Putting Together Great Nole Outfits
I love going to FSU football games- there is nothing like game day. HaveUHeard how FSU got its colors? In 1904 and 1905 when FSU was known as the Florida State College, they won the championship wearing purple and gold. Florida State College became Florida Female College in 1905 so the football team was forced to attend the University of Florida (ironic). The following year, the Florida Female college student body selected crimson as the official school color. The administration combined it with the purple of the championship football teams from 1904/1905 to create the color garnet. Garnet and gold were first used on an FSU football uniform in 1947.
I’m all about the Garnet & Gold on game days but I am also about fashion. I want to be comfortable, especially on those Florida humid days when you are packed in a stadium, it’s more than 90° out, and the humidity is stifling. For each game, FSU will determine what color you should wear… sometimes it’s white, sometimes it’s black. They will announce the color prior to each game. Want to know the actual primary colors- FSU gives you the graphic versions.
We think the best in authentic college clothing, accessories, and fan gear is Fanatics. They carry brands such as Jordan Gear, Vineyard Vines, Stance, Columbia, Dooney & Bourke, Tommy Bahama, Vera Bradley, Orca, Southern Tide, College Row One Shoes, Johnnie-O Clothing, and Peter Millar Clothing. Add in everything you need for tailgating including NCAA tents, tables, and chairs, waterless face tattoos, eye black, jewelry, and more. For shorts or jeans (only if it is cool out- even ’70s will still be hot), I like American Eagle’s mom jeans or denim shorts.
I’ve also found some very cool retro Nole outfits on American Eagle’s tailgate website. If wearing a comfortable dress is the way you want to go, definitely check out some of these fun Game Day dresses from Redbubble. We have also found a good selection at Kohls.
Sometimes I am good as gold, ready for black to basics and sometimes I have Garnet fever. If you are like me and more about ‘repping the school’s colors, just look for Garnet or Gold. There are some private online stores that specialize in Game Day Attire that we like:
Throw in some accessories including a regulation stadium bag from SCORE! The Official Game Day bag (you even get a 15% discount- get code by clicking on the link), cute garnet and gold earrings, and even an FSU hair tie – everyone will know you love the Noles!
We would strongly recommend leaving the high heels at home as you will be walking a good distance to the stadium (unless you were lucky enough to get there many, many hours in advance and snag a great parking spot) and climbing stands. I love wearing Converse sneakers or Adidas Stan Smith, depending on my outfit. For cooler weather, I even have worn flat boots.
