It’s that time of year again…time for homecoming!! Woohoo! I can’t put into words how excited I am for this year’s homecoming game/weekend. Why am I so excited, you ask? Well, because it is my last homecoming! Everything is ready to go for this weekend – plans have been made, outfits have been planned…it’s all ready to go and this will be the best year ever.
I may be getting a little off track…now to what I actually want to tell you about today. Last week, I detailed women’s homecoming fashion and what to wear for the various events that go along with homecoming (parties, tailgates, the game itself…) and different types of weather! This week, I will be discussing…
Men’s Homecoming Fashion.
I’m sure many men don’t give their outfit a second thought when it comes to football – who cares about style when the game is on, right? Wrong. Although you are at a football game, or at the tailgate party…you should have some kind of school spirit somewhere on you, and it doesn’t hurt to dress for the occasion as well! Besides, there are right and wrong things to wear to a football game…even if it is super casual style! Just wait…you will see what I mean…
Tailgating in Style. Okay, so I know that what you wear is not your top priority when partying it up at the tailgate…but you may want to keep these tips in mind when dressing yourself for the event. Why? Well, because you want to look great, don’t you!!
I am obsessed with men’s khaki shorts. I know, it’s is strange, but true. I just think that they are such a good option for men if they don’t feel like wearing pants!! The long-sleeved shirt and shorts look is a favourite of mine as well – especially for Fall. This outfit will keep you semi-warm for the cool Fall weather, and still have you looking sharp for the tailgate!! I threw the drawstring bag in there as a way to carry any game necessities you might need!
Cheering them to the Win. Homecoming can take place anywhere from mid-September to late October…and depending on what time the game is set, it may be a little nippy outside, or it could be sweltering hot! It’s important to dress for the weather, and with this look, you will be all set to go – no matter rain or shine!!
This is one of my about its casual looks for men. Casual is just as good as dressed up, in my opinion. At a football game, you want to be comfortable and what’s more comfortable then chucks, jeans and a cozy half-zip? With or without the scarf, this look is stylish and laid back, so cheering your team on can be you number one priority!
Victory Party Time. If you didn’t dress your best for the tailgate or the game, this is your time to shine. This is the look that matters, because this is most likely where you will be trying (more or less) to be interactive, meet people and look your best, of course!! Whether you are heading to a party, going downtown to the bars, or just hanging out with a few people after the game, you want to be looking sharp!
This is a great going out look. Yes, the sweater may be a little casual, however, you can always switch that out for a blazer, or if the setting is right, simply leave the additional piece at home and just work the black v-neck for the night! I want to highlight these shoes before I move on…penny loafers may seem like an older style, but I looove them! They are so classic and debonair – I definitely approve and recommend all men give them a try. If I see one more male wear a pair of New Balance shoes to the bar…not cool.
Well, there you go! You have your three common and classy looks for homecoming. The ladies will love you, you’ll be dressed to impress and be totally on your game (while watching the game…)! Although you may not consider homecoming to be the high fashion event of the year, it definitely is the time to bring out the nice clothing and look your best…why not start the year off with a good look?
