It’s high school Homecoming season, and if you’ve been too busy stalking your former classmates on Facebook to pay attention to the newest trends, you may be surprised at what’s hot for the winter season ahead! Letterman jackets, also known as varsity jackets, are making a big comeback with chic designer versions that put an upscale spin on the classic oversized style. Even if you’re long past your school days – no matter how hard you try convincing others that it wasn’t that long ago – you can still rock this classmate-inspired trend, and without resurrecting bad memories of your sophomore year yearbook photo, for that matter! Relive your days as head of the class with the varsity quarterback’s jacket draped around your shoulders… or show exactly how hot you would have looked rockin’ the basketball star’s jacket, if he had been smart enough to give you a second look! Whether warm and woolly or leather-paneled and sleek, you’re bound to find a version you love that’s too cool for school!
