It may be a little toasty outside to be thinking about your next jacket purchase, but trust us, you'll want to jump on this trend now, not later. Already, we've seen a major uptick in street style stars and It models wearing fall's number one piece: the varsity jacket. While we don't think the bomber styles that dominated earlier this year will be going anywhere just yet, this sporty silhouette with a throwback flair is looking to be a major must-have for the coming months.
To prove it, we rounded up a handful of photos that prove there are plenty of ways to wear the athleisure staple. Whether it's over a silky slip dress or paired with off-duty track pants, these jackets are a home run no matter what you choose to wear them with. From Gigi Hadid to Cara Delevingne, take a peek at how your style icons are wearing them now, and shop our favorites so you can get on the trend ahead of everyone else.
