Runway Remix

Varsity Jacket & Skirt


3.1 Phillip Lim Runway, Spring ’13


Victoria Beckham Runway, Spring ’14


Fendi, Resort ’15


Rebecca Minkoff Runway, Fall ’14

The “varsity” jacket, sometimes called the “bomber” jacket also, has been coming down runways for a few seasons now.  They are pretty much EVERYWHERE, which usually makes me NOT want to wear something, but in this case, I pulled from some old runway inspiration (my favorite varsity jacket looks above) and challenged myself to find a way to wear mine in a way that was different, and me.  Also, come mid-winter, my everyday jeans-booties-sweater routine is starting to feel like a rut…


Grey varsity jacket: JCrew (sold out, but similar ones here)| Black crepe flared skirt: JCrew | Grey linen T-shirt: Madewell | Black leather booties: Vince |Gold chain choker: Baublebar | Gold chain and black leather bracelet: Zara (sold out)

I like the idea of pairing one of these jackets (which are a nice change up from a blazer or denim jacket) with a skirt; the contrast in sportiness and femininity appeals to me.  Gold chains and black booties, instead of dainty or romantic jewelry and a more feminine heel, feel right for me with this look, to keep it from reading too “school girl”– they add a toughness that the outfit needs.
