They said 2016 is all about oversized jackets and new sartorial crushes, aka ‘can we please try a little harder than the already too-worn leather jacket?! Thank you.’ My prayers were answered – a jacket that has it all, but it’s not leather – has arrived.

Actually it’s got superpowers, and tons of swag, and versatility, and I can sometimes wear it to the gym, and sometimes to work, and sometimes for meetings when I pair it with uber posh outfits. It’s sporty and casual, with a retro-college reminiscence that gives it incredible sophistication when I pair it with smarter outfits.

My Captain America Varsity Jacket is officially my fave item in the world, and to be honest with you it’s my favourite jacket so far. I love that it’s slightly oversized, I got it in size M, which means two things.

(1) It makes me look like those super cool kids/bloggers/can’t-be-bothered-rich-babes-who-love-the-hobo-look in an instant, especially when I wear it with mom jeans and sneakers or brogues, bold lips, and messy hair. It is literally the easiest look in the world. Being oversized makes it perfect for the fashion-editor-swag-look: wearing it around your shoulders. Being an oversized varsity jacket it makes me feel like a college kid. Again.

(2) Oversized means it fits the boys, so when my husband tried it on and it fit him (though it’s a bit too fitted for him, but it works), he was like ‘Okay, this is officially mine, I’m stealing it.’ He loves it. It is a men’s jacket which makes it so much better for the girls. The sartorial irony, I know.

We, of course decided to share it.

Why is Captain America the perfect jacket? Not only it ticks the trend boxes of 2016 (oversized, menswear inspired, sporty-athleisure), but it really has superpowers.

Fashion superpowers.

No matter what you have on, no matter the #OOTD, the moment you put this oversized varsity jacket on your back, or just let it chic’ly hang off your shoulders, you look like you got swag and you mean business. You know your shit.

It’s sophisticated, and it has a retro sort of college traditional vibe to it that makes it effortlessly cool. The colour is brilliant: dark blue with white and red stripes for that sporty casual vibe. And it has the superhero badge. Shut the front door.

Quality wise it’s insane: it’s soft, it keeps you warm, you don’t sweat in it, it’s not bulky which is great when you do oversized, so it follows you body-line naturally. Price wise it’s a bargain, and the shipping is super fast.

Of course Captain America might not be your #1 hero, and that’s fine, cause the shop – Celebsclothing – has all the superheroes jackets. It is the most popular movie clothing store. So just make sure you check them out here and find your own. I’m telling you they are fabulous. The perfect statement-traditional mix in jackets.

I wore my oversized varsity jacket with jeans + cropped top + velcro sneakers + bold lips + bling cause that’s like the most comfortable style for me, and that was my mood that day. But Captain America looks great with anything from athleisure outfits to heels and smart attire. Trust me, it’s all road-tested.

    I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.

    My name is Tom Peacock from USA, I want to say thank you to Dr Emu for the good thing he has done for me, Though am not sure if this is the best forum to show my joy and happiness for what he has done for me but i can’t hide my happiness and my joy so i have to share it with people, my marriage got crashed about two years ago and i tried all i could within my power but to no avail. I saw a post and testimonial about the good things Dr Emu has been doing so I decided to give it a try. though he is always a busy man but when he responded back to my email, he gave me 48 hours for my marriage to be restored really just like he said my marriage was restored since then I am happy and i am living happily i am so grateful to Dr Emu you can always email him here: {emutemple@gmail.com} or WhatsApp: {+2347012841542}

    My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough.

    I’m not sure exactly why but this blog is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
