What: Patent Leather Biker Jacket
Who: Spotted on Mega-Diva Beyonce Knowles at the American Music Awards
Why: The patent leather trend is running rampant these days, so rev your engines and climb onboard with one of these dangerously rousing jackets. And don't forget–you don't need a star's budget to afford this motorcycle chic trend.
1. The Avita jacket by Via Spiga ($299) is a less extreme alternative to Beyonce’s out-there outerwear. Its zipperfront keeps a hint of the biker appeal without any zany bells and whistles.
2. The Charles Gray faux Patent jacket ($258) offers a more conservative approach to the patent frenzy. Personally, I adore the knotched collar and off-center buttons.
3. One of the best deals out there is a Guess Patent Jacket marked down from $200 to $99. This jacket is not as supershiny, but it will make you feel like a rockstar with more zippers than you can handle plus a cozy faux fur lining. So why not snatch up one of these bad boys, while the trend is still gaining mileage? Though you might be an angel at heart, who says you can't dress like a bat out of hell.
