Whether you’re a Wake Forest student, passing through to see a game, or simply a Demon Deacon at heart, a pre-game tailgate is definitely on your fall social checklist. Here are some of our favorite tailgate looks from the season so far!

Taylor enjoys tailgate season by piecing together cute, flowy sundresses from Free People and sleek black leather booties or platform sandals.
Taylor loves adding some edge to her girly outfit-vibe by putting it together in this way. In the first picture, Taylor’s friend, Olivia, is wearing a plaid dress from Urban Outfitters. They both accent their outfits with Quay sunglasses.

Tastefully pairing black and gold/yellow, Carlisle’s outfit screams Demon Deacon. Posing with her mother for Family Weekend, Carlisle pieced together a fun, edgy black top from BooHoo, A-line yellow cropped pants, and black wedges from Nordstrom.
“I wanted my outfit to be cute and fashion-forward for the parent’s weekend game! My top and bottom are both from sets, so I mixed and matched both sets to get this PERFECT look. It was so comfy and cute!”

“For tailgates, I really love to go along with the black & gold school spirit vibe. I’m all about the Deacs and pairing black and white with yellow/gold — a color scheme that I maintain is ‘in’ right now. I paired a simple Brandy Melville tube top with a black & white checkered skirt from Saks Fifth Avenue. I also like sprucing up outfits with jewelry. For this outfit, I picked simple gold hoops from Francesca’s, a gold watch, a gold initial ‘R’ necklace, and Cèline sunglasses.”

“I have on a black checkered skirt from Smitten, a boutique in Durham, NC. My earrings are Sheila hoops which came from the same boutique. I am wearing a simple black shirt from Banana Republic. My necklace is from bohobeads in Raleigh, NC!”

“I may be from the north, but I’m a southern girl at heart! I love wearing my cowboy boots to the tailgates because I get to embrace my appreciation for southern attire. I also like to mix fun jewelry with my outfits to add my personal flare to the look!”

Kayla Garner & Dani Soviero
Kayla loves the versatility of rompers for tailgates. “They’re just a fun mix of casual and girly. Also, POCKETS!” She is wearing a romper from BooHoo. Kayla also loves adding cowgirl boots to her look, “I love these boots! They’re sturdy and perfect for game day shenanigans.” Also pictured, Dani Soviero sports a faux-denim skirt, a light, comfy off-white sweater-blouse, accented with some boho jewelry and pink-tinted Ray Bans.
Happy football season & go Deacs!!
