Leather jackets are known for their day jobs: as a cool coat alternative that goes with everything from skinny jeans to black pants. They are rarely seen on red carpets, or over pink party dresses. Or so we thought. Blake Lively paired hers with a pink ruffled dress, black tights and booties – and we love it. Try the look here:
Start with a great fold-over leather jacket like this under-$130 GUESS Knit Inset Pleather Jacket ($128). It will do double duty as a daytime piece (over gray t-shirts and dark skinny jeans) and your new favorite nighttime staple (over party dresses and skirts).
This Gabriella Rocha Pioos Pink Dress ($67, down from $79), which nails Blake’s look and is perfect for parties and special occasions, is also marked down. Cha-ching.
Tights with texture – like these Commando Ribbed Tights ($34) – are huge this year. Look for a pair with a rib, or a subtle pattern like houndstooth, this season.
A black bootie with a sexy front dip like this Ash Isa High Heel Booties ($195) is perfect for pairing with tights and dresses for a sexy nighttime look.
