Why: With decidedly feminine, sugary frocks in style this season, a girl needs a little edge in her wardrobe. And a leather jacket, in addition to preventing a seasonal chill from freezing you out of your favorite fashions, will spice up this season's sweetest dresses.
Let's be clear, though. Dad's old bomber jacket may interfere with the lines of your pretty new dress and is probably too casual, so we recommend Madison Marcus's cropped leather jacket, which works perfectly with everything from the form-fitting to trapeze styles. It can also be successfully styled with a pair of men's style slouchy slacks or skinny jeans and heels. Versatile and effortlessly chic, celebutante Paris Hilton sported it on the red carpet. And while we may not always agree with Miss Hilton's fashion decisions, purchasing this hot jacket definitely gets our seal of approval.
