Leave it to a Brazilian model to make a retro varsity jacket look modern. Izabel Goulart wore the cheekiest Gucci sweater to the airport this week in Rio de Janeiro, complete with sporty stripes, poufy sleeves, and a glittery panther emblazoned across the front. The bold top could have easily come across as over the top, but Goulart pulled together a very cool-girl look by pairing it with high-waisted white skinnies, some seriously on-trend espadrilles, and sophisticated cat-eye sunglasses.
Goulart’s look only further demonstrated the fact that varsity and bomber jackets have been making a major resurgence as of late. They’ve been spotted on everyone from Emma Roberts to Olivia Palermo in iterations ranging from embroidered to sateen. However, we’ve never seen a sporty knit version like the model’s, and we have to admit we like what we see. If her future outfits continue to be as distinctive as this one, we can’t wait to see what she pulls off next. She just might be our new favorite fashion icon.
