Football season is here and I love it! It’s the time of year to enjoy tailgates, show our school spirit at a college game and rock our favorite jersey on game day Sunday. What should be left out of this football equation are stilettos along with the mini skirt and short shorts.
I attended a football game a few weeks ago and ladies were walking around in some outrageous, “doing the most” outfits. Ladies looked like they were ready to attend a party instead of a football game.
I never understood why females dressed up to attend a football game. Well I take that back; I know WHY they do, but don’t they realize they are doing too much? Ladies, if you’re trying to impress a player on the field, he won’t notice you from the stands. He SHOULD be focusing on the game and not worrying about who’s in the stands wearing what.
In theory it may make sense to dress up for a game because guys attend football games so you have the opportunity to catch someone’s eye. But to me, I think a guy would like to see a girl who was into the football spirit, rocking her favorite team’s jersey or t-shirt. When you walk around looking like you’re going to The Park instead of FedEx Field, you’re giving off the vibe that you can’t be laid back and enjoy the game and atmosphere. You look like you’re there only to try and impress someone (believe me ladies, it’s a plus if you can just chill out and enjoy football like everyone else). Fellas, am I wrong?
I’m not suggesting every female attend a game in sneakers and loose jeans. You can rock a jersey, t-shirt or nice top with skinny jeans and flats (or flat boots) without screaming “I’m trying really hard to get attention.”
Some people may even rock a t-shirt or jersey with jeans and heels. For me, that’s still doing a lot. If I have to walk around getting snacks, stand in line for the rest room and go up and down stairs at a stadium, doing so in stilettos just won’t cut it. And as a women who loves heels, if I could rock them all the time I would. But at a football game is neither the time nor the place.
Save the sexy heels and your mini skirt for the after party or a night out on the town, when guys really take notice.
