Leather jackets are not just for the sassy biker gals, but for all who like to keep warm in style. Leather is a great way to look pulled together, slim and rockin’ all in one. Whether you are flaunting leather gloves or a seductive black leather jacket, you won't be feeling frumpy... unlike most winter clothes. So, put out the vibe in some leather gear. Whether you cruise on a bike or like to keep the wind away from your face, leather jackets are the ultimate protection with an extremely sexy attitude.

My first pick is a cropped leather jacket. This may not be the warmest leather jacket around, but its definitely a cute one. The layered feather design at the shoulders and back give it a unique spark along with the laced up back detail. I think it would be a hot combo with some tight jeans.

If you just want something Angelina Jolie would wear with some pointy toe boots, then grab this Black Rivet Vintage Lamb Cutaway Asymmetrical Jacket. It’s feminine and fierce at the same time. The subtle variations of its black coat give it a desirable shine that takes it from boring black to uber sexy.

My ultimate obsession for this season is the Tucker Leather Jacket from BCBG. Wow, this jacket is stunning. It is so classy, I just want to live in it. I love the gravel color combined with the black leather. The different textures really make this jacket pop and differentiate it from the rest. Nevertheless, the ruffle detail and buckle closures on both the waist and wrists make me swoon for this jacket. The Mandarin collar also gives it a modern, sleek look. I adore the box pleat back and overall, love and love it.

If you want to spice up an old plain leather jacket, then try wrapping this single flower belt around it. I think it is such a cute accent piece to complete a look. This belt can also be used later on for spring over a brighter dress. It’s always wise to have fun accent pieces around to get creative with when on a weekend getaway when choices are limited and accessories end up defining your outfit. Go ahead and start leather-fying your wardrobe.
