WHAT TO WEAR: Tailgating

March 9th, 2016 at 2:00am

Spirit-wear is always something easy to throw on when you go to college, especially for tailgating season. But you also don’t have to go all out with full-on body paint or head-to-toe with your school colors. This Fashionista made a statement with a green and white varsity jacket. It’s perfect for tailgates or games, but also extremely doable for going out with friends.

Varsity jackets are very on-trend right now. They were seen at Tommy Hilfiger’s fall 2015 ready-to-wear show and have been seen on many style stars, including Gigi Hadid. To follow what this Fashionista did, just keep it simple underneath with an all-black ensemble—black leggings or jeans and some cool sneakers. These sneakers actually have a subtle floral design on them, which makes them so much better. You could easily match your sneakers to school colors for an even more spirited look.

To wear varsity jackets outside of any school event or function, opt for a neutral color instead. Just wear any outfit and then add a varsity jacket. If you want to be a little bit more dressy, you can always wear a tighter dress with some ankle boots and then add a varsity jacket on top. You will instantly have a sportier and laid back vibe.

One Simple Change: To transition this outfit into a nighttime outfit, just take the varsity jacket off, switch the shoes to ankle boots or over-the-knee boots, and you’re all set. Since it’s all black underneath, you could even add a faux fur vest on top.
