You don’t have to set foot on campus to wear varsity. The major league-meets-prepster look is taking athleisure to a new state of style play.
Be a good sport and shop for a vintage logo numbered jersey from your favourite NBA or RFL team. Alternatively, opt for the designer version as seen by Gucci and Moncler. Wear it oversized so you can pass it off as a mini dress or tuck it into a midi skirt for a relaxed tailored look.
Tube socks either plain, striped or with a subtle logo detail is a must whether you’re wearing brogues or two-tone pumps. Like the Tods iteration seen here. I like to “mix material” with my necklaces, layering them in a personal way. A statement beaded choker mixed with pearls and gold link chains is hardly excessive but is certainly individual.

LOOK THREE & FOUR
Add notes of Ivy league with a silk blouse and slip on loafers. Choose an insignia logo cap to show your allegiance. Oversize and layered in proportion makes an off-duty preppy ensemble read: insta-cool. A marble-washed, circa 90s midi skirt and vest is essential.

I often like to shop in the men’s department for the ultimate androgynous dressing. This checked Acne trench will weather all seasons. Contrast with a hint of romance, like with this beautiful white cotton ruffled short and blouse set – think aprés tennis on the deck chair followed by afternoon tea.

LOOK SIX & SEVEN:
Never worry about misplacing your sunnies with these unique Isu Collection beaded sunglass strands that make the perfect accessory (and also ideal for opticals). Layer up with multi-colour and get on your game for optimal options: this Gucci baseball jersey-inspired dress looks great on it’s own as shown on the runway with knee high socks and Mary Janes. Or be agile like I’ve styled it here, and take the look down a notch with torn and washed-out denim jeans. Either way, you can’t lose.
