What To Wear To The Florida State/Oklahoma State Game at AT&T Stadium

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

College football kicks off this weekend at AT&T Stadium with the Advocare Cowboys Classic featuring top-ranked Florida State and Oklahoma State.

You can dress up at AT&T Stadium. In fact, it's expected. Don't wear a jersey with ratty jeans, a ruffly FSU t-shirt dress or an OSU shirt with bows all over it. We're covering what to wear and what to say if you're heading to the game and don't really give a rat's ass about football but want to sound like you know a thing or two about the matchup.

Perhaps my favorite bag from the line is the Stadium Crossbody which is perfect for college games but also small enough to carry into any NFL stadium. It's not a just a cutie. It has three interior pockets to hold your money and credit cards as well as an exterior one to store your tickets or sunglasses.

Here's the kicker: you can customize these bags in your university's favorite colors! Their website allows you to select a bag, choose your school's colors and select your favorite pattern. (Full disclosure: for North Texas, I chose Tulane's colors. Still works!)

Even better? You can personalize each bag with your initials.

Every bag is custom made and will be shipped to you in about 10-14 days. Mine came quicker than expected.

Top 5 Football Fashion Faux Pas

We’ve focused on what to wear to football games but what about what not to wear? Nix these from your gameday wardrobe so you don’t look like a football fashion rookie.
what not to wear, college football, nfl, what to wear to a football game

Stilettos or CFM Shoes
If you have A-list parking and suite tickets heels are fine because you won't be traipsing across concrete to get into the stadium. But if you're not a member of the 1%, don't wear hoochie shoes. You'll stumble, fall and look like you're trying too hard. Go with a wedge shoe or flats.

Tight Clothing 
If you can go to a game, avoid the fat-laden snacks and not drink, God bless you. If you are like the rest of us, don't look like a stuffed sausage on gameday. Wear clothes that are on the loose side. Think about it: you'll likely be drinking and eating food you'd never eat during the week. How did sausage balls become a tailgating staple? I digress. Gameday food, combined with tigght clothing is a fashion malfunction form of a split seam waiting to happen. Trust me. It's happened to yours truly. Don't wear a muumuu but err on the side of wearing something that allows you to breathe.

Drag Queen Makeup
Leave the spackle-like foundation and false lashes at home. When it's hot you'll sweat it off and have raccoon eyes from too much eye makeup. When it's cold, it just feels heavy. Apply your makeup with a light hand. Go with soft concealer (this is a pro makeup artist friend of mine's favorite) and tinted BB cream. Top it with mascara, subtle eye shadow, blush and longlasting lip gloss. Here are more secrets to long-lasting makeup

Kitchen Sink Handbags
Unless you're trying to smuggle booze into a game, a small crossbody bag is the way to go. You'll want to have your hands free to clap and hold your cocktail. A ginormous bag will get in the way. You also need to take into account that most college stadiums are adopting NFL-like purse policies, which means bigger-than-offensive-lineman-bags don't work.

Mini Skirts
If you do a 2-hour tailgate plus a 3-hour game and then drinks afterward, chances are you'll be more than delightfully tipsy. Schnockered and short skirts don't mix. It's a recipe for a Paris Hilton Flash The World moment that no one wants to see.

From Tory Burch, J. Crew and Ralph Lauren to Chanel, Prada and Herm├Ęs you can wear the latest looks fresh from the runway on SMU gamedays and fit right in. Fans attending the games dress up, look like a million bucks and expect you, too, as well.

In fact, Gerald J Ford Stadium is the only one (and I have been to a lot of them) that I have seen have a sponsor selling fine jewelry on the club levels. When we had season tickets Dallas jeweler Bachendorf's (whom I love...they did my wedding ring) sold luxury jewelry on the club level.

About SMU in 2014
The Mustangs went 5-7 in 2013 and missed a bowl game for the first time since 2008.

Redshirt freshman Neal Burcham will succeed Garrett Gilbert as the Mustangs starting quarterback. He started two games last season when Gilbert suffered a knee injury going and was 51-of-86 for 434 yards passing, one touchdown, three interceptions and eight sacks. Ouch.

SMU opens the season against Baylor in Waco on August 30th. The Mustangs have a tough non-conference schedule with TCU and Texas A&M on tap. Click here for the full SMU schedule.

Not to stereotype but guys have it easy when it comes to dressing for college football games.

They can get away with throwing on a t-shirt or golf shirt, adding a pair of jeans, maybe a baseball hat and they're good to go.

Still, finding cool t-shirts can be tough. I love everything about 47 Brand's fashion-forward take on gameday style. When it come to a more refined look. Peter Millar gets it right every time.
