Varsity jackets have been a bit of a sleeper trend—suddenly we're seeing them on everyone not affiliated with a championship-winning sports team. We like the trend because it's fresh, super versatile, and not totally overdone. You can dress a varsity jacket down for a casual day running errands, or funk it up by putting it over a dress or skirt. Happily, there are plenty of designer varsity jackets for spring. Whether you fancy yourself more of a team captain or more of the leader of the school-skipping rebels, there's a varsity jacket just for you.
