STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Varsity Blues

We all know those movies or TV shows with the stereotypical jock and his letterman jacket, sitting at the popular table or stealing the freshman’s lunch money in the crowded halls. Gone are the days where only the “cool” kids are seen wearing this classic look! Now, anyone can style and rock a varsity jacket!

This Fashionisto personalizes his varsity jacket with a stylish, printed button-down and plum-colored pants. Having a varsity jacket with neutral colors makes it really versatile and easy to pair with a lot of different, potential outfits. In this case, this Fashionisto chose to pair the neutral colors of the jacket with the cool-toned, yet colorful shades of the blue and plum. These colors really complement each other, not to mention look great and pop out in the muted surroundings of the winter season.

One element that I particularly love about this varsity jacket, is the gray and black color-block detail. This cool look helps to modernize the traditional style of a varsity jacket and definitely makes it unique! Even though this is an updated version of a classic style, the jacket keeps the trademark black and white lines on the sleeves, collar and waist. To top off the look, this Fashionisto channels effortless style with his leather and canvas Vans.

As time has told, this classic jacket will never go out of style and is always an interesting piece to enhance a fashion lover’s closet!

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “I like that I can wear the jacket with a lot of different things. It’s really easy to change things up, for instance I can wear it with what I’m wearing now, but on another day I can throw it on with a graphic T-shirt and jeans and be set.”
