The varsity jacket may seem like a preppy piece of clothing but these days there are a number of ways to wear a varsity jacket to suit your style. Whether you embrace all things Americana or give it a grunge twist, the varsity jacket is proving to be a versatile piece of clothing. Even more than that, it’s on point with this season’s tendency for sport inspired trends. Take a look at these ways to wear a varsity jacket, as seen on the streets.

1 Ladylike Streetwear

Ladylike StreetwearWhen it comes to ways to wear a varsity jacket, try and think outside the box. Peggy was photographed by Victoria Adamson wearing her varsity jacket with a ladylike full skirt. She goes for a street inspired look and teams her outfit with sneakers and a slouchy cross body bag. A furry stole adds a glam touch. The colours in the outfit aren’t what you’d normally expect but they are well suited for the fall season.

2 Alternative Americana

Here, your classic varsity jacket is teamed with a striped tasseled skirt, printed t-shirt, and red leather handbag. Elements such as the red, white, and blue colour palette are classic Americana but the overall effect of the outfit is one that is a little bit more alternative.

3 Effortlessly Dressed

Effortlessly DressedThis stylish outfit was spotted on the Stylesight blog. Here, a patched varsity jacket is teamed with a chambray shirt dress to create a casually cool daytime outfit. A pair of patent and metallic oxford shoes adds a menswear inspired touch to the look. This is an effortless look that you could easily recreate on your own way.

A pair of wedge sneakers adds a distinctly sporty vibe to the outfit. The apple pouch is also a cute and quirky addition. This is a relaxed look that is perfect for kicking about in during the day.

5 Sport Luxe

Sport LuxeBlogger Camilla from Into The Fold opts for a sport luxe look when styling her varsity jacket. She teams a navy and white jacket with a chunky knit, skinny jeans, and on-trend trainers. She finishes off the look with a quilted black handbag. Without the jacket you have yourself a pretty standard winter uniform but the jacket just adds that extra preppy touch.

6 Cosy Layers

She carries the pink theme throughout with a pink striped outfit. A furry neckwarmer, embellished clutch, and platform booties completes this glam streetwear look.

8 Daytime Grunge

Daytime GrungeDavid Nyanzi snapped this look for the ASOS Fashion Finder site. Here, your usually preppy varsity jacket has been given a slightly grunge treatment by being paired with an oversized t-shirt, sheer tights, and lace-up ankle boots. What would make this outfit even more grunge is if the jacket was worn tied around the waist instead!

9 Not Your Usual Letterman

Not Your Usual LettermanThis outfit was spotted by Stylesight’s street style photographers. This varsity jacket comes in your classic two-tone style but features unexpected floral and tiger motifs where you’d usually find letterman patches. The combination of the jacket, slouchy t-shirt, and leather pants is your typical off-duty look but the hot-pink espadrilles add a distinctly spring/summer flavor to the outfit.

These are just some street style ways to wear the varsity jacket. What do you think of the fashion trend for varsity jackets? Would you or have you worn a varsity jacket out on the street?
