BCS Championship Style for FSU Fans
Blogger and Florida State Seminoles fan Brittnee Taylor Newman of The Dadgum Debutante knows two things really well: football and fashion. Obviously, she has serious stake in Monday night's 2014 BCS National Championship game and aside from team pride, she's bursting with style inspiration for fellow FSU fans.
Gameday attire has far outgrown tank tops and cutoffs, creating its own fanbase and growing faster than the speed of a no-huddle offense. The challenge of dressing for a game is never trickier than during bowl season, when football parties are mixed in with formal holiday soirees and (let’s be honest here) you’re tired of recycling the same sundresses since August.
For FSU fans, the challenge is even taller: what in the world will you be wearing when Famous Jameis brings the long-awaited crystal trophy back to Tally?! Here are three suggestions for putting a new spin on your classic garnet and gold:
The Nine-to-Five Nole
Where to Wear It: At the office, your boss' BCS party or in the luxury boxes at the Rose Bowl.
There’s no reason you can’t let your fan-flag fly at the office on January 6th (especially if you work with Florida Gators!). Just find office-appropriate ways to do it and keep it minimal. Pin this crystal FSU pendant to your lapel to show off your alumni association with a little sparkle. No promises on whether it will help keep your mind off the game during Monday morning meetings!
Get This Outfit: FSU Seminoles NCAA Rhinestone Pin, FSU Seminoles NCAA Rhinestone Earrings, The Convertible Sleeve Portofino Shirt, Studio Stretch Pencil Skirt
Rock ‘n Nole
Where to Wear It: Watch party, FSU alumni event downtown or for singing the national anthem at the game.
Go renegade with these vegan-leather pants from H&M, a garnet fedora and some serious lip. Throw in these gorgeous (and super comfortable) garnet and gold striped flats from Lillybee U flats, sleek garnet and gold jewelry, and you’re all set to rock the mic—or maybe just the bar.
Get This Outfit:
The Convertible Sleeve Portofino Shirt, Imitation Leather Pants, Mossimo Oxblood Hat, Florida State University Flats, MAC Cosmetics Lipstick in Studded Kiss
Where to Wear It: Pasadena, California
Make like a local and let your inner flower child bloom. A flowy, mustard gold top pairs perfectly with garnet leggings and Seminole logo earrings. These leather flats from Target will make the long hours of tailgating a breeze and the aged, distressed look of the leather is seriously cute!
