Outfit Post #61: Varsity Trend (Part 1 of 2)


I was approached by the ASOS Fashion Finder team a few weeks ago to be a part of their trend guide for this upcoming Autumn/Winter. Seven trends were given to seven bloggers to portray in the most wearable manner. I was chosen to style according to the Varsity Trend, which I express as you’ve seen above. I teamed up with Urban Outfitters to put this look together – I landed on picking this jacket, sweatshirt and socks to style up.

Take a look at the trends on ASOS here.

The bomber jacket, the sweatshirt, the skater skirt and hi-top socks, I feel like I should be surrounded by jocks and cheerleaders. This trend is rapidly becoming a street-style favourite, seen globally on the fashion conscious individuals. What really enables the trend to shine through is a bomber jacket and skater skirt combined – pair those two in any form or colour and you’re already a varsity street-style pro. Rocking new trends adds that much more versatility to your style – take chances and try new things.

This is a very retro and edgy trend, I may have taken it to a very daring point with the entire ensemble, but it need not be if it’s out of your comfort zone. You could switch the sweatshirt for a plain t-shirt, wear ankle socks instead, or simply stick to one colour tone – making the look more mellow and approachable.

I created two looks to portray this trend, expect the next look up on the blog in the next few days.
