There's no doubt about it—a black leather jacket is a classic wardrobe staple. It's a super-versatile piece that works with everything from jeans to frilly frocks. But this week we're loving leather that deviates from traditional noir. Check out stylish bloggers Linda Shin of PotPie Du Monde, Amy Zheng of Candid Classic, and Amanda of A.Co Est. 1984, who gave the trusty 'ol biker-inspired topper a modern upgrade by wearing it in colorful, eye-catching shades.

We're loving the rich, earthy tones of Linda's ensemble, anchored by her deep chocolate brown Forever 21 jacket. Her bright yellow dress (also from Forever 21) and neon green skinny headband keep things light and cheerful, while her mahogany circle scarf and suede knee-high Nine West boots make the look seasonally appropriate, and adorable.

For a more versatile option, try a camel-colored jacket like Amy. This neutral hue suits a wide color palette making it the most wearable choice. It also goes with just about any kind of look, though we love how Amy styled her's with a feminine, floral dress. And it's practical; it works as a great layering piece and won't break the bank—Amy's is only $24.48 from Target!

Don't be fooled by your monitor; Amanda's jacket may appear black but it's not, it's actually dark navy! The rich shade is predisposed to look best with gem tones, but we love how she paired it with other blues to accentuate the colors of her outfit. The Lapis jacket's fitted cut ties the flowing feel of her printed dress, boots and tights, together into one tailored, chic ensemble.
