While my feminist leanings leave me somewhat ashamed to admit it, my personal favorite letterman sweater look is the borrowed from the boys one. Like the co-ed who below who appears to have kept warm by slipping her boyfriend's sweater over her dress or skirt and blouse.
I may be more then a decade and a half beyond my school years but that didn't stop my collegiate yearnings for a vintage letterman sweater of my own. Luckily, I found my perfect sweater match on Etsy thanks to the wonderful seller Dust and Daze. While my sweater isn't the borrowed from the boys look I originally sought, it apparently belonged to a sporty young lady named Annelise, it is more than made up for by its pristine condition and vintage beauty. Seriously this sweater looks like it was made yesterday despite being over 50 years old. It has all the letterman sweater essentials a big fuzzy letter, classic red stripes, warm thick wool, and plenty of athletic pins, and during Dust and Daze's summer sale it was a steal.
I wore it with my Freddie's of Pinewood Jeans, a red beret, and my tweed clad sweet heart, Weasley, at my side.
Now I'm really not sure why but this outfit got the comment? compliment?, it was said with a smile and thumbs up, that I looked like a cartoon character. Perhaps this guy:
