Field fashion


As A&M approaches football season, students are adding to their game-day wardrobe. From jerseys to dresses and body paint to school-spirited shoes, Aggies are taking game-day apparel to a whole new level in order to best represent A&M in the SEC.
Body painting at any sporting event, especially football games, would be a great tradition to start. It shows your love for the sport and always excites the crowd, said senior sports management major Aaron Corby.
For many women, one game-day fashion tradition that is sure to carry over to the SEC is T-shirt dresses. These dresses, which are commonly seen in Kyle Field, are popular in the SEC.
I love wearing my T-shirt dress to the game. It cost me $140 but it was so worth it, senior education major Lauren Paolini said.
The cost of the game-day dresses starts at about $80 and can exceed $200 if it is custom-made. It can be purchased at various stores throughout College Station. Some students prefer to use personal T-shirts to create an Aggie game-day dress.
Many students said A&Ms move to the SEC does not warrant a new game-day wardrobe. They plan to wear much of what they already have.
I think the A&M game attire will pretty much stay the same. Its already tradition for girls to wear the game day dresses, said sophomore agriculture communication and journalism major Sarah Haas.
Students said there probably wont be a big change in attire because they already wear polos, jerseys and dresses.
Students also plan to take advantage of A&M TOMS Campus Classics. TOMS limited-edition Campus Classic shoes are made in maroon and white and when purchased, will aid in giving a pair of new shoes to a child in need.
Owning a pair of A&M TOMS would be awesome. I can look cute and support my school, said junior agriculture communication and journalism Brittney Postert.
Many A&M students said they are excited about adding to the Aggie tradition and being in a different environment, but nothing will stop them from wearing their boots.
Wearing your boots to A&M football games is tradition. Nothing is going to change that with the Aggie Spirit we have, said junior visualization major Ashley Lane.
