A break from the Texas heat allowed today’s Fashionisto to add a lightweight jacket to his ensemble without looking weighed down. The varsity jacket, a part of American heritage, is no longer exclusively for jocks. It has been around for decades and has finally been revamped to its full stylish potential as showcased on this Fashionisto’s casual look.
While the varsity jacket may have stolen the show, he complements his T-shirt and denim jeans outfit with a fresh pair of Nike Dunks and nicely finished off with a canvas messenger bag. The color scheme of the sneakers adds that extra pop of color that is matched on top without overbearing the neutral tones that balance the rest of this laid-back ensemble.
The classic varsity jacket has made a comeback. Long before they were a hit on the runways, authentic and vintage pieces have been available on the racks at your local thrift shops. Now, with a modern cut, many polished and rejuvenated choices have been spotted on Fashionistas and Fashionistos across the world.
Hint: Prefer a personalized varsity jacket just like the good ol’ days? ASOS offers plenty of simple and unembellished varsity jackets ready for your one-of-a-kind touch. Inspect your local flea market, thrift and antique shops to find vintage patches and cool embellishments that can be mixed and match your way, after all, you are the most valuable player!
