The varsity jacket has been hovering around the fashion scene in the past few months, and it looks like it is here to stay for a while. The varsity jacket, also known as the letterman jacket, is a throwback to high school or college where athletes would wear these as a symbol of team pride. The body would mostly be wool while the sleeves would be leather, and the look was always pretty casual.
Nowadays, however, this jacket has received a total makeover. It’s pretty common to see varsity jackets made of different patterns and materials other than bi-color wool and leather–I’ve even been seeing floral prints and faux fur! Even though the jacket might look different than the traditional ‘letterman’ style, it naturally is difficult to incorporate into your wardrobe because of its history. But with the right outfit, you can definitely wear this piece anywhere–even in the workplace.
