Biker Chic

Balenciaga Leather Biker Jacket, £1,275.00 at Brownsfashion.com (also available in dark brown)

I spent all spring and summer in floaty, feminine frocks, but this fall and winter, I plan on toughening up my look somewhat by investing in a chic, edgy motorcycle jacket (either in traditional leather or in classy wool or cashmere). I love the versatility of this look: over skinny jeans for a Downtown look or over a lace dress or skirt for a contrasting hard/soft look. Fall fashion is all about severe, structurally rigid looks, and I can't wait to pair my biker chic look with a statement necklace from Lanvin or Vera Wang.

Some additional choices:
1. Vince Drape Front Leather Jacket, $740 at Saks: The complicated collar is tres chic:
2. Juicy Couture Leather Jacket, $748 at Saks: A slightly more feminine version of the motorcycle jacket, this topper still maintains a hard edge:
