Hello my dears! It looks like Yours’ oversized top is a big hit with you all – and I’ve just found that they are bringing in a burnt orange colour version as well, which is great! I will let you know as soon as they’re available to buy.
A big high street trend at the moment is the American preppy, high school look topped off with varsity jackets. It’s a great trend for those of you who prefer something more casual and easy to wear, and for us glamour-pusses who fancy a day off!
I first noticed the trend back in 2009 in designer Alexander Wang’s spring runway show. Everything was heavily influenced by American sports and had a huge dose of cheerleader chic, with the high street soon following suit:
Since then a stream of celebs have rocked the trend, including Leona Lewis and Rihanna. Here are my top varsity picks from Yours Clothing’s American Preppy collection!
What do you think guys? I particularly love the Grey Marl Scoop Neck Sweater, as it’s so versatile. I like things to be a bit more edgy, so I’d spruce it up with brown leather accessories for going out! And who couldn’t love Mickey Mouse? I just want to throw on some leggings and trainers and feel super comfy.
Lots of love,
