All right babes, I am starting off Spring with a must-have piece in your wardrobe. There's a jacket of choice that has a sporty silhouette: Say hello to the varsity jacket. Compared to the overly baggy varsity jacket we wore in high school, the updated version is leaner throughout the body and less bulky in the arms.
Why I love the varsity jacket
Because I can grab it and go. I love a good blazer, but sometimes I feel like its too serious for my 'running errands' or 'meeting a friend for lunch' look. Although it gives me an authleisure look, I don't have to be in my sneakers.
How you can wear it
I styled my varsity jacket with my distressed patchwork jeans, and a silk slip cami and black pumps. Other days I have worn it with my skinny jeans, a white tee and black booties. If you really want to take it to the next level, I think it would be darling with a skirt. Wear the varsity jacket with this gold pleated skirt, a silk slip cami and strappy sandals and you are golden.
The varsity jacket can be found at Sanem's. Jacket runs true to size - I am wearing a small. Call the shop to place your order at 708.524.5450 or visit me at 134 N Oak Park Avenue in Oak Park.
