The Inherent Cool of the Black Leather Jacket


There is something inherently cool about black leather jackets. To wear one is to belong, but to belong to an alternative, rebellious group - punks, Hell's Angels, aviators, Bolsheviks, T-800's, you know, dangerous people. People so dangerous, and so cool, that their alleged suicide notes read:
"We had a death pact. I have to keep my half of the bargain. Please bury me next to my baby. Bury me in my leather jacket, jeans and motorcycle boots. Goodbye."


Clearly, I am no Sid Vicious, but I am not impervious to the audacious charms of the black leather jacket. I paired mine with a dress and booties, a decidedly more ladylike approach to rocker chic. Do you have a black leather jacket? What's your favorite way to style it?
