Back-to-school is an exciting time. The weather is starting to cool down, meaning more of the options in the back of your closet can make a reappearance. Fall and football season go hand-in-hand, but what happens when your tailgate is surrounded by snow? The later parts of the season are a test for even the biggest football fan, so let’s talk about how to prepare for those late-season, almost-winter games and how Flying Colors™ can help.
Remember: it’s worth it!
Did it get 40 degrees colder when the sun went down? Why is the wind so much stronger in here than it was outside the field? It feels like the arctic in the stadium, sure, but remember the reason you decided to stand out in the cold in the first place! The logo on your shirt signifies the team spirit that thousands of students decided was more important than drinking too much hot chocolate, so huddle together, stay warm, and cheer as loud as you can!
Leggings are your friend
Let’s not kid ourselves, leggings are the best. They can be dressed up, lazy day apparel, and any occasion in between. When you’re bundling up to cheer on the boys of fall during an ice storm, leggings are perfect since they can be worn under another pair of pants to help stay warm and keep your quads from going numb. Because they are tighter than a pair of jeans, this helps keep heat in and also allows you to wear something on top of them. Flying Colors leggings fit the bill perfectly, giving you enough legging options you want for anything you need.
Layering is key
Much like what you can do with leggings, layering tops is essential to staying warm during a game. Apart from cheering and jumping during touchdown celebrations, you’ll be stationary for about three hours. Luckily, wearing our gameday long sleeves and cardigans underneath your coat will help you layer and keep you warm enough to cheer through the howling winds.
Fortunately, Flying Colors college apparel looks good from spring to winter. Whether rain, snow, sleet, or heat, our clothes will help you show school spirit in any game day condition.
