Shopping Bag: Varsity

Sporty spice.A+ spring style.

The varsity look is classic Americana - a preppy-meets-sporty look that has gone worldwide. Interestingly, this trend was a sleeper hit on the runways for Spring 2016, but it's now making a major comeback on the streets. The look has been spotted on everyone from artist/model Langley Fox Hemingway to bloggers like Danielle Bernstein. Personally, we're turning to inspiration from the 1970s cult-classic film Love Story, as well as Tommy Hilfiger's Fall 2015 collection, which are both filled with "ivy league" looks galore. So whether your sport is football or rugby, lacrosse or hockey - there's a Letterman jacket, jumper, or polo dress ready for you to show your collegiate pride.  *Disclaimer: If after reading this, you decide to watch  Love Story for yourself, then I do suggest stocking up on an ample amount of tissues, and whatever you do, don't wear mascara.

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
