Jackets are so of-the-moment and the easiest and latest must-have accessory for celebs in the breezier LA temperatures and chillier NY winds. Jackets are the perfect slip-ons over dresses and the perfect company to skinny jeans. When jewelry and belts become too gaudy, jackets are the easiest way to walk out the door looking effortless and chic. Let’s see which jackets the celebs are choosing to throw over their designer catches this season.

Tuxedo Jackets:
Tuxedo jackets may have been around forever, but they’re getting a major revival this season. These babies are much more appealing than your average menswear blazer because of their longer cut and fitted waist. They also go with everything! They’re a fun way to dress up a rocker tee and the perfect accent to a tight fitting sheath or ruffled skirt.

Gwyneth Paltrow is a tuxedo jacket kind of girl, choosing to accent her silver Stella McCartney minidress and later, pairing one over a leather Alaia skirt and American Apparel tank. Kate Moss is queen of the tuxedo jacket, throwing one over latex leggings or skinny jeans. Katie Holmes has a night on the town, buttoning up her blazer in a structured all-black look. Looks like Karl Lagerfeld was right when he started wearing his over a white tee. Tuxedo jackets are here to stay.

Leather Jackets:
Celebs love leather jackets, but this season they’re changing it up a bit. Yes, the normal cut that hits at the waist is still in style but smaller versions are making their rounds and standard shapes are being replaced by deconstructed ones. Lauren Conrad and Katie Holmes were both seen on the streets of NY wearing cropped cuts—Lauren paired hers with sailor pants and Katie also chose to accent the jacket with wide leg jeans. Not a night goes by when we don’t see Jamie-Lynn Sigler funking up her party dress with a leather coat. They come with big buttons, large zippers, and asymmetrical lines. But however you decide to wear your leather jacket this season, just know you’ll definitely be in style.

Sorry, PETA, looks like fur is making a comeback. Whether it’s real or faux, celebs are taking fur accessories to the streets. The animal-rights organization may not be thrilled, but Lindsay Lohan shows no signs of stopping – and neither does Debra Messing, Vanessa Hudgens, Gwyneth Paltrow, or Becki Newton who have all worn fur chubbies at major events. Fur may not be for the faint of heart, but they’re the go to style for celebs who want to add a little something to an ultra elegant look. Try it today.
