It's time to get in that team spirit!

While football games, first period and those legendary lunch ladies may be a thing of the past (well for most of us anyway), Hollywood is heading back to the classroom—at least when it comes to their style.

We've spotted some of the most fashionable celebs rocking sporty varsity jackets this season—and we're obsessed! Most recently, Girls' star Lena Dunham in this cool blue nylon stunner while out and about in New York City and Jennifer Hudson on a shoot in a metallic version. Other fans? Rihanna, Hillary Duff and Cara Delevingne.

Our verdict? No matter the style, this cool layering piece adds a fresh element to all of these A-lister's casual looks. 

Want to incorporate this trend into your casual wardrobe, but worried you'll look like a high school jock? Don't despair. It's easy to rock the old school varsity jacket trend—as long as you follow these simple rules.

  1. Embrace your feminine side. Avoid looking masculine by donning your most feminine garb with a varsity jacket. Just look at Lena! She instantly femmed up her entire look with her floral dress.
  2. Go for fitted. Be mindful of the jacket's fit. Something too large will drown you, and look like you're wearing your old boyfriend's duds. Take a cue from Cara by finding a style that's slimmer through the body with shorter-length sleeves.
