The varsity jacket is quickly becoming a street fashion favorite as well as a red carpet staple. This year varsity jackets were reinterpreted in a variety of ways. Celebrities have embraced this style as of recently with Hollywood favorites like Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift, Elle Fanning, Katy Perry and Rihanna all being spotted sporting the look. The varsity jacket, also known as the letter-man jacket, is less tough than a biker jacket but makes a bolder statement than your typical blazer or pullover. Plus the varsity jacket has a retro flare that we love. That is why this trend has caught on so well, because of its versatility and retro uniqueness. This grab-and-go jacket is the perfect complement to almost any spunky, funky fall/winter ensemble.
For a classic varsity jacket look we recommend a varsity jacket with leather or suede accents. Pair the jacket with skinny jeans and a t-shirt for a comfortable, casual fall look. For something a little more out of the box, you could opt for a varsity jacket that has oriental accents; this look was seen quite frequently during fashion week this year. Pair your oriental inspired varsity jacket with a textual skirt made in a fabric like tweed or leather. This will create contrast in your outfit and bring out your playful side.
Try The Trend Tips
Ready to rock the retro varsity jacket trend, well here are a few tips to help you master the latest style.
First off, make sure your varsity jacket is casual and loose fitting, but not sloppy. The varsity jacket look is not meant to be fitted, however if the jacket is overly loose it may end up making you look messy and unkempt.
We highly suggest wearing a varsity jacket with a skirt, especially a longer one. However, avoid pairing your varsity jacket with dresses or evening wear, the combination clash will leave you looking like a fashion mess.
