Fall Must Haves: 10 Marvelous Motorcycle Jackets

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…

Fall Must Haves: 11 Pretty-As-A-Painting Baroque Pieces

Think baroque, with its shadowy drama, rich colors, and exaggerated opulence, is best left in 17th century Europe?

Get your hands on these 11 classic pieces before everybody else does.

Fall Must Haves: 10 Oxblood Pieces (They’re Less Scary Than They Sound)

Flip open any fashion magazine this season and I guarantee it will declare fall’s hottest color as oxblood. Not human blood, not cow blood, not goat blood, not any of the other grosser sounding color names on Winona’s list, but oxblood! Otherwise known by the considerably less alarming name “maroon,” it’s a deep, sort of dull reddish brown, which I guess is the color that oxen bleed. Semantics aside, oxblood fits perfectly into the dark, vampy color scheme we’ve forecasted for fall, and its gothy appeal is sure to complement any autumn-to-winter wardrobe (especially if you, like me, tend to find yourself in a rut of all black everything from October through February). Check out my ten picks for oxblood pieces that will see you through this season and beyond … and please, do feel free to call it maroon.
