Leather jackets are shaping up to be one of fall’s biggest trends, but with such a splurge item, you want to make sure you’re getting the most for your money. We love the way that Kate Walsh takes her Chloe leather jacket and wears it so perfectly — day or night! Follow Kate’s lead and pair your jacket with a simple white t-shirt and dark jeans for day time. And at night, leave your wrap at home and add a dash of tough chic to your cocktail dress with the jacket, like Kate did with her Dolce & Gabbana sheath. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite leather jackets to get you started! Tell us: Will you get a leather jacket for fall? Would you try one over an evening dress?

yeah i probably would i just would have picked a different dress. that dress is too formal for the jacket.

I think Kate is an amazing woman & I simply love her style! She is so exotic!

Dawn, you need help if you think she looks heavy- honestly, no wonder people have eating disorders.

Anyway, I think it looks okay with the dress although it is a little formal of a dress for that though. And since when is a leather jacket a new fall trend? When did they ever go out of style?

She is one one those woman who looks fabulous in casual clothes. Like Jen Aniston. However she needs to leave the casual for casual, lether jackets with formal dresses do not mix.

I think she is stunning, but the leather jacket doesn’t go well with that dress. And yes, she looks a bit heavy!

ALY on

Absolutley. You can get twice the wear out of it and still look cute.
