Famed costume designer Edith Head, who dressed such stars as Ginger Rogers, Grace Kelly, and Audrey Hepburn, once said that “you can have anything you want in life if you dress for it.” She should know; she won eight Academy Awards for her designs. Given her string of success, it might be that the Vols’ gridiron performance depends just a little on what you wear when watching the game, whether you’re in your home, at a tailgate, or in the stadium seats. If you’re committed to a winning UT season, therefore, you’ll want to dress the part and wear something beyond khaki shorts and an orange t-shirt that’s seen better days.
Game day is more than just wearing your favorite team’s colors; it’s about wearing pride and wearing it with class and panache. You can get an orange ball cap almost anywhere, but where can you go to put together the right game day fashion? You are going to be far more concerned about comfort by the end of the game than about those heels you swore matched best. Cityview took the time to pick out elegant looks, with comfort in mind, that will help you support your winning team—we’ve got some suggestions on what to wear to achieve the “Rocky Top” look in style.
For our shoot, All Occasions Party Rentals erected a giant tent and provided couches, tables, a grill, and everything else necessary to stage a successful tailgate. Alumni Hall, in addition to providing some of our fashion clothing, allowed us to use many UT accessories, including a portable UT bar. The Casual Pint Hardin Valley loaned us a keg and portable tap setup to make things look picture perfect for an afternoon spent preparing for the big game.
