In The Varsity

Sometimes things just come together in a way that works. I love to get girly and dressed up as you guys know but I do love being comfortable and casual. I have always loved varsity jackets. This might have something to do with my appreciation of vintage fashion? When I take a look in my wardrobe I see a series of jackets all with a varsity cut. I currently have 3 Michael Jackson ones, 2 basic casual ones and now this hot metallic number! Navabi contacted me over Christmas and asked me if I would like to select a gift to celebrate the holidays. It was actually Hanna who spotted this one and was like ‘this jacket is so you!’. Of course she was right, I wanted it as soon as I saw it!

In some ways i’m a typical woman, I love shinny things! Metallic and sparkly clothing items draw me in the same way a woman is pulled to jewels. I know we’re in the new season but I still have an appreciation for metallic fashion. What I love about this jacket is that unlike many, the distressed texture adds some edge and difference to things. The long-line cut makes this one workable with bodycon dresses, jeans, tunics, t-shirts and a multitude of items. I should note though that the glitter does like to get on other clothes so you may wish to select light or grey items to wear with it! Most of us like to up-size with jackets and coats to accommodate the clothes under and make room for our bust. I got this one in size 26/28.

Monochrome outfits for me are so easy to wear and can be casual with a twist. I decided that rather than wear black and white i’d select black and silver items. Evans recently sent me a pair of coated jeggings and I thought that the texture against the metallic jacket would be a fun look. These are a true to fit size and are high waisted. I’m wearing these in a size 24. I feel that black items are so easy to incorporate into the wardrobe and make for a great basic.

Sometimes you want to wear an outfit that is simple, comfortable and effortless. I do find that items like varsity jackets can be worn in so many ways. If you wanna see how I wore one in a sexier and dressier look check out this post from last year. As I always say multipurpose clothing items are great for those of us on a budget! I plan on wearing this jacket with a series of different items. Why worry about people seeing you in the same thing more than once. It gives you the chance to be creative?!

I thought pair these items with an oversized black top and i’d put my hair in bunches, keep my makeup simple and wear my signature hoop earrings with my long cross chain. A simple yet flashy look all at the same time lol. As I said before I don’t think you can go wrong with shinny things lol. Maybe next i’ll add a pop of colour to switch things up a little. Stay tuned, who knows I may include this one in another outfit on the blog one day!

    I just love the varsity jacket look! Casual with a hint of vintage. Yours reminds me so much of my daughter. She loves anything with pizzaz and extra sparkle. I’ve always thought it matched her personality, as I bet it does with yours! x
