Tall gals should be conscious of finding leather jackets that can accommodate their long torsos and arms. Ashlee Simpson’s blazer perfectly compliments her dress. It’s worth spending some extra time in the dressing room to ensure that you can stretch and move around in that biker jacket, and that the sleeves don’t stop mid-arm. Length-wise, tall body types are well-suited for knee-skimming hems. If you’re on the boyish side, pair a leather pencil skirt with a feminine blouse, or look for embellishments like pleating to add the illusion of curves.

The classic pencil skirt gets a rock ‘n’ roll update with this pleated-detail number. Opt for a fitted but not tight look and balance it out with tasteful separates (a cashmere sweater or white button-down) to keep it classy. Robert Rodriguez Biker lambskin leather skirt ($246.90, nordstrom.com)
