Your team has had an outstanding year and has been invited to a bowl game! But what to wear? We're highlighting three bowl games to look out for and showing you how to style your chicka~d with a little help from our friends at Pinterest.
Beef 'O' Brady's St. Petersburg Bowl
One of the newer bowl games, the Beef 'O' Brady's St. Petersburg Bowl takes place at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, FL and features teams from the Big East Conference and Conference USA (unless one of the conferences does not have enough teams bowl eligible, in which case the Sun Belt Conference is eligible to send a team). This year Florida International University will face off against Marshall on December 20, 2011 at 8 PM EST on ESPN and will be the first time a Sun Belt conference team (FIU) will play.
However, whether you're at the game or cheering from the closest big screen TV, we want to make sure you look fabulous in your chicka~d. We found this fun way to style your hair with a simple waterfall braid. Next, we chose a smoky gold eye shadow to liven any eye color and also works for an easy transition to celebrate after the win! To keep you warm while cheering for your team, we've paired our chicka~d tank dress with a knee-length black winter jacket, sheer black tights and an amazing pair of riding boots!
S.D. County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl
The Poinsettia Bowl began in 2005 and is annually at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, CA. The second-place team from the Mountain West Conference is guaranteed a spot in this bowl through the 2014 season and will face a team from the Western Atheltic Conference (WAC), provided it has enough bowl eligible teams. This year the game will take place on December 21st at 8 PM EST on ESPN and will showcase TCU and Louisianna Tech.
If you're a TCU fan, then we have the perfect outfit for you to show off your school spirit! We've paired our chicka~d fitted dress with a sequin sweater to add that touch of sparkle and festivity for the winter season. Next, we found this easy way to do a friendship bracelet with just a simple ribbon and some beads. For makeup, we suggest a deep purple eye shadow with a touch of teal as contrast. The best part yet? You can use the eye shadow mixed with a base coat to create a matching nail polish too!
AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl
It is named the "Independence Bowl" after the timing of its inaugural game in 1976, the United States bicentennial year. This game takes place in Independence Stadium in Shreveport, LA and will feature Mizzou and North Carolina. This is North Carolina's first time at the Indepence Bowl and Mizzou's third.
For the Mizzou fan in your life, we recommend adding a pattern to our chicka~d bright gold drop waist dress color such as this polka dot clutch from Anthropologie. For hair and makeup, we opted for a traditional smoky eye paired with a fishtail braid to keep your hair smooth and stylish in this cold weather! Top it all off with a cable knit scarf tied as a bow that can be worn in front or to the side for a cute, fashionable flair!
Good luck Chicka-d Teams!!! We can't wait for bowl season to start.
So whether you're at the game or at a party, we hope you have fun, stay safe and be fashionable as your favorite school battles for the title! In addition, congrats to all of the college seniors who have recently graduated, you're off to a great start already!
