Press Refresh: 3 Updated Takes on the Leather Jacket

Fall’s most-loved jacket? Anything of the leather variety. Seriously, you can wear these over a hoodie or that big-night-out dress – they’re that versatile.

Although classic black moto styles are always in, this is the season to play with color and silhouette. Need some cool-weather inspiration? Look to these three unconventional takes on autumn’s staple.


1. Go Sharper
Black is always a good idea because you can wear it with literally anything. But this number gets updated with texture, seams, and strong shoulders for a dash of the unexpected. Soften the look by adding floral skinnies and a swipe of light pink lip gloss.

2. Go Bolder
Vibrant clementine gives this edgy moto style an energetic punch. Pair it with indigo skinnies and taupe booties. Tip: Stay away from black pants to keep it from looking too Halloween-ish.

3. Go Sleeker
With a vibrant kick of green and a super-tailored fit, this blazer-meets-jacket adds panache to your office or book-club brunch ensemble. Throw it over a camisole, sweater, chambray, etc. Just remember to keep accessories minimal.
