The Only Item You Need to Embrace Biker Fashion

Once reserved for rock-and-roll stars and 1950s movie icons (we're looking at you, James Dean), emblems of the über-cool elite have been adopted by the fashion crowd. We're talking "biker" fashion and how it's long since come to be synonymous with the cool kids. But while leather boots, slicked-back hair and a classic Harley-Davidson are all hallmarks of the style, there's one piece that has stood the test of time. Over and over again, the biker jacket has proven to be quite a mainstay in the modern wardrobe.

During fashion weeks the world over, you'll spot models, editors, and the like with a leather iteration draped oh so carefully over their shoulders. It's no surprise why: Throw a biker jacket over literally anything for an allover-cool finish. We're certainly fans of combining it with jeans and a T-shirt, but this season, we're loving biker jackets that balance out feminine dresses and skirts, too.

No wardrobe is complete without this one biker-girl item. Keep reading to see how fashion girls are dipping their toes into biker fashion, and shop our favorite jackets.
