The varsity-style cricket jumper is officially back on the fashion map, which means you can finally live out your ‘queen of the country club’ fantasy and you have Alessandro Michele to thank for that. The Italian designer has been ‘prepping it up’ since his appointment as Creative Director at Gucci back in 2015 and this iconic style has featured in all of his collections since. Michele’s more is more approach to design has definitely been noted across the fashion community, and as we transition into the new season you’ll start seeing it everywhere. More ruffles, more sparkles, more bows, more colour, more more.
The varsity sweater fits perfectly into this maximalist, even decadent movement because it’s flashy, it’s emblematic and it’s versatile (there’s that word again). It’s bold enough as is when worn with mom jeans; or you can go the extra ‘Michele mile’ and pair it with a patterned, pleated skirt and top it off with silver platforms.
