Game day style plan: These tailgating looks are winning
Game day is the perfect opportunity to step up your fashion game.
Let this football season lend an all new meaning to “Sunday’s best” attire: We’re talking about an outfit that is comfy enough you can toss the pigskin around at a tailgating party, and stylish enough you’ll actually want to get caught by the Jumbo-tron cameras.
No matter who you’re cheering for this football season, here’s how to bring your style A-game to the next tailgating party.
Good luck charm:
Football fans can be a superstitious bunch — especially those rooting for the Baltimore Ravens, Arizona Cardinals and New Orleans Saints, according to a “superstition study” a couple years back that was conducted by Bud Light and KRC Research. The study also found that 42 percent of female Buccaneers fans wear a lucky article of clothing on game day, which is twice as much as their male counterparts.
Blend your superstition and style with a good luck charm. Pandora, one of our fave jewelry makers, has teamed up with the National Football League for NFL-licensed helmet charms. They’re made with sterling silver and 14K gold and can be strung on a charm bracelet or be a sporty addition to a necklace chain.

Scarf it up:
As we celebrate the fall equinox and crisper autumn days, keep cozy in your fan gear by adding on layers. We love how a scarf can play double duty: Keeping your neck warm (hey, you need to protect those fight song-singing vocal chords) while also looking stylish. No matter what team logo you’re wearing on your T-shirt or sweatshirt, loop around a cable knit infinity scarf in a shade that complements your team’s colors or don a neutral color one. This fall style staple comes in fresh colors like a chartreuse “pressed olive” and teal “kelp forest” as well as neutral stand-bys like “creme de la creme” and grey.

Comfy denim paired with a fan T-shirt and a flannel tied around your waist is an easy and stylish game day outfit formula. Denim is getting even more comfy this season with the “Denim X” jeans at American Eagle. The retailer is billing them as their best fit ever, with a high-performance stretch that’s soft and will show off your assets. These slightly destructed jeans with an indigo wash have a tomboy-ish look that’s just right for game day. American Eagle is also offering free shipping on Flex & Denim X jeans for a limited time to ShopAtHome.com shoppers. AEO Denim X Jegging, $49.95 (plus Cash Back), Ae.com.
