Varsity Jackets Are Trending — Here Are 7 We Love

Preppy cool.

Last Updated on August 10, 2021

It could be the Olympic fever or the continued rise of street style, but I’ve been seeing varsity jackets everywhere.

People seem to be ardently looking to get one for themselves too. There’s been a 13% increase in searches for varsity jackets, according to Lyst. And Saint Laurent’s wool jacket and Off-White’s logo patch jacket are what’s on top of many’s wishlists.

Of course, it’s not just the designers who are ready to help you sport the trend. There are lots of options from the high street and some indie brands.

If you want something that’s a bit more classic but with patches galore, there’s one from adidas that’s perfect for you. The body of the jacket is mostly black but it has patches that are colourful but still not over the top.

Now, if you want something that’s more ‘out there,’ consider the Upcycled vintage varsity jacket from Wolf and Badger. Not only does it come in a bright lilac colour but it also has a checkerboard pattern and frilly fringe.

Tread the middle ground between the first two and get the Neutrals blue varsity jacket from Jaded London. It looks just like the preppy ones you see actual students wear but better in that it’s oversized and its sleeves are made of vegan leather.

When it comes to styling though, don’t think that you have to limit yourself to pairing your jacket with another street style-inspired piece. You can definitely wear one with a dress or a top and skirt combo. You can wear it however you want, really!

To help you better decide how to sport the trend, here are more varsity jacket picks.
