Buckeye Football Fashion

By Lucy Infeld on October 1, 2012

At Ohio State, football is king in the Fall. Every weekend plan is made with the game in mind: when to wake up, when to tailgate, what the weather is like, who are we playing… football dominates the excitement and atmosphere around school, and game day fashion is no different.

With the early season games’ warmer weather permitting students to throw on their favorite red jersey and a pair of shorts for maximum comfort, the colder weather provides much greater opportunities for students to dress up their game day gear. Staple pieces are, of course, scarlet ones! This season– apart from the regular jerseys and t-shirts– red pants, button downs, bows and shorts have been favored amongst female college students at Ohio State University.

For the guys, they tend to prefer sweatshirts and jeans on colder days, but don’t be surprised to see the occasional red blazer, pants, ties, and bow ties (in honor of President Gee) making appearances at games as well. As far as accessories go, buckeye necklaces and block O face tattoos continue to be popular additions to the scarlet and gray apparel.

The Buckeyes have also been taking cues from some of the Southern schools, trading in game day sweats for a dressier look more common to the SEC than the Big Ten, with girls pulling out red dresses and sweaters and the guys looking sharp in scarlet and gray suits.

Whether it’s hot or cold out, and whether you are dressing for style or comfort, all Buckeyes can agree on one thing: everyone looks better in scarlet!
