There are some fashions you put on that just make you feel cool: fabulous sunglasses, form-fitting jeans, black nail polish, an incognito trench, and killer heels. But the ultimate cool item spotted during these transitional Fall-to-Winter days has got to be the leather motorcycle jacket. As Keira Knightley and Lindsay Lohan have proven, this can be a pretty fierce cover-up. Our favorite way to wear these updated styles is over a feminine dress, the way the too-cool-for-school models have sported it. There are also more color options out there; browns and greens are a muted alternative to classic black. Check out some of my favorite finds at both designer and non-designer prices.
