Outfit Of The Day: Varsity

Today totally confused me, well the weather did at least. I wasn't sure if it was hot, cold, windy or going to rain! Nevertheless, I set my camera up and took some photos like a champion!

Let's rewind to about a year ago varsity jackets were immensely popular, literally everyone had one. All the stores had similar designs with the the same colour schemes. When I started looking around the stores to buy one I wanted something to stand out from the average design.

After failing to find anything amazingly unique in stores I moved my search online. It was there that I found what I wanted. At the top of the Google image search was Rihanna in the most gorgeous varsity jacket I had ever seen. The body was a black, checkered pattern and the sleeves were black leather. I was in love!

Why didn't I buy that jacket you ask? Because it was a A.P.C x Carhartt Schopenhauer jacket priced at $530. Safe to say that this was way out of my budget.

I know that Rihanna wears the best clothes but I was still gutted about the price. Still determined, I kept online and searched for a cheaper alternative. Now I don't know about you, but I think my Voi jacket is the perfect alternative to the Schopenhauer piece.

Like I mentioned, my jacket is by Voi and I bought it online for around £35. Yes £35, I honestly don't know how I do it. I added it to the basket and checked out in less than 20 seconds.

As you can see with my jacket, the body is a speckled grey design and the sleeves are faux leather. The only issue I have is the inside lining. I really wish it wasn't bright red checked, I think it cheapens the look. However, I still love it and I always wear it during the colder months. I bought my jacket a size bigger so I could achieve an oversized look that is perfect in the winter.

Today I styled my jacket with one (of many) of my Boy London tees. I always like to wear a bright t-shirt under dark jackets make the shirt pop!

I hope you all enjoyed today's story! What do you guys think of today's look?
