Even if you never played a sport in high school or college, there’s something oddly comforting about a letterman sweater. Together, the bold standout letter and knit collide into a cozy fall look. Even if you’re rocking a simple long-sleeved top and not the full-on jacket, there’s just something special about it. To prove our point, Emma Roberts’ cheerleader sweater is giving us major team spirit with a twist of nostalgia, thanks to its vintage-inspired look.

With a baby pink body and a red “R” on the chest (for designer Rachel Antonoff), this is the preppy chic aesthetic we didn’t know we were missing.

High school was a strange time for many of us. We weren’t quite adults, though we thought we were. But one thing that’s remained consistent since then? Our love of throwback pieces.

Emma’s top reminds us that we can always channel our inner teenager, minus all the excessive hormones and drama, with our favorite lettered piece.

While Roberts pairs hers with green khakis and brown Isabel Marant loafers, you could just as easily go for it with a tartan skirt and some high socks. Or, pair your varsity top with some spandex leggings and a high pony to channel your inner Grease girl. This would even look great with jeans and sneakers, which means it’s perfect for those days when you want to be lazy but still feel cute.

Hello to our new secret weapon for fall.
