Homecoming is full of opportunities to have fun, whether you are visiting with alumni, riding in the annual tricycle races, going to the bonfire, the parade, the football game or the musical. We view these as opportunities to dress up, and we’ve got some ideas for what to wear as you cheer on our 6-0 football team, or if you’re attending the Homecoming musical, “Guys and Dolls.”
Fall has officially started, and we are at that time of year when how warmly we dress changes day-to-day. For a cool autumn afternoon at the game, we recommend a casual-cute look by keeping it simple with black flats, skinny jeans, an ESU T-shirt and a comfy new sweatshirt from the bookstore!
These sweatshirts came out this week and can be dressed up for a game, but also dressed down as a quick outfit to put on before class. They are heavy duty and run big for that classic slouchy sweatshirt look.
They are priced at $50, but it’s a worthy investment because these durable sweatshirts can last you years. You can also get them for a bargain during the bookstore’s Champion Sale in early November. Go light on the makeup with a little eyeliner, mascara, face powder and blush. We advise to put your hair up to avoid it getting in your face in the event that it’s a windy day. You don’t want to miss a touchdown because your hair got in your eyes, right?
Show school spirit with your nail polish, too! You can purchase the “I’m Not Lion” color by China Glaze for $8. It is a fun gold glitter that stands out and goes great with the “We’re All In” casino theme. If the glitter is too much for you, pick a shade of black or gold.
Go dressy for the Homecoming musical. You can wear a simple, non-expensive dress that can be worn in different ways to fit your own style with accessories and shoes. As for makeup, you can go a bit heavier than normal, but just make sure you aren’t wearing more than the performers.
We styled this dress three different ways so that anyone would feel comfortable and still look their best. The first way is definitely the most casual.
We paired the dress with a simple belt, cardigan, and flats to stay comfy and cute.
If you’re interested in a more casual style, we have two more options. The first is very classy and simple. We took off the cardigan and belt, then added a necklace and nude pumps.
The musical can be a great excuse to wear heels. Why not? You are sitting down most of the time!
The last look for the musical is still very put-together and classic, but we added a bit of a twist.
Pairing a similar necklace as the one in the last look with these simple black heels really pulls everything together.
Make sure to take your essentials along with you in a sparkly clutch bag to finish off your look!
Have fun with your Homecoming attire and make sure to incorporate some black and gold to show your school spirit, and never forget – your smile is your best accessory!
