STYLE GURU STYLE: Dark Side Of The Varsity

At Loewe’s fall 2012 ready-to-wear runway show, Stuart Vevers was noticed for his subtle, yet stylish approach to leather. I was inspired by the formal ridding habits, full jackets and a beautiful textures of the show. His smart view of the masculine and feminine juxtaposition appealed to my tomboy tastes. The line featured casual varsity jackets elegantly combined with circle skirts and riding pants.

It has been a while since I have worn a varsity jacket. Here in Brazil, they are not as common as they are abroad. The traditional printed varsity jacket was a bit too much for my subtle tastes. However, everything changed for me when I saw that black leather varsity jacket on the Loewe runway. It felt meant for me. Because the jacket is in just one color, you can really see the texture of the fabrics. The traditional use of leather sleeves with the wool torso is made more elegant and mature through the all black coloring.

It is no wonder why varsity jackets are so popular and iconic of our college days. The jacket is a perfect go-to in any situation. It is a comfortable, casual and stylish jacket that works perfectly for any collegiate. I have now found the perfect varsity for my somber and dark tastes. There is a perfect varsity jacket waiting for you too! All you have to do is look hard enough to find it.
