So what if I didn’t go to school in America, have a name that starts with M or stepped foot into a classroom in over a decade. When it comes to classic old school Americana, the varsity jacket sits at the head of the class and I can’t get mine off my back. Never mind the sporty history,  there’s no need for hand eye co-ordination when rocking these jackets.  Whether you’ve earned your letter or just want to feel retro-cool, these athletically inclined beauties are perfect for bringing a fun sporty feel to your look.

Light enough for over the shoulders and heavy enough for our temperamental climate, these bombers range from the classic Letterman variety—perfect to pair with jeans or cigarette pants —to upgraded silky versions that I’ve been seeing everywhere that can be flung over a frock. I’m literally obsessed with the bomber trend but adding an Americana vintage twist sets Varsity Jackets apart from the rest. Just choose your team colours and you’re good to go!

From classic, leather-sleeved bombers to  printed and quilted, old-fashioned letterman styles will add just the right amounts of prep and edge to any getup.  And, remember: You’re totally part of the cool crowd — with or without the jacket, of course.

Back then, these school staples had to be earned, so wearing one has always been a point of pride. Now, you can incorporate these retro-chic cover ups into your current wardrobe without jumping hurdles or scoring goals. I’ve seen some incredible vintage styles in shops like Beyond Retro or even eBay, but I did it the old fashioned way and stole this one from my boyfriend. He may be a few years past soccer star, but damn the boy has taste! From classic, leather-sleeved and patched to printed Varsity styles have certainly earned their stripes in the style stakes. Now, which way to the bleachers?
