Now that it’s getting colder, it’s time to inject some vintage-inspired style into your fall wardrobe. Don’t settle for a hoodie or a pea coat when you can set yourself apart with a stylish and sporty letterman jacket. Gone are the days when this look was reserved for only the highest achieving jocks. Now, anyone can rock a letterman jacket, and no matter what your signature style is, the letterman jacket can be flawlessly incorporated. Here’s a few ways to try it:
Not much of a stretch here, as this look has been synonymous with the letterman jacket since its inception. Keep things squeaky clean with light skinny jeans, a plain top, and let the jacket be the focal point.
You don’t have to go preppy to make the letterman jacket work for you. Incorporate your jacket with patterned scarves and a few funky accessories to make this look your own. Pair with plain black pants and a neutral top.
Take sporty style to the streets with the ultimate in sports apparel. Let the jacket speak for itself and stick to monochrome colors. Keep things comfortable by showing a little leg in a nice pair of shorts and couple it with a breezy, loose-fitting top.
Just because the letterman jacket is innately sports-related doesn’t mean you’ve got to switch up your feminine style. Go for the slouchy “boyfriend” look by pairing a flirty skirt with your boxy letterman jacket. Bonus points if you manage to match your lipstick to your chenille patch!
Fashion is cyclical, and we’ve been experiencing a 90s revival for a few years now with high-waisted pants, babydoll dresses, crop tops and dark lipstick coming back in to fashion. Pay homage to that bygone era with a grunge inspired look. Pair high-waisted jeans with a crop top or flannel shirt tied at the wasit. Top with your letterman jacket and finish the look with a classic pair of Chuck Taylor’s.
Even if you identify more with the alternative crowd than the classic All-American jock, you can rock a letterman jacket. Play up the juxtaposition of styles by pairing this preppy classic with ripped jeans and edgy jewelry.
