This fall it is time to get revved up and invest in a leather motorcycle jacket. They are an easy and versatile way to wear the popular “tough luxe” and “lots of leather” trends seen on the runways. A beautiful made, buttery-soft leather motorcycle jacket will be an investment piece that you can wear year after year. Wear it this fall over a ruffly chiffon blouse paired with wide-leg trousers and high-heel booties for a sophisticated daytime work look and then throw it on with a loose, semi-sheer Alexander Wang tee or tank and your favorite pair of jeans (skinny, boyfriend or bootcut) for a casual hip weekend look. They also will look great worn now (before it gets too cold) and this spring with dainty, floral dresses. Buy one that is fitted and has an interesting cut or style without too many details, allow the rest of your outfit and accessories to style it up. Wear it with the sleeves pushed up and let your longer layers peek out. Check out the great selection of leather jackets at www.shopbop.com and www.neimanmarcus.com.
