And nothing says "don't mess" like a tough leather look. For this ensemble, we styled a quilted Topshop moto jacket (<a href="http://us.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=33060&storeId=13052&productId=6219711&langId=-1&siteID=Hy3bqNL2jtQ-n17HnnCTjjB_0P_6f4MR9w&cmpid=aff_ls_tsus&_$ja=tsid:21416|prd:Hy3bqNL2jtQ" target="_blank">$360 at Topshop</a>) with a simple circle skirt (<a href="http://us.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?beginIndex=1&viewAllFlag=&catalogId=33060&storeId=13052&productId=6447909&langId=-1&sort_field=Relevance&categoryId=208649&parent_categoryId=208580&pageSize=20" target="_blank">$100 at Topshop</a>) and comfy lace-up oxfords from American Apparel (<a href="http://store.americanapparel.net/danceshew.html?cid=197-1583" target="_blank">$62 at American Apparel</a>). For a touch of contrasting texture, we added Isabel Marant's violet woven tee (<a href="http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/314719?cm_mmc=LinkshareUS-_-Hy3bqNL2jtQ-_-Custom-_-LinkBuilder&siteID=Hy3bqNL2jtQ-zNppwRZkDxsv9YLpBHUxNA" target="_blank">$300 at Net-a-Porter</a>).

Raquel Allegra's black leather sheath (<a href="http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/321003" target="_blank">$615 at Net-a-Porter</a>) calls for a suitably edgy handbag like Zara's zippered black satchel (<a href="http://www.zara.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product/us/en/zara-us-W2012/269203/828278/SOFT%2BSHOPPER%2BWITH%2BZIPS" target="_blank">$159 at Zara</a>). Modern cut-away Topshop pumps (<a href="http://us.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=33060&storeId=13052&productId=6353565&langId=-1" target="_blank">$136 at Topshop</a>) and a braided rope necklace (<a href="http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?BR=f21&Category=acc_jewelry&ProductID=1020192420&VariantID=" target="_blank">$7.80 at Forever21</a>) keep vibe from feeling too punk-rock.

For softness, we added a frayed woven scarf from Jardin des Orangers (<a href="http://www.mytheresa.com/us_en/cashmere-triangle-scarf.html" target="_blank">$139 at MyTheresa</a>), and Repetto's low suede booties (<a href="http://www.lagarconne.com/store/item.htm?itemid=16261&sid=172&pid=" target="_blank">$159 at LaGarconne</a>) will keep your feet comfy even if you're stomping all over the city.

A preppy Carven blouse with a contrasting collar (<a href="http://www.mytheresa.com/us_en/pop-cotton-button-down.html" target="_blank">$337 at MyTheresa</a>) feels unexpected with Malene Birger's slouchy leather trousers (<a href="http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/319429?cm_mmc=LinkshareUS-_-Hy3bqNL2jtQ-_-Custom-_-LinkBuilder&siteID=Hy3bqNL2jtQ-6O3OPN1guZTei9.pFmNBSg" target="_blank">$895 at Net-a-Porter</a>).
