The One Thing NYC and Paris Girls Wear Year-Round

If we made a poll on the one piece every woman should own, we're pretty sure a leather jacket would take the top spot. But how to wear a moto jacket? Look to the women of both New York and Paris to provide some inspiration. While each city has its own signature style, women from both locales often turn to a moto jacket to complete their outfit. 

Both sleek and edgy, a moto jacket has the ability to add a little something special to just about any ensemble. Add it to jeans and a simple tee for a relaxed daytime ensemble, or throw it on over a slip dress for a going-out look that's oh so cool. And whether your style of choice is sleek or studded, there's really no going wrong with this piece. Curious to see how New York and Parisian women wear their moto jackets?
