This season you don’t have to be a member of the Cheerios or date the captain of the football team to get your hands on a letterman jacket. Collegiate inspired bombers, defined by a contrasting trim, slouchy sleeves, and mix of materials, are popping up all over the fashion blogosphere from Cheetah is the New Black to Penny Pincher Fashion. With spring’s unpredictable weather, we agree there’s no better transitional layering piece than a great light weight jacket. All the better if it’s quirky and vintage-inspired. What do you think? Are varsity jackets a trend you’re revisiting?
