Instagram’s latest trend will have you flashing back to high school
I was That Bitch
by Una Dabiero
Like most of us, I would prefer to leave my High School days behind me. When you're in like, 10th grade, everything is awkward. You think everyone hates you and your bras never fit and you're still trying to figure out how to make your crush love you. You know, without giving him a blow job, like Rachel did on the bus that one time.
But apparently, one High School clothing trend wasn't awkward. Letterman jackets are the latest Instagram trend, and they're super easy to style.
Maybe it's Riverdale, maybe it's the Olympics, or maybe it's the fact that we're all looking forward to March Madness, but these jackets are on every influencer right now.
One of the best things about the style is how easily it can be paired with athletileisure for a sporty look, or dressed up with a nice pant and pair of heels. And don't worry — not all of them have patches.
Classic letterman jackets with patches, like the one Victoria's Secret model Daniela Braga is wearing below, are a bold tribute to the real thing
Here's some bold patches for $20.
Dark-colored versions of these classic jackets are especially edgy when mixed with leather and other dark accessories
Have literally worn this jacket with almost everything.

Here's one in black for only $20 at H&M
Or one from Urban for $150.
But pastels are just as easy to pair with any outfit for an on-trend look
Here's a ~millenial~ pink jacket that's only $14.
If you're feeling a little too tame for this trend at full-force, bombers with striped lining achieve the look without the overstated patches or big sleeves
Nordstrom has a Levi's lookalike for only $88.
Or you can get it in black from GAP for $168.
And a metallic bomber gives the look a little more edge than a fleece option
We like this shiny bomber from Forever 21 that's only $20.
I may have hated High School, but I really wish I kept my Varsity jacket. Oh, and in case you're wondering, I didn't get it for some sexy sport like Cheerleading or Women's lax. I got it for choir. Now you know why I hated High School.
It is time to rise up against The Blue Eyes
Join me, my brothers and sisters

This is not a rant about Eurocentric beauty standards. It's not taking a stand against a particular facial ideal or pushing back against unrealistic expectations. This story is, like all things in this world, about me. ;-)Ask any person with light eyes what color they are. No, physically stand up and ask someone around you.…
But when will we get Tesla thongs?
Give it to us, bitch @elonmusk
by Amanda Ross
When he's not busy crying about how billionaire is a slur, bedding Grimes, or looking like Dwight Schrute when he cut the face off a CPR dummy and placed it over his own, Elon Musk is innovating. He's building cars no one drives, coming up with elaborate schemes to rescue exactly zero (0) Thai soccer…
Flat Tummy isn’t the worst for pushing diet products — it’s the worst for being so good at it
How the brand is making dieting trendy
by Veronica Walsingham
Diet brand Flat Tummy has always attracted the ire of the Internet, but backlash reached fever pitch this summer when the company unveiled a massive billboard in Times Square. And for good reason: The billboard in question is part of a new ad campaign for appetite suppressant lollipops, roundly criticized for using reality and YouTube…
