Can you feel the excitement as football season comes near? Whether you are watching the game on the big screen with friends, or in the stadium of your alma mater, football games are a treasured weekend tradition in the south especially. Make sure you are ready with the best clear bags for game day!
The dress code varies from school to school, but in the Southeastern Conference you can count on women to wear sundresses, boots, stylish sunglasses, and a tote to carry the essentials. In 2017 amid safety concerns, clear bag guidelines were established between the NFL and the SEC (and others, but these are the ones I am familiar with). Now, anything you want to carry inside the stadium must fit inside a clear bag no larger than 12 x 6 x 12 inches, or a clear gallon Ziploc bag! Since we ALL know we have more style than a Ziploc bag (even if you are minimalist) and moms have things we have to have, here are the best clear bags for game day!
