This Fall It's All About Leather Jackets!

The September issue of StyleWatch reveals how to achieve this fall’s fierce-but-ladylike look with the “in” piece of the season — a short leather jacket! It’s the perfect way of mixing uptown chic with downtown edge. Claire Danes is spot-on with her unlikely combo — a Prada chocolate bomber adds just the right dose of tough-girl attitude to her sweet dress and feminine heels. Want an easy way to add a twist — and a touch of rugged toughness — to a white tee and jeans? Try a cropped version like Katherine McPhee’s YaYa Aflalo jacket. Try a few of our favorites:

a.n.a. Leather peplum jacket, $100 at jcpenney.com

Luxe leather jacket, $90 at metrostyle.com

Banana Republic trenchlet, $328 at banarepublic.com

Gap Product Red white leather jacket, $150 at gap.com

Also check out Wilsons Leather at wilsonsleather.com — it’s a place to find a variety of great, affordable options!
