I absolutely love varsity jackets. For me, they should be a staple in every casual chic girl’s closet. They remind me of the 50s, and my infatuation with letterman jackets. It’s so American. It’s so preppy. It’s so me. According to Highsnobiety, the letterman jacket dates back to Harvard during the mid-1800s. From Harvard to the hip hop culture, the varsity jacket appeals to the masses. I remember in college I was so happy when I finally got my hands on a Roc-a-wear varsity jacket thanks to my sissy. I used to wear that jacket everywhere, and I do mean everywhere. Parties at the Union. Going to class. Headed to work. Stomp down weekend. Cotton Club. I was so sad when I could no longer fit it so I replaced it with my AKA varsity jacket. The jacket I only wore a few times before it got lost in my cousin’s trunk (never to be seen again). To this date, those are two of my favorite jackets that I’ve owned in my stylish life, and now I desperately need another one. I simply adore this Coach Cotton Varsity Jacket worn by Gracie Mercedes of Style Me GrasieI and this Gucci Crackle Leather Bomber Jacket recently worn by Tatiana Latsko at the Chicago Gucci Reopening Celebration. If money weren’t a factor, both of these beauties would be hanging in my closet.
With that being said, I picked this look for today simply because I love varsity jackets! I’ll try to recreate this look for under $300.
