With that cold gust of wind we received from Hurricane Sandy, it is finally time to break out the winter coats here in Atlanta. One of my favorites this season is the variation on the classic varsity jacket of our high school years. The look is sporty without being too obvious. It’s channeling the “your quarterback boyfriend let you borrow his jacket after the prom” look. Similar to how it was back in the day, it is equally coveted now. Whether it is the monogrammed version or more of a printed matter, it is a total must have for all Fashionistas and Fashionistos.
I spotted this Fashionista rocking a varsity jacket in a pretty combo of blue and gray. The adorable jacket blends nicely with her worn-in skinny jeans and simple V-neck top. For a similar look to take you back to your high school days, try this one from Madewell. If you’re looking for more of a chic variation, one of my favorites is from Joe's Jeans. I love the leather sleeves and black watch plaid to keep you cozy in the elements. This Fashionista finishes her look off with a killer pair of lace-up booties with buckles and a colorful statement choker from Forever 21. Another way to style your varsity would be in a more feminine way. Try a swingy mini skirt, a graphic tee and a pair of oxford lace-ups to channel your inner schoolgirl. Regardless, the athletic inspired jacket will have you winning every time.
