6 Ideas for the Perfect Tailgating Outfit

Football season is upon us! It is time for cheering on your favorite team and tailgating. With football being in the fall and winter months, it can be a little cool out there. You may even encounter some rain or snow. If you are unsure of what to wear the next time you go tailgating, here are 6 ideas to put together the perfect outfit.


  1. Team Colors:

This is a fairly easy one. No matter the weather, you can rock your team colors. Whether it is warm enough out to wear short sleeves or if it is cool to where you need to wear a sweatshirt – just rock your team colors. You can put on some face paint or a temporary tattoo and accessorize appropriately.

  1. Create Your Own:

If you are of the crafty type, you can create your own gear to wear tailgating. Get some team iron on patches or puff paint/fabric paint and create your own sweatshirt, decorate some jeans, etc. Show off your team pride with your own unique creation. You could even get together with some of your friends ahead of time and have an outfit decorating party.

  1. Get Matchy:

Get together with some of your friends and plan on matching outfits. Putting together matching team spirit outfits will make you stand out on game day.

  1. Wear Your Jersey:

One of the quickest ways to show your team spirit is by wearing your team’s jersey. Jersey’s are fairly versatile as you can wear as is or put a long sleeve shirt or sweatshirt underneath if it is a bit cool outside.

  1. Get Sporty With Accessories:

If you don’t have much else, you can show team support through accessories. A lot of teams sell accessories with their team logo on it like: Scarves, Hats, Mittens, Pom Poms, Raincoats, Umbrellas – whatever you need you can typically find.

  1. Do You:

Not everyone has team gear or wants to wear it – even if they are big fans of football or a particular team. Just rock what you already have into a cute outfit. It could be a great flannel and leggings, a shirt that says game day with some jeans, or if the weather permits, a t-shirt dress with a little jean jacket.


Tailgating is about having fun, expressing yourself and supporting your team. As you can see, with these ideas you don’t need to worry about your outfit – just do you. Enjoy watching your team play and cheer them on! Go team!
