Runway Inspiration: Letterman Jackets

One of the trends that made its way onto the runways this Fall was the use of college-inspired letterman's jackets and athletic jackets to keep things casual and structured as the temperatures dropped. I think it's hard to pull off the look without looking too juvenile and too casual--I automatically think jeans, tees and converse. So how to pull off the look? I say opt for a version with some leather or updated textures to make the silhouette new. If you're going to wear yours, wear it out at night instead of casual during the day. Pair it with tailored black paints and pointy black heels with maybe a decorative ankle strap for effect. The sleeker the the rest of your look the better.
