So you’re heading to the rugby, but not sure what to wear? Don’t worry, with an office full of rugby fans we have pulled together our top suggestions to keep you cheering all day long.
The key components for your perfect rugby outfit are: Warmth, Comfort and Patriotism. If you’ve ever been to Murrayfield you’ll know it’s not a warm place to be. Scotland isn’t exactly a tropical climate but really, even for Scotland Murrayfield is cold so make sure you wrap up warm.
If you want to experience the rugby atmosphere to it’s fullest then make the journey to the Stadium on foot, otherwise you’ll be missing out on piping, singing and maybe even some dancing. For this reason a pair comfy boots or trainers are a must.
If you are lucky enough to be headed to Rome this year as Scotland take on Italy at the Stadio Olimpico in round 5 then you are in for a treat. Former Scotland Captain and rugby legend Rob Wainwright has organised “The March of 1000 Headbands!” a 2.5 mile walk to the Stadium from Piazza del Popolo which will be the final event in the Doddie Gump, a campaign raising funds for the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.
Show your support to the fullest! At the 6 Nations you may encounter some Welsh Daffodils, English Knights and Irish Leprechauns so you need to make sure everyone knows Scotland are your team, what better way to do this than by wearing Tartan!

On first appearance this kilt is plain coloured with only a flash of tartan fringing, but once your jumping out of your seat to cheer the team on your tartan pleating of choice will be shown. Not keen on the old kilt? Then trews are for you. Ladies there are plenty options for you too, the flattering bias cut mini skirt is perfect teamed up with some thick tights and ankle boots.
