Temperatures are decreasing, trees are losing their leaves and the days are getting shorter. Winter is coming (yes that’s a game of thrones reference, who doesn’t like game of thrones??). Personally, I don’t mind the cold weather and shorter days. It gets me excited about the holidays and spending time with friends and family. Besides that, coats and jackets are my favorite garments, which makes winter one of my favourite seasons.
How to wear
As for the look, I teamed up with America Today to showcase an America Icon: the varsity jacket. The jacket is known as a traditional garment, that is worn at high schools and colleges in America. Any lightweight jacket has my attention and this one with the leather sleeves caught my eye. Varsity jackets can basically be worn with everything and are easy to style to suit your personal look, making them the perfect casual jacket. My personal favourite is the black or navy varsity jacket. I styled it with a dark blue denim jeans and simple white shirt. A white shirt is a great way to finish the look as it contrasts against the dark jacket and jeans.
