Even if you weren’t much for school spirit back in your high school days, the latest stylish upgrades on the classic varsity jacket may inspire you to break out a pair of pom-pons! These aren’t the typical nylon, elbow-patched zip-ups that all the jocks and their cheerleader girlfriends were seen sporting around campus. Add updated on-trend details along with a slight touch of irony and whimsy, and lose the hall pass, and you’ve got yourself a modern fall staple that’s perfect for throwing on over anything from dresses to jeans and beyond. Polka dots add an undeniable feminine touch to the traditionally boyish silhouette of this Forever 21 jacket, while this Washborne denim jacket from Free People incorporates jock-inspired details to make a sweet fall take on the American classic. Love fall’s two-toned jacket trend? This Madewell Stadium Jacket fits right in with its leather sleeves and warm wool shell. No matter which take on the trend suits your fancy, these cozy-yet-cool jackets are definitely worth cheering about.
