What is it about leather jackets that make one look instantly cool? Maybe it penetrated our brain at a young age while we watched The Fonz in his tough leather jacket in Happy Days. Well, times have changed with women and men alike sporting this bad to bone outerwear. The off-center version of the classic jacket will give you a sexy, modernized look, a la Sarah Larson in Rick Owens. I dare you to be a bad gal and try out an asymmetrical leather jacket.
Sunny Serena was looking gorgeous per usual in last night's episode of Gossip Girl. Being the character with the most wearable wardrobe, Serena injected some street cool into her school uniform with a fetching pair of flat boots from Barney's Co-op, a trusty Mike & Chris leather jacket, and a Ferragamo bag. Now that you've got her look, all you need is the never-ending parties, Blair drama, and a quick-witted underdog boy toy. However, that might all be thrown into turmoil with the return of the postal-savvy "G" next week . . .
