The Letterman Jacket – what is considered to be the boyfriend jacket of the season for ladies, in replacement for the boyfriend blazer last year and the year before that, boyfriend jeans. I seemed to have fallen in love with the style of jacket last year with the discovery of this Club Monaco jacket for $20CA on sale from $150CA. What seems to be a current trend this season, whether your budget is high or low, leather or pleather – I decided on an inexpensive version from Divided Blue by H&M for $59.95CA. It fits more than just okay and of course with the black and grey, I thought it was just perfect. Who knows, I could fall out of love with it by next season. Another suggestion I would say is take a little hunt inside second hand stores – you’re bound to find a varsity jacket for sure with good leather sleeves too.

For the ladies – instead of just pairing your letterman jacket with jeans and sneakers try pairing it with a dress. Play around with the jacket a bit and be witty about it. A romantic feminine dress to contrast the jacket could be fun or even try it with slim fit trousers and a blouse. You can even pair the jacket with a jersey maxi dress, with layered bangles and a clutch. Make it your own and most importantly, just have fun with it. After all it’s just a jacket!
