Your Guide To Mixed-Weather Tailgating Attire

Early this semester, we gave you a guide to crafting the perfect tailgating outfit. But how exactly are you supposed to dress for the unforgiving, mid-October Happy Valley weather with highs in the 70s and lows in the 40s? Lucky for you, we’ve got your back.

Here’s a guide for you on how to dress sensibly for tomorrow’s game, while still looking cute.

Girls

Flannels/Jean Jackets

Over the course of the past couple of years, 90s fashion has seen a reemergence. Two of the most popular trends that have resurfaced are flannels and jean jackets. They’ll be especially helpful this weekend to keep you warm when the weather’s chilly, and they’re easy to take off if it gets a bit sunny. Keep in mind, they’re cutest when oversized.

Off-The-Shoulder Sweatshirt

Sensible yet sweet. All it takes to create this look is a pair of scissors and an old Penn State sweatshirt. By simply cutting off the top of the shirt, you get a cute top that’s still practical and warm.

High-Socks and Booties

This is one of the more obvious go-to’s for the weekend, but it’s still worth mentioning. Booties and Penn State socks can keep you warmer than a pair of dirty converse. Fall is upon us ladies, so it’s time to pull up those bootstraps (literally). Plus the warmer your feet feel, the warmer you’ll feel.

Penn State Leggings

While the time for cheerleading skirts may have, unfortunately, passed, there are still plenty of opportunities for you to embrace that Penn State spirit. One of the cutest trends to hit Beaver Stadium this football season is the emergence of the Penn State-themed blue leggings. They’d go great paired with a White Out T-shirt for a little contrast.

Funky Jeans

No one can go wrong with denim and jean pants are the perfect way to look cute, while still keeping those legs covered! It doesn’t matter if they’re ripped, two-toned, patched, or just left alone. Jeans can transform a simple top into an adorable outfit all by themselves.

Layers

On a final note, layers most certainly need to be a staple of your attire this weekend. With temperatures in the 50s and/or 70s, it’s important that you stock up on those layers so that you can make adjustments as necessary.

There’s arguably no greater pain than being poorly prepared for a day of tailgating with a 7:30 p.m. kickoff time. As James Franklin would likely be caught tweeting, “Layers, Layers, Layers, Layers.” And if you follow the above advice, you’ll be able to look cute, while still dressing for the weather.

Guys

Jerseys with sweatshirts underneath

Yep. No matter the weather, boys are always rocking those jerseys. Except with colder weather, a sweatshirt can be added for an extra layer of warmth. Think about it.
