LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Varsity Reds

Let's Hear it for the Boys

As school reopened here at UF, students came dressed to impress to kick off the spring semester. In the midst of all the well-dressed students, I spotted this Fashionisto in a heavily populated area on campus near library west. He is rocking a plain white tee layered underneath a red and white varsity jacket. To accompany his trendy jacket, he is also sporting red and white Vans and a pair of vintage John Lennon inspired sunglasses.  Even in the chilly winter weather I love how this Fashionisto does a good job of matching his accessories with his varsity jacket for a well-put-together look.

Nothing says college boy “swag” more than a fresh pair of kicks to match your outfit. In the case of this Fashionisto, he is rocking a pair of famous Vans, which is a skater brand of sneakers. Vans have grown increasingly popular over the last few years and have started a sneaker epidemic on college campuses all around the nation. But you don’t have to be a professional skater or even know how to skate to wear these shoes; the skater style of shoe is simply a trend that is popular between both male and female college students.

The varsity jacket is the focal point of the outfit and a great way to keep warm while still looking effortlessly cool. If you are looking to invest in a new jacket this winter season, it definitely wouldn’t hurt to add this piece to your wardrobe. It is not your average jacket and is a great piece to use for layering in the cold winter weather.  This Fashionisto complements his varsity jacket with a pair of dark washed denim, which are cuffed at the bottom for a more tailored look. Cuffing your jeans is a great way to make your shoes more visible (if they are a must-see element of the outfit) and a great way to achieve the well-put-together look.

Hint: Make this look your own by customizing the color scheme to your liking. Don’t be afraid to play up different color palettes with a multi-colored varsity jacket.
