One-Minute Makeover Tip: Do the Varsity Thing With a Polished Twist

Oct 22 2012 - 11:56am

The sporty vibe first got its stylish overhaul via Isabel Marant [1]'s pumped-up kicks and Rag & Bone's slick tuxedo-meets-racer stripe trousers. Now, it's more than a little evident that the athletic aesthetic has taken a turn for the outright academic. Welcome to the "new school" of sporty, where classic letterman jackets get the polished treatment, baseball caps aren't just for playing ball (and bad hair days), and preppy argyle prints prove perfect for low-key crewneck sweatshirts.

But don't take our word for it, look to our latest crop of style setters for easy OMM (that's code for one-minute makeover, of course) inspiration. The thing is, you don't have to invest in a new set of clothes to achieve a similar brand of too-cool-for-school. In fact, we think it's worth a little journey to the back of your closet — and into your high school styling archives — to nail this look. Interest piqued? Keep reading for our 60-second makeover tips, and perhaps some extra credit, too.
