Hitomi… Varsity Jacket

April 11, 2014

The weather is changing here in the Windy City. Spring is finally here! It’s time for a versatile jacket for those still-chilly days. So what’s the answer to this sartorial conundrum?


The varsity jacket. Sport chic is here to stay, and it’s no longer a niche style owned by Stella McCartney, Junya Watanabe and Jeremy Scott. Lots of designers are channeling athletic wear for Spring 2014. Riccardo Tisci and his Nike collaboration, Adidas x Topshop, and even Tory Burch is hooking up with Fitbit.




So why is the varsity jacket, often relegated to small town high schools and movies set in the 1950s, now suddenly so hot? It’s simple, it’s chic, and it’s very, very now. Everyone from high-fashion darling Jonathan Saunders to NY sportswear king Alexander Wang and of course, J.Crew, are producing varsity jackets this season.


I made it easy for you and picked out three of my favorite varsity jackets, but you’ll be seeing lots of them in stores this season. Leave a comment or tweet me when you buy yours!¬†Get the look with one of these stylish varsity jackets:
