Celebrities wearing sporty varsity jackets

While recess, that dreaded first period and pep rallies are memories of the past, Hollywood's brightest stars are headed back to high school. Well, not literally — but at least when it comes to their sporty-chic style.

That's right. Rihanna, Georgia May Jagger, Kelly Osbourne and Cara Delevingne have all topped off their glam looks recently with a team spirit-ready varsity jacket.

Want to test out this super-hot trend, but not sure how? Don't despair. Here's how to wear the celeb favorite look for work and play.

For work

Looking for a cool, new casual Friday go-to? Layer on a neutral varsity jacket with a hint of girly detailing. But to ensure your outfit is office-appropriate, choose a fitted style. Something baggy will appear unprofessional and sloppy. Try this pretty femme style from Obey with dark skinny jeans, sky-high stilettos and a simple blouse for a totally cute, yet sophisticated look.
