Homecoming games are fast approaching at colleges across the country. This has been one of the most exciting college football seasons in recent memory with upsets happening on the reg, so it’s probably worth making the trip back to the alma mater, even if it means potentially running into that creepy freshman year roommate with the strange insect obsession.

Since the days of rolling over to the homecoming tailgate in Zubaz and slippers are behind you (hopefully!), we put together this helpful guide on how to dress for the big party and the big game in a way that shows your school spirit and your style sensibilities. No face paint required.

Finding the right pair of pants to wear on game day has always been a challenge. Aside from the aforementioned Zubaz, there haven’t been many options. Thankfully, Dockers has solved the problem with their Game Day Khakis which are available for dozens of teams and come in a slim fit that features your team’s logo on the side.

Homage Sweatshirt
$58, homage.com
Unless you can find a vintage throwback, we suggest leaving the jerseys to the players on the field. (They fit much better over shoulder pads anyway.) This charcoal heather Ohio State sweatshirt from Homage is made from soft brushed fleece that feels like you’ve owned it since college (minus that dorm room smell).

Head Coach Jacket
$65.95, fanatics.com
Full disclosure: Wearing this jacket will not grant you the power to go down to the sideline and start calling plays, no matter how many bourbon ciders you’ve had. This is a great layering piece that will protect you from the wind.

Cole Haan ZeroGrand Tall Boot

Between tailgate hopping and throwing the ball around, you’re going to be on the move, so comfortable footwear is a must. But you also want shoes that will look sharp and won’t go be ruined if some freshman pours a beer on them. The new ZeroGrand Tall Boots check all boxes with their sneaker-like outsole and rugged upper.
