This has been a long, cold, dark and hard winter. While the moto jacket may be one of the hottest fashion must-haves, it is starting to feel a bit too dark and heavy of a look for spring. We love the the über-preppy varsity jacket or letterman sweater as an alternative.
The look is light and playful and quite versatile. We especially like a vintage variety or limited edition piece. We found a great selection on eBay. Among our finds was a 1976 girls softball jacket, an Alaska 80s jacket has the cutest patch of a cartoon cheerleader and a vintage Olympic team USA version seems entirely appropriate.
We love the look of a jacket either over sized or hitting the hip. The style looks particularly adorable on kids. We suggest experimenting with the styling of your letterman outerwear. Try it with a short flared skirt, shorts, or jeans (skinny or boyfriend). As far as footwear, dress it up with booties or heels, or keep it casual with slip-on or oxfords.
