Varsity jackets were a trend last fall and this past spring and it looks like they might still be happening for fall 2014. The cold season is around the corner but there’s still that period between the end of summer and the beginning of winter when you won’t be needing a full on winter coat but you’ll still be needing some kind of jacket. A varsity jacket is a great option to have among your fall weather outerwear collection.

HOW TO WEAR
For girls over the age of twenty-ten who like the look but fear being mocked for trying to look young, just switch to a more mature tote bag and jeans that are not distressed; but keep in mind that many famous ladies over twenty-ten (come on, of course I know there’s no such number) wear distressed jeans without concern for what anyone else thinks. If you want to wear distressed jeans and you’re not in your twenties wear distressed jeans. It’s nobody’s business.
