Have bad memories of your middle school uniforms? Although varsity styles can have a bad rap, it’s really up to the wearer to add new details and make the look their own. College is an exciting time and it’s important to dress the part! Whether it’s flaunting a sporty letterman jacket, a cute plaid skirt, or even classy oxfords, collegiate inspired pieces never really go out of style.

This Fashionisto takes the varsity trend and adds his own twist by pairing a color-blocked varsity jacket with cargo pants and a hoodie. His unique look shines through in not only the color scheme but in the pant pockets and hoodie add-ons. His navy pants and cream-colored shoes accentuate the main piece in this look—the blue and beige color-blocked varsity jacket. The color palette is very clean and minimal but still manages to pack a punch.

The pant pockets, although subtle, take this look up just a few notches. It adds a certain dimension that denim pants just don’t have and it matches perfectly with the jacket.

Layering is also essential to any great look, especially in the winter. This Fashionisto created more casual and class appropriate vibes by layering a black T-shirt hoodie underneath his jacket. San Diego has the true definition of California winters which allow for students to layer lightly.

He finishes off his look with a classic black backpack and cream-colored low-top Converse. Although not quite athleisure, this sporty look can take you wherever you need to go with maximum comfort and style.
