Rihanna, the successful and stylish singer influenced by greats such as Alicia Keys and Beyonce, was recently seen spotted in a fashionable leather jacket. Always looking great, Rihanna layered a thin leather jacket over knits, tights and incredible patent boots to take her puppy, D.J., for a walk in New York City.

-choose a flare-bottomed jacket or coat if you are pear-shaped;
-petite women look terrific in jacket that come to the upper thigh;
-slender women can wear double-breasted designs well; and
-if you are apple-shaped, try swing coats, empire coats and the new trapeze styles.
By choosing a leather jacket in the right shape, you will look as fabulous as Rihanna in your new selection.
