Fashion: Gearing Up For Game Day
By Brittani Leblanc
Nothing says fall in the South like college game day, so I partnered with Krush Boutique, in Shreveport, to give you some fabulous outfit inspiration that really shows off your school spirit.
These looks are based on five colleges located around north Louisiana, but with a little tweaking, you can easily transform any of these ideas into an outfit that flaunts your own school pride.
You may or may not know LSU has been re-branding so that every LSU entity has the same school colors in order to be identified together. LSU and LSU Shreveport can both be represented with this adorable dress I put model, Cristina Rivera, in. Dresses like these are perfect for game day. The knee-length hem keeps you cool and comfortable without having to worry about showing too much leg. Combine it with an easy-to-walk-in pair of flat sandals and a cute necklace, and you’ve got a simple, yet classic look.
Sport your Warhawk pride in the University of Louisiana at Monroe school colors, maroon and gold. A flowy top and comfy, open-knit cardigan are perfect for nighttime games when the temperature may get a little cooler. Top the look off with adorably boho accessories, and you’re all set for some quality time in the stands.
How fun is this black and gold graphic tank? This color combo is chic and spirited when it comes to the Tigers at Grambling State University. A pair of sparkly gold loafers bring some glam to your feet, and a cuff on your wrist adds interest to bare arms.
Cristina is representing Northwestern State University adorably in these ruffled purple shorts. They’re super breezy for days when the sun is beating down on you and the Demons are beating their opponents.
Fight! Fight! Fight! For ol’ red and blue in this cute little outfit for the LA Tech Bulldogs. Tying a comfy flannel around your waist ensures the fashionable factor for this look while also giving you a backup plan in case things get chilly. Sperry’s or any lace-up shoe will provide tons of comfort when you’re jumping up and down in the stands.
Lastly, you know I had to give a shout out to my own Alma Mater, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Although I don’t have an outfit to show for it, I’ll continue forever to exhibit school spirit because we are #LafayetteStrong. Give ‘em hell, UL!
A huge thank you to Krush Boutique located at 4801 Line Ave. in the Pierremont Mall for allowing me to pull from and show off your large selection of fashionable game day pieces
