Sense of Style: Touchdown in the Ellen

Untitled design (12).jpg

It’s football season and you know what that means...time to tailgate in Two Blind Brothers style. 

In one of our recent style guides, we put together the perfect back to school outfit for your first day of classes. But we know being in college isn’t all about class (still, hit those books kids). During the fall at many big schools across the country there is no bigger social activity than football. Come Saturday it’s time to tailgate and fill up on good food and good fun before kickoff. So we thought, “why not put together an outfit for a tailgate?” This look is UVA centric, obviously (because we’re loyal alum), but with a simple tweak or two, it’s the perfect outfit for any autumn event.

Not in college anymore? Not to worry, this is a great look to for fall alum events when you want wear your college colors (and in some cases, pretend like you’re back in school)...for example, when supporting your dear Cavaliers from afar perhaps.

As always, this look starts with one of our amazingly comfortable Two Blind Brothers’ shirts. This week, the Ellen is on full display. The soft white v-neck is one of our favorites. Don’t worry too much about spilling wing sauce on it, TBB shirts wash off notoriously well. A reliable pair of light blue jeans will do the trick. As of now, the high waist is still in, so go for it if you have a pair.

The heart of this look is all in the accessories. A pumpkin orange bag will hold your belongings during the game or it will just give the look an extra burst of color. It is starting to cool down, so we included a really fun scarf in this look. A pattern design will probably be your best bet for adding another dimension to this look. Try and stick with some browns and oranges for the designs, blue is a nice compliment as well. The crown jewel of this outfit is a pair of UVA smoking slippers, we understand if you don’t have a pair laying around, but if you do, throw ‘em on and show off your college pride! Wahoowa!
