Daisybutter - UK Style and Fashion Blog: varsity sweaters, zara varsity top

This story is simple. Girl with no concept of too many clothes sees a reduced varsity sweatshirt in Zara. Girl buys. Girl avidly awaits the sweatshirt to return from laundry almost every other day.

There's something so understatedly and surprisingly chic about a boxy, boyish fit, kinda obnoxious slogans and chunky ol' stripes on the sleeves by the crook of your elbow. And it doesn't 'have' to be so reminiscent of those awkward tween years when you're still trying to find your style footing and end up in flared jeans and borderline questionable zipped up hoodies - okay, not borderline, just straight up questionable. Ah youth.

Right now, varsity sweaters are sneaking on in to all of my outfits. Weekdays? Dress it up with a leather trouser, a tailored jacket (really, really into those too) and a heel. Weekend? Roll up the hems on your favourite skinny jeans, add a Converse, slick on some red lips and Surf spray (of the Bumble and bumble variety, FYI) your hair. There.

How are you styling varsity sweatshirts? Link me up and share your preference!

  1. BONJOUR! So into stuff like this at the moment. I got a baseball jumper the other week, and yesterday I bought a t-shirt from Zara that says "cheerleader" across the front, have you seen it? I find it hilarious, because I'm clearly not a cheerleader.

    1. They're so easy to wear, even if my Dad constantly asks why I'm pretending to be even remotely sporty. Zara are doing the whole varsity thing so well at the moment, I shall have to relive my cheerleader days and have a peek!

  2. I keep looking at these types of sweaters online. I think they are brilliant for casual days paired with your fave skinnies or over a dress! Love your idea of pairing it with a blazer and heels though!

  3. Love the Bonjour on your sweatshirt -- so cute! I actually do not own a varsity sweatshirt but I wish I did! They seem so versatile and comfortable...I think I would style them with frayed boyfriend jeans and some sneakers. Oh, and a baseball cap of some sort to add to the athletic vibe...hmm perhaps a jeweled necklace to spice things up? Ahh now my mind is full of possibilities.
