The leather jacket is proving to be the most stylish, versatile solution to staying warm this season. Motorcycle and bomber versions are showing up all over the red carpet these days, dressed up and dressed down. Seriously, with the exception of bath time and bedtime, there is no real reason to take your little leather jacket off!
Nicole Richie paired her cropped jacket over a floral maxi dress at the Dsquared2 and W Event in Los Angeles. She proves how easy it is to toughen up a girly dress with a little leather. And, what an easy way to transition your favorite summer dresses into fall and winter.
Cassie topped what could have been a rather boring ensemble with a fitted black motorcycle jacket at the opening of Lucky Strike Bowling Lanes in New York. She keeps the warmth, but leaves behind the bulk most coats bring.
