No cool girl's wardrobe is complete without a statement-making leather jacket. "I'm obsessed with this! The edgy studs and rock 'n' roll pins make it feel special," says Garcia. Look for one with unique embellishments—or personalize a jacket you already own with fun D.I.Y. touches, like of-the-moment patches. One jacket styling trick in every editor's arsenal? The casual over-the-shoulder drape. Sling it on like a cape for instant, effortless chic.
