varsity blues

{Forever 21 varsity jacket, thrifted chambray button-down, J. Brand jeans, Chinese Laundry boots (chic version here), Lulu Frost x J. Crew winged necklace c/o}

This is my interpretation of "the sloppy tuck"- a look often imitated, rarely duplicated, and obviously something I still need to work on! Oh well, it's called fashion, and I like to have fun with it. Hence the varsity jacket. I got this baby as soon as it hit the trend circuit and the subdued color palette has made it a staple in my wardrobe- whether dressing up or down. I was initially going to wear a quilted sleeved coat but changed my mind last minute- I think this look is so much better anyways. I even got a thumbs up on my look from one of the guys in the office! 

And yes, I know, one of the stones on my beautiful Lulu Frost x J. Crew necklace fell out (super bummed out)! Surprising since J. Crew is usually great quality- but I just had to wear it with the outfit- that ever happen to you?

  1. Love the jacket. It doesn't look bulky which is a bonus in my book. On another note, rock that "sloppy tuck" hard! :)

  2. That J.Crew collection has been really lovely overall, so go on and rock it. You can get replacement stones or at least stand ins at a good trimming store. This outfit is so collegiate and edgy and amaze.

  6. You definitely know how to rock a varsity jacket and make it chic with accessories. I have yet to master the sloppy tuck without it looking horribly messy. :P

  7. You put it together well. The half tuck is hard to conquer but good job. Also digging the shades and necklace.
