Football season is in full swing! This means we all need to sport gear which shows off who we are rooting for! Go Niners! (I also cheer for the Raiders-so Go Raiders!)

Levi’s has always been a mainstay in my life. There is always at least one pair of Levi’s jeans in my closet at all times. They have the most durable denim, flattering cuts, and they are the original denim designers; right here from San Francisco! I also feel a connection to them because my Great-Grandfather was one of the first people to sell Levi’s jeans to gold-miners during the gold rush from his general store. So when I learned Levi’s had a full collection of game day, football gear, I was thrilled!

what to wear to football game

Levi’s has a full collection of fabulous football game day shirts and jackets to help give you the perfect football game outfit ideas for both being in the stadium, or at a fun football watch party. I also find that Levi’s football game day apparel is great to wear on non-game days too! I love showing my support for my team!

This striped tee is is super cute for both game days, and casual days when football isn’t played. It offers short sleeves, and looks so perfect on warm or hot days. We all know Levi’s Stadium can get warm; our South Bay temperatures love to rise! This short sleeve tee is perfect for those warm home games!

Football season runs from warm fall days, into late fall, early winter. This means temperatures go from 80 degrees to 40 degrees during the season. I love this rugby shirt because it is thick and perfect for cold game days. Nothing is more annoying then throwing a jacket over my team shirt and covering up my team spirit! This rugby keeps me warm, and keeps my team support on display. Love that!

I just love my new 49ers gear from Levi’s. I need to snap up a couple more pieces to show my support for the Raiders too. Hopefully my gear will help bring some luck to the niners this season, they really need it!

One of my favorite runways to see when I attend New York Fashion Week is the Academy of Art University’s collections. When I was a student at the University of San Francisco, we socialized with the kids from the Academy of Art in San Francisco, so I have always felt a tie to the school. As one of the most world renowned art schools, I am also proud to say it is located right here in the Bay Area. I love seeing the fresh take on fashion that students from the University produce. They are the future of the fashion industry. Seeing their show, is getting a glimpse into the future of what emerging designers will create for us to wear.

For the spring 2018, and fall 2018 seasons, the Academy of Art University showcased ten emerging designers from both the BFA and MFA programs. The designers took their inspiration from the world around them; including San Francisco’s own landscape.

The designers from the Academy of Art University who showed at New York Fashion Week included; Hailun Zhou, Eden Slzin, Dina Marie Lam, Carlos Rodriguez, Rheanna Oliver-Palanca, Saya Shen, Joanna Jadallah, Cana Klebanoff, Ryan Yu, and Jelly Shan.

“Every year our designers have shown an amazing showcase of their talent and this year is no exception. This group has crafted each collection, and every piece within their collection has its own unique identity,” comments Jayne Foster, Graduate Director of Fashion. “They have stayed true to their vision and pushed their creative process into collections that show exploration of silhouette and textile techniques. These are the designers who will inspire and lead the next generation of new creatives. It has been a privilege to work with them.”

While the spring 2018, and fall 2018 collections offer an artistic take on fashion, they do reflect what we see trending in the world of fashion for the upcoming year. Hot trends for 2018, spotted on the Academy of Art’s runway include; black/white, geometric silhouettes, silver/metallic, knits, prints, suiting, and the emergence of one piece dressing for men.

How to wear a sequin jacket during the day

Wearing: Kendra Scott earrings / MAC Lipstick / Helmut Lang sweater (on major sale!) / sequin jacket c/o Tart Collections (use code HOLIDAY20 now through 12-30-2016 to save 20% off!) / Gap jeans (on sale!) / Givenchy handbag / nail polish c/o Essie Go With The Flowy / Louise et Cie shoes (sold out, also love this pair)

Wondering how to wear a sequin jacket during the day for a casual event? Or maybe you have a casual party on New Years Eve and are wondering how to style a sequin jacket for New Years Eve? Well I struggled with these questions too!

I have an all-black outfit I planned to wear with this sequin jacket from Tart Collections. When the jacket arrived, I quickly went to my closet to try the outfit on together, only to find my weight gain sized me out of my black outfit! The shame! So then I decided I had to find a way to style this sequin jacket for my upcoming holiday parties. Plus, I needed a casual New Years Eve outfit idea, so this sequin jacket would be perfect!

Pairing this Tart Collections sequin jacket with loose, distressed, straight-leg jeans worked out perfectly! I love the edgy-glam look for a casual New Years Eve party, or any daytime activity. This is a great girl’s brunch outfit idea too! For New Years Eve, I plan to wear this exact outfit but I will switch out the daytime handbag for this cute little number by Valentino. You can see it styled here.

Tart Collections has so many fabulous and festive pieces for New Years; as well as everyday wear. You can’t go wrong with a Tart Collection piece! Plus, they are based right here in the San Francisco Bay Area, so their style is exactly how we dress. Love that!

You can find this fabulous sequin jacket and more at TartCollections.com. Use coupon code HOLIDAY20 now through December 30, 2016 to save 20% off your purchase. Love that!
