Much like school reunions, college football games are a great time to tap into your spirited, younger self and showcase your super-evolved, successful present self. In both cases you need to look effortlessly put-together, but for a football game you also have the unique challenge of creating a walking-friendly look that's casual enough for the venue. Don't stress: here are two surefire outfits that will not only be appreciated by your old roommates, but will also send your college crushes spinning! Must-Try Look #1: Athletic-inspired top + cropped jeans + pointy flats. Now, by "athletic top," we don't mean a sports jersey! Instead, embrace the sporty trend seen all over the runways and find a flattering, relevant top that plays perfectly to this occasion. That can mean a contrast-stripe t-shirt, a baseball-inspired crewneck, or even a letterman-style tee or sweater. We also love a thin, slightly shrunken sweatshirt that sits just above your waistline; just be sure to push or roll the sleeves up. Add cropped jeans-look for a skinny, clean silhouette in medium blue, dark blue, or black-that fit perfectly and are cropped or cuffed to show your ankles, and comfy but totally French-chic pointy flats. Must-Try Look #2: Plaid flannel + cords + penny loafers. Nothing says "fall football game" like a plaid flannel shirt; it's a classic piece that comes back in style every year. We like the idea of a Western-style top or something with buffalo checks, and feel free to layer a cabin-inspired sweater over your plaid shirt if you need some extra warmth. As for your pants, go for some "Yay! It's fall!" cords in a washed-and-worn neutral, like dove gray or cream, or if you prefer color, try mustard, bordeaux, or navy. The final touch? Penny loafers! They may feel scholastically ironic, but in the most fashionable way-we promise. Classic brown is a no-fail option, but we've also been charmed by deep reds, blues, and metallics too. Just pick whatever feels best on your feet and you'll be ready to Go! Fight! Win!
