Chic For Cheap: Varsity Jacket

Posted -

Unless you live under a rock, I'm sure you know who Selena Gomez is. This week, she is our inspiration for a fun take on the varsity sports jacket. This trend is happening everywhere; amongst celebs, online bloggers, on campus, and even abroad. 

With the awkward weather continuing, where we don’t know if it’s going to be 60 degrees and sunny or 35 and grey, this fun boyish trend is v handy. Throw on the sundress and pair it with your varsity jacket to remain comfortable in whatever temperature the day throws at you. Here’s Selena’s take on it:
