Tru Colors Apparel Review & Give-a-way ends 10/30/2010...

On Saturdays our house is full of football. My husband is a huge Michigan Wolverines fan even though we live in Buckeye Country (and take so much slack for it, ha) and luckily I've always liked Michigan too! Although I know NOTHING about the actual game I love to dress up in blue and maize and support our favorite team! It's so hard to find cute things to wear though...I'm so not into a big baggy t-shirt, sweatshirts or the ugly pink jersey version of the guys, so I usually just find something blue and yellow to wear and add some fun jewelry instead.

Well recently I came across the cutest clothing company called Tru Colors Apparel. The girl behind this brand, LSU grad Amy Chenevert, is just like me (and probably you).


She loved to support her team(s) but noticed a huge void in the women's sports apparel marketplace when she was at the Superdome in September of 2007 supporting the Saints in just a black tee! Tru Colors was created as a solution by offering a line of clothing that is fashion forward and trend-right; essentially fusing women's contemporary fashion, game day apparel and team colors. The Tru Colors customer wants to show their spirit in a savvy way, without having it literally written on their sleeves like most traditional game day apparel.


So in 2007 Tru Colors started making dresses and shirts in team color combinations and in August of 2008 they had their items ready to ship! They recently launched their new online boutique TruColorsApparel.com offering a huge selection of shirts and dresses in most team colors and the best part is all of their clothing is under $100!!! Each style is named after a beloved sorority sister or girlfriend like Amanda and Cecile like the 2 I had the opportunity to review! Another awesome fact is that they are all made in the USA and produced in knit fabrications, perfect for those day long tailgating extravaganzas!!
Let me show you the 2 dresses they sent me...

First is the Amanda in Navy/Gold which retails at $88.00! This long sleeve turtleneck dress dress is just adorable and is perfect for chilly fall football weather!


It features the cutest gold dome buttons on the sleeves that you can wear down or cuff them back to show the contrasting color! The turtleneck is the same way, wear it up or roll it down to show off the contrasting team color- so cute!!! It is lightweight and made from 92% cotton and 8% spandex making it very comfortable all while still looking cute in your favorite team colors!


The next dress sent to review is the Cecile in the Crimson/White combination which also retails at just $88! I chose the Crimson/White to support my favorite baseball team the Cincinnati Reds! This babydoll dress is going to be perfect for those hot summer games!


I love that it features the cutest ruffles across the top front area and can we paired with a cardigan or jean jacket on those cooler nights! Here are a few of my other favorites from the Tru Colors collection...
I love the Dray $76! This super cool low v-back banded bottom top features straps fixed with gold buttons on the back and even a tiny slit for your thumb to create that "arm warmer" you've been looking for!


I am also loving this classic a-line Ashley Dress $78 which features a u-neck with tiny gold dome buttons accenting the top!
