The leather jacket is a wardrobe staple that goes with anything and everything, and it will instantly upgrade a fall outfit to "rocker chic." It's a "must own" item for any respectable fashionista who is on a hunt for closet staples and essentials that will further elevate her style.

Leather jackets are so versatile. You can do quilted or studded fabric, or add an edge to a girly dress, making an outfit truly dynamic and balanced. Or you can pair the jacket with skinnies for an essential 'Girls Night Out' uniform.

Leather jackets go with print dresses or frilly, femme (and pink) frocks -- like Avril Lavigne and Carrie Underwood demonstrated. Actress Ashley Benson upped the toughness and overall styling of her basic leggings-and-boots combo with her studded, textured jacket.

Meanwhile, the always stunning Olivia Wilde donned her leather jacket with simple dark rinse skinnies, and it was a pairing that proved that the piece is a modern staple!

Even better, a sturdy leather jacket will last you for years. It's an investment piece and you'll only need to buy one.
