A good surplus or leather jacket is great in its own right, but the latest crop of outerwear this season is putting an unexpected twist on our old autumn standbys with mixed-media touches, like leather sleeves on a classic army jacket or twill topper. The result is a little ― okay, a lot ― cooler than the original, infusing any fall outfit, whether it’s a frilly dress or a pair of jeans, with a tough, downtown vibe. Pick up one of these 10 pieces and hit the street, but be prepared to hear “where’d you get that?” at least twice today.

Celebs may have worn it first, but we’ve been feeling leather (and leather-look) pants, shorts, and skirts in the forecast for some time now. The right piece fits seamlessly into any wardrobe; it can be the centerpiece of an outfit in color or worn with anything in black. Either way, it’s a luxurious, classic look with an unexpected edge. But let’s face it — good leather doesn’t come cheap. Hell, neither does good pleather. The quest to find the right pair of pants, or the perfect skirt, isn’t easy, so we’ve made it a little easier by compiling 10 of our best bets (of both leather and vegan pleather) under $300, with 4 options under $100. Don’t be afraid to invest in leather, because if New York Fashion Week runway trends are any indication (and duh, of course they are), the look is here to stay well through the next two seasons.
Newflash: you don’t have to ride a motorcycle to wear a motorcycle jacket! Hell, you don’t have to go anywhere near a motorcycle. Regardless of your ideal form of recreation, motorcycle jackets add a suggestion of down-for-anything edge to even your most virtuous fall look. It’s just as hip when worn as a contrasting touch to a girly dress as it is when paired with skinny jeans and a white T. The shape’s most well-known iteration is in black leather (or pleather, if you please), but we’re really feeling the equally cool, if slightly less obvious, fabric versions, in a bevy of fall-ready textures and colors. Click through for our ten picks from the softer side of the spectrum (half are under $100!), and see if you can resist picking up just one…
Think baroque, with its shadowy drama, rich colors, and exaggerated opulence, is best left in 17th century Europe? Think again: the grand, flourishing stylization is experiencing a revival, and not in the medium you would think. After appearing on fall runways from Balmain to Dolce & Gabbana, what’s old has become new again in chiaroscuro contrasting shades, like black with gilded details and neutral greys with vividly-hued embellishment, and it’s looking fresher than ever. Get your hands on these 11 classic pieces before everybody else does.
