(jacket - vintage Pepsi Co. varsity jacket | tee - Club Monaco | jeans - Naked & Famous | shoes - Vans)
A varsity jacket can easily be used as your every day fall jacket. It's warm, it's got a unique design when compared to a leather jacket or an overcoat, and it's stylish. The varsity jacket does bring an air of youth and exuberance when worn--but you can't blame it; after all, it did originate among high school and university athletes. The easiest way to rock your varsity jacket is to keep it simple. Using it as your every day jacket means wearing it casually--just a tee or a light sweater on chilly days will do fine.
Because of the athletic nature of this jacket, a good amount of ego and testosterone should be displayed when wearing the varsity jacket. Don't be afraid to knock books off the shelves of your local library, or even stuff a nerd into a nearby locker.
If you are venturing into the office, don't shy away from the varsity jacket. Wear it over your shirt and tie (not necessarily over your suit jacket, however).
- This fall, try out a varsity jacket. It might surprise you.
- Making it your every day jacket doesn't exclude it from a nice shirt and tie--feel free to wear this bad boy to the office.
- Find a tee that has some length to it, but also fits around your chest, shoulders, and arms. It'll make you look more masculine without looking like you bought it at Baby Gap.
Stay classy (or at least attempt to),
Wear It Write.
