NEVER let anyone tell you that the only way you can be rockin’ that skirt is if you’re on the sidelines cheering. Especially during football szn, when it isn’t 20 degrees and snowing yet, these skirts are perfect for tailgating. Any ‘Cuse color can really perfect that game day outfit.

Coordination is key

If you plan on tailgating with your #squad,  be sure to plan your outfits accordingly! Nothing is worse than when you take fire pics with each other, only to realize later that you’re blending into one big orange, blue, or white blob together. These outfits are perfectly coordinated to pose for any tailgating ‘grams.

Just the right amount of ~extra~

Have to go to the tailgate at 2PM but also need to look good for your Tinder date in 3 hours? No worries. You can do both in the same exact outfit! Keep it simple with solid Syracuse colors and you can never go wrong with denim. These girls KILLED this double look to keep their tailgating outfits trendy.

One of the best ways to make your tailgating outfits different and unique is to give it your own touch.  Nice weather calls for cutting and crafting your ‘Cuse tees to fit your style just right. Whether it’s a low cut v-neck or ~sexy~ lace up, take a chance and DIY-it.

Out of all the possible combos, for an SU tailgate, you can never go wrong with orange. Pair your tees with some denim shorts and cute sunglasses and you’re set to take on any game-day.
