I love a motorcycle jacket. I guess it's just the bad ass in me, but it's always just so cool.

The trend this holiday season is to layer a fitted leather jacket of a dress (Think last year's black blazer). The style mixes well with sequins, feathered skirts, ruffles, a maxi dress and even an evening dress.

Take Anne Hathaway here. She topped the Marchesa look with a leather jacket. To me, it nails the idea if you're looking for a good way to make it work for evening.

Of course, if you're not party hopping, wearing the jacket with jeans and a tee a la Marlon Brando never goes out of style.
