Varsity jackets are back

Varsity jackets were the best thing to happen for a while until we got overfilled with them. But recently with the weather coming back, there seems to be a drive for people to bring back iconic outwear, which is making a surprisingly major comeback. With that being said one of the outwear piece that is standing out is the varsity jacket.

Those sporting the varsity jacket once more are some of the biggest superstar names. The likes of David Beckham and John Legend have been spotted bringing the hot trend back again. A varsity jacket is a good staple piece to finish off the right look.

David Beckham was spotted wearing a flashy Louis Vuitton blue varsity jacket with some sleek white sleeves. The Louis Vuitton logo was prominently displayed on the chest and left arm. The jacket may quite well be out of most people’s price range, costing around $2,700. But there is no doubt this jacket has sparked in interest in many to brush the dust off of their own varsity jacket sitting in the closet or even go out and by a newer one.

With David Beckham being more of a standout with his jacket, John Legend quietly did the opposite. Legend was seen moving around with a black/gray/white varsity jacket that was missing a standout branding mark on it, but with upon further investigation, it was clear the jacket was Saint Laurent.

A good varsity jacket can take a nice outfit into a great outfit. With the year being 2017 most of the jackets are very colorful and are easy to match with anyone’s personal style taste.  A varsity jacket is sporty, preppy, collegiate, and has a relaxed feel to it.  The jackets can range from some of the cheapest to some of the expensive depending on the color scheme, look, and brand, but there is always a varsity jacket out there for everyone. There is a reason why the varsity jacket can make countless comebacks without ever going out of style.
