School spirit is a top priority and tailgating is a way of life here at UT, so when it comes to wearing our school colors, we’re not limited to plain logo tees, replica jerseys and baseball caps. While those may be just fine for the guys, we girls can show our school pride and still look fabulous. When you’re planning your tailgate attire for the Red River Rivalry game this weekend, try checking out some of these Longhorn-friendly treasures on The Drag.
CREAM VINTAGE — 2532 Guadalupe St. — (512) 474-8787
One of the greatest things about Austin is the wide array of vintage boutiques, so it makes sense that they want to get in on the Longhorn pride action. Cream Vintage on Guadalupe Street has created its very own game-day dress, made from recycled clothing and designed exclusively on site! The adorable strapless cotton dress with white eyelet trim costs $58 and is sure to turn heads at the next football game.
MANJU’S — 2424 Guadalupe St. — (512) 474-0637
If you’re looking for a subtler game-day get-up, Manju’s has a solution. This girly boutique is chock-full of burnt-orange attire that can easily transition from tailgating to teatime. Their dresses run about $40 to $50 and tops are between $30 and $40. With their clothing you can show off your school colors without going logo-crazy. If you’re still looking for a little touch of Bevo, be sure to check out the jewelry and removable feather extensions at the register.
UNIVERSITY CO-OP — 2244 Guadalupe St. — (512) 476-7211
The Co-op is definitely not such a big secret, but what you may not know is that they carry designs by UT fashion students! Last spring, students Meghan McCabe and Alyssa Garcia were lucky enough to be chosen and now their designs are being sold at the Co-op. The sassy burnt-orange dresses are $39.99 each. While you’re there, you can of course check out the rest of the store for some complementary accessories and everything else Bevo-inspired. If you’re feeling especially cutesy, take a look at the Victoria’s Secret PINK UT merchandise!
With UT gear being one of the most produced brands among college sports, it’s easy to create a stylish, fun and unique look for the next football game. So get out there Longhorn ladies, and start shopping!
