Putting Together Great Knight Outfits
I love going to UCF football games- there is nothing like game day. HaveUHeard how UCF got its colors? In 1970, a student election chose the “knight” as the mascot. Until 1993, the teams were known as the Golden Knights. In 1994, Knightro was chosen as the mascot, a black knight with gold armor.
It’s all about the Black & 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, UCF 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- UCF 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.
Sometimes I am good as gold and sometimes I am ready for black to basics. If you are like me and more about ‘repping the school’s colors, just look for Black 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) and cute black and gold earrings – everyone will know you love the Knights!
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.
