It doesn't matter if your style veers more Harley Viera Newton than Harley Davidson, a leather jacket is one of those fashion pieces that works in any girl's wardrobe. The moto jacket has that rare ability to make things you wear look more structured and more effortless, which is kind of a magical thing when you're already 10 minutes late and only half-dressed. Plus, it can dress down a fancy frock and make a T-shirt feel more elegant. And — did we mention? — it's warm but breathable, trendy but timeless, and will probably last you decades (if you buy the right one). Since leather coats literally go with everything, the hardest part is figuring out how you'll wear one today. So, if you need a bit of guidance, click through to see five recent examples of how it's done really, really right.
