Hey y’all-hope you’ve had a great week! Thank goodness it’s Friday. Today I am featuring a long overdue game day style post. A Clemson jersey is one of the most versatile things I can wear to a Clemson game. Depending on how I style it, I can wear it to a warm early season game, or a chilly late season game. A Clemson jersey is an especially great option to wear to October games. Here in the South, it can be anywhere from 80 degrees to 50 degrees in October. Plus, time of day makes a huge difference in how it feels outside. Ironically, this is the first October in five years that I will not be going to any Clemson football games. Nevertheless, I still want to share some snapshots of styling a Clemson jersey for game day!
PS. Even if you aren’t a Clemson fan, this post can still be applicable to styling a jersey for your favorite college football team.

Authentic Nike Clemson Jersey
I highly recommend investing in an authentic Nike Clemson jersey (or your team of choice). Sure they are pricier, but the quality is excellent. You can buy cheaper ones on eBay, but they aren’t authentic, and the color and quality simply aren’t there. I have a couple different Nike Clemson jerseys, and have had them each for at least a couple years. They are still in amazing condition. Fanatics is a great online retailer to get authentic jerseys for a variety of teams, including Clemson. I have a Deshaun Watson jersey, which you can shop here. NCAA regulations prohibit the names of current college players from appearing on the back of the jerseys. But since Deshaun Watson has graduated, you can buy a Nike Jersey with his name. I also have a #16 Clemson jersey, which you can shop here. Note that these jersey’s are men’s sizes, and the fit is generous.

Skinny Jeans and Cowgirl Boots
If it’s a warm early season game, you can easily wear shorts with your Clemson jersey. However, skinny jeans and cowgirl boots work well for most mid-season games, barring extreme hot weather conditions. Although skinny jeans supposedly aren’t as fashionable these days, that doesn’t stop me from wearing them because I prefer them to flare leg any day of the week. Plus it’s a lot easier to show off cute boots when you’re wearing skinny jeans. My favorite skinny jeans are Citizens of Humanity, 7 for All Mankind, and Joe’s Jeans. (Sidenote: These Joe’s Jeans skinnies are currently 40% off!) These cowgirl boots from Ariat are my absolute favorite. I have had one pair for six years, and another pair for eight years!
Jewelry with a Jersey
A Clemson jersey is a more casual option for game day, but that doesn’t stop me from wearing jewelry with it. My Sheila Fajl hoops are some of my favorite earrings to wear with my Clemson jersey. For a necklace, I go with either a basic strand of pearls, or a dainty pendant like my Kendra Scott Elisa.

Styling a Game Day Jersey in Colder Weather
A Clemson Jersey is such a versatile choice for game day attire because you can easily throw a jacket over it if it’s colder. Two years ago I went to the ACC Championship Game in Charlotte, which was a nighttime game in December. Since kick-off wasn’t until 8:30pm, I knew that I needed to dress warmly. So I put an Under Armor and a purple Piko top on under my jersey. That was actually sufficient to keep me warm during the daylight hours, since it was sunny. But I definitely brought a jacket that I could put on after the sun went down! Also, a random lady complimented me on how I styled my jersey with hoops, pearls, and cowgirl boots at this game, which was really sweet.

It’s always an extra successful game day when I get a photo with the Clemson Tiger Cub!
