Listen, we don't want to harsh your fun summer vibes, but the cold truth is that school starts in less than a month. *does Home Alone-style scream* But hey, it's not ALL bad! Now is the time of year when you can finally jazz up that wardrobe with fun fall pieces and pair those fresh duds with an even fresher summer glow. Hot! We figured the best way to get into the swing of things is with a super cool varsity jacket to throw on over any ensemble. They're totally on-trend but also act as the perfect transitional piece from summer into winter. Let's dive right in, shall we? WE SHALL.

Forgot the old go-to varsity jackets, these bad boys will instantly make you the coolest girl in school with their fierce statement-making patterns. Personally, we love the silk galaxy print number from Tideland ($75) and the F/W 2012 Jeremy Scott x adidas leopard zip-up that will hit stores later this summer. WERK!
COOL AND CLASSIC

If you like sticking to tradition (and there's nothing wrong with that!), we love these classic pieces that are timeless wardrobe staples. The black and white BDG knit jacket ($69) will match literally everything in your closet, while the bright emerald green Forever 21 ($23) number adds a nice pop of color to any ensemble.
THE BOLDEST AND BRIGHTEST

Go big or go home! Make your mark in the hallway with THE boldest and brightest varsity jackets on the market. This first coat is reversible (!!!) and has three different types of floral patterns on each side. Yep, you can thank House of Billiam ($349) for making this perfect little number. We also like this non-traditional Coco && Breezy ($350) varsity jacket featuring paisley print with leather toggles on the front. AMAZE!
SIMPLE WITH A TRENDY TWIST

If you want a bit of both worlds (classic and trendy), these two jackets have just a touch of fun without going over the top. Joyrich ($143) makes a killer red and white piece with an "LA" bones insignia on the front, and currently The Outnet is carrying a military-inspired wool See by Chloe ($279) jacket that's on suppperr sale. Hurry and snatch it up while it still lasts! For even more back-to-school looks, be sure to check out our photo gallery below.
