If you plan on actually going to the game, your outfit choice might be a little different than those who are solely tailgating. Seeing as Michigan weather is extremely unpredictable, your best tool before picking out your outfit will be checking the weather when you wake up. Even if you check the weather the night before, look again. It can and most likely will change. Trust me, you do not want to be stuck in the bleachers unprepared for the rain or snow that is headed your way. I’ve been there.
For the colder games
Thick Socks: Warm socks are a lifesaver. If you don’t have at least one pair you are missing out. They are an essential for cold games!
Mittens/gloves: Always keep a pair of mittens or gloves in your pockets! Well maybe not for the very hot ones, but if it’s questionable bring them! They make a difference.
Parka: Although they might be a pain at a tailgate, you will not regret it when it gets dark and cold at the game!
For the warmer games
Tennis shoes: From tailgates to the end of the game, you will be on your feet the entire day. If you wear flip flops or sandals, you will regret it.
Sunglasses: Sunglasses are an essential for sunny games. There can be quite a glare in the stadium, so protect your eyes! Plus, they’ll help you see the game better.
For the rainy games:
Rain boots: If you wear tennis shoes to a game that is rainy, be prepared to ruin them. Puddles are nearly impossible to avoid if it’s really raining. I ruined a new pair of Nikes my freshman year because of this reason.
