There’s nothing more to love than something that both a stylish gal and guy can wear. What used to be how high school jocks showed off their sports letters is now the coolest way to stay warm for spring. Everyone from the innocently chic Elle Fanning to the ultimate bad girl Rihanna is wearing it. It’s my latest obsession, and it is… the varsity jacket.
Name: Cody Haynes
Major: Classical Languages, Classical Antiquity, Anthropology
College Fashionista: Can you tell me a little bit about your style?
Cody Haynes: You know it’s interesting when I was getting ready this morning, I thought in that moment that I don’t really know how to categorize it. I guess I’d say simple.
CF: Do you have a celebrity that you get style inspiration from?
CH: Not so much, no. But, whenever I hang out with my sister she says, “You know Cody, today you still look like Stanley Tucci.”
CF: Is there a fashion line or character from a movie who you’d like to trade closets with?
CH: You know it might be fun to be David Bowie and all of his assorted personalities for a day.
CF: Where do you usually find yourself shopping?
CH: Typically I’ll hit the different thrift shops around Lawrence. Arizona Trading Company and Wild Man, I’ve made friends there at the very least.
How To: To channel Cody’s look, the right accessories are a must. The Havana glasses from Ray-Ban are the perfect option for taking on this eyewear style. As for the watch, the best ones are always found at secondhand and vintage clothing stores. Try a varsity jacket like this one from Urban Outfitters to really look the part.
