layering is completely underrated. Cut some of your favorite fabrics, flannel, or anything fabric in the color of your school and sewing it under a pair of your ripped jeans can add so much to your outfit. Or, you can layer a t-shirt on top of a patterned long sleeve!

There are a ton of ways you can layer your clothes to change up what you’re wearing. Plus, if you go to a cold school like the University of Wisconsin, any layer means more warmth, and we can all use that here in Madison.


5. Jackets

Although I sometimes hesitate to wear a jacket on game day because I want to show off my outfit, they are completely underrated as well. A jacket can actually make your outfit look better. Take an old jean jacket and add patches, or wear your school-colored jean jacket on top and it can totally make a difference.

You can also find fun and cheap bomber jackets with your school color that can add to your outfit as well. Don't be afraid to wear a jacket because not only does it keep you warm, but it truly does add some style to your outfit.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
