Current Obsession: J. Crew Surf Varsity Jacket(Courtesy: J. Crew Surf Varsity Jacket, $118, at J. Crew)If you never got to wear the quarterback's letterman jacket in high school, here's your chance: J. Crew is offering up a stylish re-do with its sleek version. While this particular sporty silhouette is popping up everywhere, we're especially loving this style with its clean baseball-inspired lines and monochromatic colors. Let us count the reasons why:

1. It's trendy. Boyfriend-style fashion is having a moment. If you're new to menswear-inspired bombers, this basic jacket is straightforward and therefore easy to pair with a number of different outfits.

2. It's transitional.
Suited for any season, this outerwear option offers structure (thanks to its bonded jersey fabric) yet is surprisingly lightweight, perfect for enjoying in the summer or layering in the winter.

3. It gives your go-to blazer a break. Although essential to your working wardrobe, there's only so many ways you can wear a blazer before exhausting the option. The bomber's fashion-forward upgrade ensures it's suited for work and play. 

4. It's still sporty. Whether you're competitively inclined or less than athletic, there are inevitable sports-fueled events we can't avoid. This stylish upgrade guarantees you'll look polished when you're wearing (or feigning) your game face.

5. It's a celeb-favorite. Look to some of our favorite stars for outfit inspiration.
