This is a real hard wardrobe call. What to wear to a football game. Especially when it's so hot, as it is wont to do in the South for SEC games. I see it all the time. Women dressed in clown colors, and worse, in men's jerseys. There is a huge caveat: high school football and below, wear the heck out of your son's (or daughter's) jersey and paint your face and cheer/scream the whole game. Once you graduate to the NFL, let's all dress like adults. Except unless your son is playing in a National Football League game, then you can do whatever you want. Mkay cupcakes?

So let's look at some gameday outfits that are oh so team spirit-worthy without scaring the children.
I like going casual for football games. So jeans or cords are fine. But your top needs to be kind of nice. If your team colors are black and red, how about a buffalo check button-down with dark blue jeans? If you're colors are purple and gold, how about a purple top with maybe big gold hoops (earrings)? You gettin' the idea?
What about your handbag or clutch? You do not want to get caught at the gate with one that's too big! The official NFL site gives the measurements you're allowed to carry in with you:
Fans may carry clear plastic tote bags up to 12x6x12 inches, one-gallon plastic freezer bags (so stylish!) or clutches no larger than 4.5x6.5 inches.
All you need is a place to hold your phone, lip gloss, driver's license and cards, and possibly mints. No need for your sunglasses case to fit - it won't - only bring them if you plan to wear them the whole game.
Happy shopping and thank you for visiting.
