#1 THE MOTORCYCLE JACKET
Whether it’s real leather or faux, the biker jacket has crossed the line from rocker rebel to runaway romantic and gives feminine dresses, soft skirts, and ruffled blouses a subtle edge. Throw it over your favorite dresses, including matte jersey empires and wraps, tailored sheaths, and draped or ruched styles.

Guess “Jade” faux leather front zip moto jacket ($128, guess.com) Best features:  knit sides for stretchy fit and pewter studs.

  1. LOVE the blazer trend this season, and a fab Leather will add a rocker look to any outfit. Also the military jacket is huge this season, perfect splash of the “it” trend for the cold weather.
