This season has been all about outerwear. Leather coats, varsity jackets, jean jackets and kimonos have hit their peaks in popularity on campus. Today's Fashionista took an exciting move away from the trendy '50s letterman look by bringing back the '80s windbreaker.
Nowadays, windbreakers emit coolness and a unique fashion sense. Daring and stylish, this look speaks of true character. This Fashionista confidently wore her turquoise, purple, blue and pink vintage jacket with a simple black top and leggings. The grey socks and lace up wedges added a funky flair to the outfit. The floral pattern on the back of her coat was so eye-catching and reminded me of Andy Warhol's flower paintings.
Rummaging thrift stores is the best choice when looking for an awesome windbreaker. Besides thrifting, online vintage stores such as the Rusty Zipper have a great selection of racing jackets resembling this Fashionista's. Etsy, a website on which Fashionista/os can buy and sell their unique creations, has a variety of similar jackets that no one else will ever have. This Spinnaker jacket has all the elements of a hip coat. Bright colors and a glossy look are key features when shopping for '80s outerwear. This sport jacket shows technicolor and sure to stand out on campus. When thinking vintage outerwear, think a '80s windbreaker!
