Truth is, secretly I really wanted to be a superhero. I wanted the full-on powers, the read-your-mind secret weapon, the travel back in time shtick, you know… stuff like that. I figured since I have my superhero Deadpool varsity jacket the rest would be a piece of cake.
Well… it turns out the only superpower I have is being lazy af. Which is great tbh, cause I couldn’t be bothered with saving the world and stuff like that. I am also funny, which is probably the only thing Deadpool and I have in common.
Anyway, wearing my new Deadpool jacket from Warrior Jackets, I ended up looking more like a College cheerleader (#eyeroll) rather than a superhero, but I guess that’s fine too, and only comes to show us this jacket’s versatility. #IKnowRight
How to wear a superhero varsity jacket IRL?
The key is to pick a jacket that’s not too costume-like, which looks very versatile, and can translate easily to any outfit you love to wear.
Go for boyfriend fit rather that too tight.
Last but not least pick good quality fabrics. Eventually it has to look expensive, and have a good feel to it, to sort of counter-balance its cartoon-inspired style.
Have fun with it, and wear it as a statement piece, or just play it by ear and throw it over whatever outfit you’re wearing one day. Replace your leather jacket with a varsity style one, for example.
If all else fails, wear all black and top it off with a superhero inspired jacket.
Why buy a superhero varsity jacket?
The Q has been on my mind for a while trust me, but it’s easy. You love a movie character so much, or end up crushing over their outfit that you feel like a 10 year who wants to dress like his idol. It sounds stupid but really it’s okay. And quite possible sans looking like a clown. Hello Deadpool jacket, or Ryan Gossling’s Drive jacket.
At the end of the day we’re all kids trying to have fun and enjoy fashion.
Deadpool varsity jacket: GET THE LOOK
It’s no secret I’ve come to love varsity jackets ever since I started my collab with USA brand – Warrior Jackets. The Deadpool jacket I’m wearing is a perfect fit (size S), cause it looks slightly boyfriend cut, but not oversized. I love its colour combo and how it looks more like a College Letterman/Varsity jacket and less like a superhero attire.
Its fabric is really soft and good quality, it keeps you really warm so FYI it’s perfect for autumn and chilly spring days. The shipping was super fast, I got it in a few days which is fantastic given the USA to Europe not-too-fast-shipping.
The price is great, and the design is perfect. It’s effortless, cool and classic, with a bit of college boyfriend vibe to it.
