Sporty meets girly in this trend that is taking over runways from Milan to New York
When supermodel Kate Moss stepped out last week in her customised Coach varsity jacket, we knew the sporty look was here to stay. Fashion weeks have proved it is the trend du jour, with brands like Gucci, Tommy Hilfiger and Zara highlighting it in their collections. Our pick of varsity-themed jackets, T-shirts, skirts and more to help you look your athletic best.
