The run-of-the-mill bomber had its time in the spotlight, but the trendiest jacket of the moment is the wannabe souvenir jacket. My friend Seth Weisser, owner of What Goes Around Comes Around, has been collecting them for over 25 years. Actually, I scored mine from his cooler-than-thou store in SoHo, frequented by the likes of Katy Perry and Rihanna.

Like so many of my lifelong fashion dependencies, my motorcycle jacket addiction began in the ’90s. I now have more moto jackets in my closet than I can count.

Some sales this time of year tempt you with pieces that you want, but don’t need; fortunately, outerwear falls into the latter category, so there’s no buyer’s remorse creeping around the corner. And even better yet, it’s actually the time of year when you need a coat!
It’s that time of year again: We’re about to make the transition into fall. If there’s one thing that will always come back every September, it’s your top taupe staples. Due to its perfect balance between warm and cool, taupe is the ultimate versatile hue.
My gorgeous friend Caroline Issa has come out with her second collection for Nordstrom, and it’s just as sophisticated and wearable as the first! For Fall ’15, she’s brought us 29 designs with a focus on menswear-style suits and moto jackets.
