How to Style a Varsity Jacket
Varsity jackets have had such a comeback in the last two years, it seems as if everyone has one! Here we'll cover how to wear one to suit your own personal style and rock that look in 2022.
What is a varsity jacket?
A varsity jacket is also known as a Letterman jacket and is a super classic item of clothing - in fact, it's been worn by athletes for well over 100 years. In case you're curious, the term "letterman" refers to the varsity letters earned in school and sport competitions and "varsity" is used as a synonym for "high school."
Why are varsity jackets so popular?
This new wave of popularity may be attributed to the classic-looking varsity jacket's ability to work with anything and everything – from vintage clothing items like rockabilly dresses and overalls to modern pieces like ripped jeans and graphic tees. It's the perfect go-to when you're in between fashion cycles and just need something cool to throw on. It can look preppy or grungy depending on how you style it.
How to style women's varsity jackets
What we love about these jackets is that your options are nearly endless when it comes to styling them. You can wear them with anything from a cute mini skirt to your favourite pair of mom jeans. It's all about what you decide to do with it! Here are some different ways to rock yours.
At Tropii Loungewear we love the casual look and have just the thing to pair your varsity jacket with. Add a pair of our varsity joggers to complete your loungewear look with our favourite combo - comfort and style! The best part is you can get a matching set, such as brown joggers with a brown varsity jacket - making it a no brainer when you need something quick to wear.
You can also style your varsity jacket to give off more of a grunge vibe, such as pairing it with a band tee and ripped jeans. This look is edgier and more contrasting, but we think it can look really cool.
For a sportier look, just add a pair of shorts or leggings with a track top or sweatshirt and your favourite trainers! If this is what you're into, we've got you totally covered with our matching black jogger and black varsity jacket set. This outfit is perfect for when you want to look cute but still give off a sporty vibe.
Varsity jackets aren't just about looking casual and sporty, they can be amazing for a preppy high school look too! With our selection of cropped varsity jackets, just add a mini skirt and trainers, or even pastel-coloured trousers for a more upbeat preppy vibe - perfect for everyday wear.
If you love flower crowns and boho fashion, try pairing a varsity jacket with a light dress or midi skirt and some chunky sneakers. Add a hat if you're looking for more of an outdoorsy feel.
Here at Tropii Loungewear, we love the varsity jacket style. These classic jackets used to be for practicality but have now evolved into more of a statement piece. With our range of jackets and varsity joggers, we say why not do both?
