How To Wear A Varsity Jacket--Even If You've Never Played A Sport In Your Life

You don’t have to be a top athletic to wear this spring’s best sports-inspired trend: the varsity jacket. Although the trend might seem intimating (particularly if you have painful memories of jocks shoving you into lockers), it’s actually extremely easy to style. You can either embrace the tomboy aesthetic or offset it with super feminine pieces. Check out our styling tips below and click through the slideshow to find your new favorite spring jacket.

Keep it simple: Layering is usually the trick to being a street style star, but in this case, tread carefully. Wearing lots of layers can make your varsity jacket seem bulky. To avoid looking like an actual member of the wrestling team, stick to a sleek, simple silhouette. There’s no need for a ton of accessoires–the jacket does all the work for you. All you need to do is wear the jacket with a t-shirt and your favorite skinny jeans. Throw on a pair of wedge sneakers and you’ll look effortlessly cool.

Top it off: Not sure how to wear that snapback you bought a few weeks ago? This is the perfect time to try it out. You might think pairing your varsity jacket with a baseball cap might be too much, but there are other ways to off set the super-sporty look. Try wearing your hair down with a pair dangly earrings. A preppy oxford button-down and a statement necklace can also pull the look together. Or you can just screw it and go full tomboy  (à la Cara Delevingne) and rock the jacket with a beanie.

Wear feminine pieces: If you can’t decide between being a tomboy or a girly-girl, pair your varsity jacket with a lace dress or floral shirt. Strappy sandals can completely dress up this look. But stay away from bows and knee-length skirts unless you want to look an an extra from Grease.

Make it modern: Throw what you know about traditional varsity jackets out the window. You don’t need to stick with your school colors or team logos. These jackets can be oversized or cropped and fitted. Opt for a classic style go for a floral pattern and try out as many or as few embellishments as you want.

Want more cool spring trends? Then shop half-frame sunglassesjean skirts and bralette tops.
