Whether you’re a longtime NFL or NCAA football fan, or are just getting interested in the sport due to a certain hot celebrity pairing, I’ll let you in on a little secret: pre-game tailgating is one of the best parts of attending a professional or college football game.
A great tailgate is composed of tasty snacks, fun drinks, a game or two, and great company–but you’ve of course got to look the part, as well. We’ve broken the tailgate wardrobe essentials down for you, so whether you’re new to the party or simply wish to refresh your closet for the season ahead, we’ve got you covered when it comes to team spirit, functionality and comfort.
New Era Cap’s latest NFL Sidelines collection features styles that the players themselves wear, so you can channel your favorite athlete. And since this hat is available for all 32 NFL teams, you can rep yours in style.
When Taylor Swift wore this stylish windbreaker to the Kansas City Chiefs game on Oct. 12, it immediately sold out. Pre-order the very same one above, or find the style with your favorite NFL team’s logo here.
Not only are cargo jeans super trendy, they’re also incredibly functional for tailgates and game days. If you’d rather not lug a clear bag into the stadium post-tailgate, you can stuff the essentials into your pants pockets.
Nothing beats a comfortable and sporty sneaker on game days.
Finding a cute, stadium-compliant bag is tricky, but SHEERGEAR makes the task simple. Available in different colors, you can even customize the brand’s fanny packs and crossbody bags. Plus, the line is beloved by SI Swimsuit model Christen Harper.
