The Ultimate Game Day Dressing Guide
Stay Cool + Look Fab!
Game day is just around the corner, and as we Texas gals know, there's no escaping the Texas heat! We asked Co-op Women's and Children's Associate Buyer and UT alum, Joelle Houshmand, to put together the best game day looks to beat the heat and be on trend! Don't forget to add a clear bag to your look! Starting August 1st, all University of Texas sports venues will require attendees to carry clear bags. Read more about the clear bag policy and clear bag options here.

"Fall in love and keep things chic with our new off the shoulder smocked top from Monoreno. This piece goes great with a pair of cropped denim and virtually any type of shoe. Take it a notch further by adding gold layered chokers – we've featured a couple designed by recent UT fashion merchandising alum Maggie V.!" -Joelle
"We've been swooning over this cute sweetheart romper which features a flirty middle cut out and ruche neckline. This piece makes for a great day to night transition for when you're ready to celebrate that Longhorn win. Add a little color with turquoise accessories." -Joelle
Off-the-Shoulder + Embroidered
"You can never go wrong with a classic Texas orange dress and cowboy boots! Our new JoyJoy ruffle off the shoulder embroidered dress is a great way to beat the heat and pairs perfectly with your favorite boots and tights. Add a small accessory like earrings or pedant necklace to tie it all together." -Joelle
"Bodysuits have been on fire for a while now but this gem from PINK is especially fun. It features side ladder straps and a scoop back to subtly take your game day look to the next level. Pair it with some embroidered bottoms and sneakers to complete the look!" - Joelle

"This top has been a number one best seller for a reason! Throw it back a few years and stay cool with our Texas visor and strappy back PINK tank. Our OCJ cut off denim short features a stitched Bevo on both back pockets so you can show off your Longhorn pride from every angle." -Joelle

Her favorite thing about UT is hard to sum up in one sentence, but she is super thrilled to have returned to the 40 acres and help give back to a university that gave so much to her. Hook 'Em!
