The September issue of StyleWatch reveals how to achieve this fall’s fierce-but-ladylike look with the “in” piece of the season — a short leather jacket! It’s the perfect way of mixing uptown chic with downtown edge. Claire Danes is spot-on with her unlikely combo — a Prada chocolate bomber adds just the right dose of tough-girl attitude to her sweet dress and feminine heels. Want an easy way to add a twist — and a touch of rugged toughness — to a white tee and jeans? Try a cropped version like Katherine McPhee’s YaYa Aflalo jacket. Try a few of our favorites:
