Leather is Clever

Leather jackets are the ultimate in fall cool—they’re edgy, sharp and a little bit rock  n’ roll. I love how last season’s trend of jackets with lots of softer feminine touches has carried over into this year. Throw a leather (or faux leather) jacket over even the simplest outfit like jeans and a tee shirt, to instantly make a statement.

  1. Maybe you haven’t just hopped off your hog, but you can look like you did as blue leather gives this biker look a fashionable makeover with the Leather Strap Biker Jacket from Topshop.
  2. Cognac is officially the new brown, and when mixed with a stand collar and zippers galore--a la the Bagatelle Washed Leather Jacket at Neiman Marcus—it helps forge the perfect union of classic cut and vintage style.
  3. Girly meets tough in this Alfani Faux Leather Jacket. Ruffles and slight tapering make this style ultra feminine.
  4. Asos’ Oasis Victoriana Military Leather Jacket  is neutral enough to blend with any color palette in your wardrobe, and gives the season’s military trend a slight twist—a concealed zipper under a plate style front (so you get the double-breasted look of a military jacket without actually having to fasten all the buttons), and feminine pleating detail in back.
