School spirit goes luxe with chic varsity jacket

If you’re looking to ward off the autumn chill with a trend-conscious topper, but find the current fad for leather moto jackets not quite right, consider this alternative: a varsity jacket. Like its collegiate predecessor, today’s styles — spotted on trendsetters from Rhianna to Lena Dunham — sport a wool bodice and leather sleeves, but its silhouette is simplified, shrunken, and slim-fitting. In Boston’s urban academic environment, the look, which works layered over tailored or more feminine pieces, makes us want to cheer. “Gabi” varsity jacket, $398 at Club Monaco, The Shops at the Prudential Center, 800 Boylston St., Boston, 617-262-2658, www.clubmonaco.com
