LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Not Just for Jocks

Let's Hear it for the Boys

No longer are letterman jackets meant for jocks in high school hallways. This season, varsity jackets for both men and women made their way down the runways. From Givenchy to rag & bone, letterman jackets could not be missed on the fall 2011 runways. Celebrities are also rocking this look; recently, Kayne West, Elle Fanning and Lady Gaga have been spotted sporting letterman jackets, each giving it their own unique twist.

This Fashionisto pulled off his letterman jacket flawlessly. I had to ask where he got it, just in case he said it was from his high school sports days (which I would have totally believed). Letterman jackets are regaining popularity because of their relaxed, comfortable fit. Their unique patches and color combinations make each jacket totally different from the next. Wearing this jacket is definitely an easy way to turn your outfit from boring to amazing.

Letterman jackets can be paired with just about anything. In this case, this Fashionisto paired his navy blue and white letterman with red Toms and a relaxed pair of khaki cords. I personally love his color combination of red, white and blue, which make this outfit even more classic.

Hint: When wearing a letterman jacket, try to stay away from looking like a jock in high school. Pair it with dark, high-quality denim, and either nice sneakers or a leather shoe. This will ensure you will not be mistaken as a high school football player when out and about.
