If you’re gonna spend a day rootin’ from the bleachers, it’s
key to dress casual and comfy. But, obvi, because your crush is there ya wanna
look c-u-t-e, too. We’ve got the scoop on exactly what to wear on the sidelines
(or for a day watching March Madness).
Rock team colors
You don’t have to paint your face, but sporting team colors
shows spirit. If your crush goes to your school, rep your team by wearing a tee
that’s emblazoned with the mascot or logo. If your cutie goes to another
school, simply wearing a tee or tank in one of their colors is cool (but don’t
go out and buy one of their shirts—that’s a bit over the top). We like the
collegiate line over at VS for when we wanna go a li’l athletic.

Shimmy into your fave jeans
It’s tempting to wear a skirt (so cute!) but you’ll just end
up sticking to the bleachers or sitting awkwardly for hours (as a former
cheerleader, I can say that with confidence). Instead, opt for your fave denim.
You won’t be overdressed, you’ll feel totally comfy and will still look cute if
you guys go out post-game for pizza.

Pick cute (but sensible!) shoes
We heart major heels too but, sadly, the gym is not the
place for them. Skip over the sneaks and slip into cute flats. These ones have
tons of texture.

Add some jewels
Ya don’t wanna go overboard with the bling, but wearing a
darling pendant necklace or a quirky bracelet will put a li’l more “you” in
your getup. Or keep the sporty vibe alive and deck your wrist in a plastic
