Varsity Jackets Also known as “Letterman” jackets – for obvious reasons – varsity jackets date back to the Thirties and have always been associated with American jock culture. The body of the jacket is usually made from boiled wool with contrasting leather sleeves and a banded collar and cuffs.A letter jacket is a baseball-styled jacket traditionally worn by high school and college students in the United States to represent school and team pride as well as to display personal awards earned in athletics, academics or activities.
When our parents were in high school, a way to show your girl that you wanted to “go steady” with them was to give them your Letterman or “varsity” jacket. Nowadays, they are an up and coming fashion statement! I myself am rocking the trend, and I think that you should too! Here are a few ways to do it.
Do you have a favorite hooded jacket or sweatshirt? Put it on and then layer your Varsity Jacket over it! Not only will this keep you warm, but it will also add character to your outfit. Add in a beanie and you will have a totally cozy combo.
Pair your varsity jacket with your favorite pair of jeans and some white Keds. This gives your ensemble a little throwback flare and is nice and simple. If you want to add even more “cute” to the combo, braid your hair and add a ribbon to the bottom of it. Adorable!
If you want to take the dressier route, layer your Letterman jacket over a office Dress.It will add a great attractive look to you. It’s not surprising then, that walking into the office in one of these luxed up jackets will pretty much guarantee a day full of compliments. Source
