The easiest must-have piece for any girl's wardrobe is a leather jacket. Throw it over jeans and a tee for an instant outfit upgrade or with a dress for a touch of girly edge. Black is the obvious choice, but this season try switching things up with a unexpected hue: green. From emerald to olive, this shade isn't reserved for St. Patrick's Day. (Although, don't let us stop you from pulling this bad boy out when the holiday does roll around.) 

Call us crazy, but we even believe the right shade of muted green can work as a neutral. If you're not into color play, throwing one over an all-black ensemble adds just the right amount of pop, as demonstrated by Kate Upton, below.
