Show Your School Spirit (or How to Sell Your University Jacket)

In celebration of UP's UAAP cheerdance competition win (woohoo!) and the current varsity jacket trend, we bring you a photo-heavy post on how you can rock your university jacket.

The varsity jacket has been featured repeatedly in the runways this year, both classic versions and updated versions.

Alexander Wang SS2010, Isabel Marant FW2010
Proenza Schouler PF 2010
Alexander Wang may just have started this whole thing, for women anyway.
We once again get a glimpse of Isabel Marant's awesomeness which we've featured in an earlier post.
And those guys at PS gave us school chic for their pre-fall collection that are just totally darling that I wish I could just get out of the house with uncombed hair and a cold expression like theirs and still manage to look this polished.

We here of course just have to try this. So BFJ and I scouted the university for a perfect setting to showcase the two looks I prepared.

It managed to look like an ad for the university's centennial jacket. It turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. Thanks to an ever-patient and charming director/photographer.;)

notice how I am facing just one direction :))

This first look is Isabel Marant-inspired: cropped pants - check, belt - check, striped shirt - check and university jacket - double check! But minus the dangly earrings and I opted for a side pony-tailed hair.

This next one...well, I just wanted to try on the leather skirt. This is the perfect opportunity I suppose.;)
And you could really see how versatile the university jacket can be.

this one is just creepy and cool!
show some university lovin'
The varsity jacket is clearly not just for jocks. Go for the classic sporty or preppy look, pair with heels or sneakers, with a skirt or pants, leather or denim, and with some good ol' school spirit and you have got this look to a tee.
