Although high school is a thing of the past for us here at, we have been noticing a scholastic-era trend: varsity jackets.

Also known as letterman jackets, they’re lightweight and versatile. Wear them with a white t-shirt and and jeans for a classic off-duty outfit, or pair one with leather pants and statement jewelry for a sexier style.

They also comes in a variety of fabrics and fits (think cropped, fitted and silk), but we’re still loving the over-sized boyfriend-look–if only for nostalgia sake.
