Dear Sasha, can you help me find a varsity jacket? Are they still in? P

Are you sure you’re name isn’t Duana? Not only is Du legitimately obsessed with anything and everything to do with teens and teens in school, she’s especially overjoyed when she puts an outfit together that looks like she just registered for Dartmouth. So P, this is for you and for Du. 

Whether you’re Canadian or not you’ll recognize one of our most iconic brands, Roots. Last year our boy Drake teamed up with the brand to customize his own varsity jacket and from there everyone needed and wanted one. So click away here, here and here to get your own.

I’m seriously down with this baseball inspired jacket from Free People. Rarely do you see denim mixed into the design, so it gets major points for uniqueness. 

By now  you know burgundy is a must this season and this Topshop jacket fits the color bill. Plus, it says “loser” in the back which is really really funny. Also keeping with the color trend is this beautiful wool crepe and leather one by Theory.

For all you non-leather lovers, I’ve got your back – check out this slick, all black varsity jacket here

If you’re looking to step this trend up to the next sartorial level then this Stella McCartney is the one for you.

Finally, my favorite one of the bunch is this great navy wool Surface To Air jacket. While it still holds true to its varsity roots, there’s an element of cool which adds the right amount of fashion edge.

Oh, and while you’re at it, you might as well go all out and shove one of these (click here and here) collegiate Jil Sander sweaters underneath. It’s the right thing to do….
