There are most definitely women — including a few Capital Area Women LifeStyle Magazine staff members — who will you tell you that the best part of autumn is tailgate season. While I think it’s a great part of the season, when it comes to tailgate spirit and style, my friends Kathryn Gosaynie, who recently return to Michigan State University to purse her master’s degree and fellow MSU alumni Megan Krupp, take it to a new level. So, this month I let them do the shopping. Here are two tailgate looks and a must-have fall beauty product (because a good manicure makes any activity better) to add to your collection this fall Go Green! Trouser jeans and a Member’s Only jacket dress up an otherwise simple tailgate look. Top it off with specialty Spartan sunglasses and you have a real winner! Jacket by Member’s Only, $29.99 available at Nordstrom Rack; shirt, TJ Maxx, $19.99; jeans by Gap, $69.95; shoes by Tom’s, $54; sunglasses, $19.99, available at Campus Den, $19.99 Go White! An all-weather jacket and dark denim with ankle boots is the key to keeping this look fun and totally on-trend for fall. Add on a green clutch for all of those tailgate essentials and the look is complete. Jacket by J. Crew, $148; shirt from Student Bookstore, East Lansing, $25; jeans by Elle, $48 available at Kohl’s; boots by Diba Kayden, $54.95 available at DSW; clutch by Steve Madden, $19.99 available at Marshall’s. Matching Manicure A color like O.P.I.’s Schnapps Out of It that’s taken right off of the changing leaves is perfect for autumn and it’s hard to go wrong with an O.P.I. polish.
