Not Your Boyfriend's

Menswear for women is a popular trend this fall, so it's a no brainer that the ultimate man's jacket is making a huge comeback: the varsity jacket... only this one is a chic, more fitted version than your [ex]boyfriend's letterman jacket you wanted to wear after the football game. I purchased this one at Charlotte Russe a few months ago [you know I can't say no to faux leather sleeves & it was on sale for $15!] but I've included seven other cute options below. I'd suggest sizing down a bit to avoid the jacket looking too bulky. I also love this varsity cardigan sweater from Target.
I wanted to balance out the masculinity of the jacket and make it a little tomboy-chic so I added a statement necklace and metallic pumps. This jacket is also perfect for a day of tailgating or Sunday Funday while cheering on your favorite team! Or if you're like me, just an excuse to wear cute sports gear and meet your friends at the bar. I cheered for basketball for two years, and football for three. Couldn't tell you a thing about either...

  2. Love the sporty yet chic aspects of this look. I have been meaning to get my hands on a pair of silvery pumps for work!

  4. I love this look, esp the jacket! And I'm ashamed you know nothing about sports... sad life. :)
