In 2011 leather jackets aren't just plain black. Try one in any color, like two-toned, silver, or camel/khaki. Look for a jacket with zippers, quilting, or studs.
I personally think that a leather jacket should be a staple in every woman's closet; it takes a very simple outfit to a whole new level! If you're ever in a rush and have to just throw something on, put on your best skinny jeans, a leather jacket, a t-shirt, and some heels for an easy, modern look.
