Fall 2012 Trend: Making Varsity

November 9, 2012 • Fashion Blog, Trends

I waited a long time to make the varsity team (in soccer). So glad I don’t have to wait long again to partake in the hot Varsity Jacket trend for Fall 2012 this time around. At first I thought, “I am way too old to pull this look off.” But then I started seeing a dare I say, more sophisticated take on the varsity jacket? It’s this season’s “must-have.” The more adult approach to the varsity jacket or bomber is to look for preppy meets edgy. Personally I feel if you go for the real deal or one that has lettering and numbers, you will look like you are trying too hard. Leave that jacket for the 20 year-old it was meant for. I adore the mixed medium variety like printed panels mixed with leather. Or wool and faux fur. There are so many options you are sure to find a rendition that takes you far away from the water fountain and lockered hallways of days past. Here is a roundup of 10 varsity jackets that are bound to become a favorite:

1. DKNY Reversible Satin Bomber Jacket, $595
