My homecoming is this week and I have been getting quite a few requests on what to wear. Last week I did a post on what to wear to the Alumni Cabaretand today my focus is the football game. I put together a few looks. No one goes to the football game to actually watch the game. This is the time where we catch up with old friends before we had back to the main campus. We see everyone from the Dean, old RAs, professors and even our old college sweethearts.

The football game is where everyone tailgates and just chill. Dressing for this event is very tricky. You do not want to be climbing up and down bleachers in 5inch heels, no matter how “comfortable” they are. You don’t want to wear a fur coat because you are at a sporting event and you will look like the girl who tries way too hard.  Not only do you have to dress for the actual game, you have to be prepared to stand and mix and mingle with all of your old friends for the rest of the day when you go back to the yard. This is when the Greeks do their greek sings and they have the homecoming parade so be prepared for a lot of standing. So all of these looks will feature a pair of flat boots. Wedges are ok, depending on how long you plan on standing, but flat boots are always the go to for an event like this. They are stylish and comfy. Trust me when I tell you there is nothing worse then being in pain because you tried to be cute in a pair of heels.

This look is for the girl who is very laid black. A cute chunky knit sweater, suede boots, t-shirt, and scarf for when it gets chilly. I love gross body bags because they keep your arms free.

So we are now in full swing for homecoming season for many of the HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities). I attended the FIRST HBCU, Lincoln University of Pennsylvania. Anyone that has gone to an HBCU knows the importance homecoming.  This is when most of the best parties and cabarets take place, comedy shows, football games and pep rally,  fashion shows, step shows, carnivals and concerts (well that’s how we got down at Lincoln) 

When I was in undergrad, we would go home just to get new outfits for homecoming because this is the time ofyear where everyone gets “fly.” All of the alumni and their families and current students family and friends come for a week or weekend of fun. So Lincoln’s homecoming is the last week of October so I have been getting quite a few requests for various looks to rock during homecoming. So this post is the first of many posts to come for the next few weeks for homecoming outfit inspirations.

So this post is geared toward the Homecoming Cabaret, which is for the alumni. I don’t go to the on-campus parties anymore because I feel I am a little too old. At 26 I shouldn’t be in a gym full of 16-21 year olds, and the younger crowd is more prone to fighting while us “old-heads” just want to party and have fun. When going to the cabaret you must look your best. Guys put on their suits and ladies step out in fly dresses and heels. If you wear jeans and a t-shirt with boots, sneakers, or flats, you will look out of place.
