These Oversized Varsity Bomber Jackets Are *The Moment* For Game Day

If you’re a big football fan like myself, then you are probably all hands on deck when it comes to your game day style. Lately, a lot of celebs, like Taylor Swift and Alix Earle, have been seen rocking their fashionable outfits at football games. And one of the biggest trends I’ve been seeing is those oversized, vintage-inspired varsity jackets. It’s giving high school game day, in the best way.

Game day outfits are one of the best things about the football season, because it gives us the time to look our best while also having fun in the process. From jerseys to sweatshirts, game day outfits are perfect for any style out there. However, vintage-inspired bomber jackets (or varsity jackets) have been in the limelight for a hot minute. (If you have seen Alix Earle’s TikTok where she is wearing that amazing vintage Dolphins bomber jacket, then you know what I’m talking about.) Varsity-inspired bomber jackets are the way to go for games, specifically for those who love the fall season. While the bomber jackets that the celebs have in their closet can cost you a pretty penny (I’m talking a couple hundred dollars, here), there are a ton of stylish, high-quality jackets that you can get for a fraction of the price. So, without further ado, here are five bomber jackets that you can purchase and still live out your NFL era.
