The varsity jacket is your new ‘wear everywhere and with everything’ piece. There are, naturally, a few basic requirements: you want it in silk or satin and slightly cropped, while bold color blocking and a smattering of patches and embroidery are optional – but much welcomed – extras. The relaxed, sporty air of these jackets makes them invaluable for your off-duty wardrobe, and they’re crying out to be slipped on over floral dresses. But pick carefully and they’ll also work with your smarter looks; take your cue from Givenchy, and team a more understated iteration in navy or black with a pleated skirt and high heels for a more polished way of wearing it.
