What did y’all think about Outfit #1 of the 3 Ways to Wear a Red Sweater styling challenge? It was perfect for a casual day…but how do we dress it up for AM meetings? Come on, I’ll show you!
To change up Outfit #1, I traded the dark cords for a vibrant, floral pencil skirt, swapped the scarf for handmade earrings and necklace, and hopped into a pair of gold wedges for a look that is sure to make you stand out at the next office meeting. *wink*

Can you feel it? The spirit is in the air! Pep rallies and tailgating-crowds cheering and cowbells ringing-Oh, my goodness! I am so pumped to get dolled up in school colors and attend the first game of the season. The VIP will be sporting sheer tops, wide-leg trousers, flirty dresses, cute cardigans, and team-colored accessories this football season. Please join me, my sports loving, team supporting fashionistas, on this school spirit fashion adventure as I demonstrate how to dress comfortable and GO TEAM adorable!
Putting together a savvy, team-spirited outfit can be tricky-unless you are one of those guys that paint your chests with various team colors and letters. Then dressing for the game is rather simple and no doubt messy; however, I am no expert on body painting, and it may be rather complicated and time consuming. Don’t you just get a chuckle when you see those guys standing in the wrong order-all the letters out-of-sorts-bless! I digress.
For all the red, white, and blue team out there, I have put together an outfit dedicated to you! The tricky thing about red, white, and blue is not looking too patriotic or American “flagish”. An easy way to maneuver past this is wearing wide-leg blue trousers and a sheer white blouse with a red spaghetti tank underneath. Don’t forget the accessories! Red high heels and a red beaded statement necklace will add a little bit of spice and not July 4th to this outfit!
Maroon and white fans, I have a little something special for you. The trick to carrying off maroon and white or crimson and white is embracing a solid and punching it up with the right accessories. I chose to add spirit to a short in the front, long in the back maroon dress by piling on a mix of black and pearl necklaces and adding a charming bracelet in those same colors. Don’t forget the importance of a darling shoe! White patent wedges are the perfect choice to carry this cowbell ringing outfit from pep rally to a 5th Quarter party!
