Wear It Now - The Varsity Jacket


With the World Series going on in San Francisco, it's fair to say I'm feeling a bit sporty. As far as I'm concerned the collegiate cool look of varsity jacket is a fashion statement we all need to welcome into our repertoire this fall. 



Not only do varsity jackets have a "too cool for school" look when casually worn as a cape, but they are a great way to toughen up a classic ladylike ensemble. A white and gray varsity jacket looks unexpectedly uptown chic and a dark bodied baseball jacket adds downtown edge. 




Whether you want to keep it classic and go for a solid two toned varsity jacket, or add a little flair with a patterned body, there are plenty of options to choose from. Personally, I'm kind of dying over this men's knit bomber jacket  - I'd wear it over something sleek and slim to play with proportions. What about you?
