We've long been fans of the classic leather jacket. But because the wardrobe standby is back in a big way this fall and winter, it takes a little something extra to make one truly stand out in the crowd. Our pick for wearing the trend is to look for a leather jacket with a hood.

The sweatshirt styling gives the look a dose of relaxed, casual cool that works whether you're pairing it with tights and a mini or jeans and a t-shirt. Plus, it just feels cozy.

So skip the simple bombers--and please, the leather blazers--and try a few of these on for size.
