Say Hello To The New (Much Sweeter) Varsity Jacket

So what if you weren’t popular in high school? This editor was more of a drama geek than homecoming king, for one, and I'm here to tell you we can all skyrocket to coolness this season with a little help from the new varsity jacket. No longer reserved for the teenage elite (oh, and certain street-style stars clamoring around Lincoln Center), the retro staple's been re-imagined in soft silks with unexpected girly embellishments. This dressed-up take on the traditionally casual piece means you can rock it at brunch, work, and everywhere in between.
So, to help you find the bomber that fits your signature, we’ve culled a bevy of totally grown-up styles that'll usher you into the in crowd right this very second. From brocade embroidery to tropical neoprene, each and every topper ahead is quite frankly 'da bomb.
