Football season is finally here. The stress of registering for tickets is over, the first few weeks of classes are behind us, and it's time for us to let the Dawgs out. Our team is going to bring it on the field, and it's our job to bring it in the stands!
We southerners know that game day is the time to pull out all the stops with our style. If you're a new Dawg, or if you're trying to boost your style game from last season, I have a few tips for you:
For The Ladies...
1. Red, Black and White Sundresses
This is a game day classic. Sundresses keep you cool while you're in the stands being your hot self. Show your Bulldog pride with some school colors!
2. UGA Jerseys
UGA football jerseys double as cute, sporty dresses for game day. If you're tall (like me) and want to avoid a wardrobe malfunction, rock it as a shirt. Go Dawgs!
3. Temporary Tattoos
Want to showcase your team spirit with a little flair? Temporary tattoos are the way to go! There are multiple UGA logos to choose from, and they are under $5! Bonus: if you're feeling fancy, add some red lipstick to complete your look.
4. Cowgirl Boots
We southern ladies LOVE our boots. They go with dresses, shorts, jerseys, rompers, and anything else you could possible wear to a game. There is no such thing as too much sass in the stands!
5. Georgia Themed Jewelry
UGA themed jewelry is a game day staple. You can never go wrong with chunky jewelry in red, black or white. If you like more understated pieces, there are several stores in downtown Athens that sell simple pendants in the shape of the state of Georgia!
6. Rompers in UGA Colors
Rompers are a cute alternative to sundresses for game day. If skirts aren't your thing, but you still want to be a little fancy, give a romper a try!
7. Sun Hats
If you want to avoid getting burned and look classy while doing it, top off your game day look with a sunhat. You go, southern lady!
For the Gentlemen...
8. School Color Button Down and Polo Shirts
I appreciate a good t-shirt, but game day is the time to take it to the next level. Button downs and polo shirts are a tried and true classic.
Standard khakis are always a good choice. If you really want to showcase your Dawg pride, the bookstore has UGA themed khakis in multiple colors. Go on. You know you want to give them a try.
10. UGA Themed Ties
For Ladies and Gentlemen...
11. Superfan Status
If none of the above options show enough UGA spirit for your taste, join the ranks of The Superfans. Break out the body paint, the crazy wigs, and the UGA themed accessories. Get right up next to the field and show how proud you are to be a Dawg! Who knows? You might become game day famous!
