The air is getting a bit cooler in Mount Pleasant, and that can only mean one thing; it’s football season. Many football fans may not think much about what they are wearing to a game, but accessorizing is everything when taking your game day look to the next level.

Here are a few examples of how accessories can spice up your spirited CMU apparel that are perfect for any sporting event.

Jewelry can make or break an outfit. Too much can be overpowering, whereas too little can be a missed opportunity. Our school colors are maroon and gold, so add on some gold accessories to your look to show school spirit. Gold hoops are on-trend right now and come in multiple size options to fit your style.
