My favorite thing about new seasons? New trends! Even though the summer is sadly coming to a close, I am so excited for fall trends! I loved summer 2011 trends, but I’m so over them…let’s start shopping the Fall 2011 runways!
One of the hottest trends of the Fall 2011 sportswear runways was varsity jackets. Cut more femininely than the one the hunky quarterback from high school wore, but with all the same charm. Runway designers like Rag & Bone, 3.1 Phillip Lim (pictured), and even Givenchy were displaying their take on the sporty style.
Pair your boxy jacket with feminine pieces like these pink pants from Phillip Lim or with lush jewel tones (another fall runway favorite). This comfortable and preppy style works on any body type and you can mix in up with different fabrics and styles.
Designers have been showing these collegiate jackets in everything from leather to houndstooth. Check out Teen Vogue’s slideshow of their favorite funky looks for inspiration.
And with any trend, of course your favorite Cheap Chica stores have their version. Everyone from ASOS to Forever 21 is featuring a spin on this runway favorite for a fraction of the cost.
I adore this Tommy Girl jacket for just $79, but scroll our picks below to find your fall favorite!
