The leather jacket is a classic and we all know by now that it works well with other basics like black pants and jeans. But did you know that you can wear one with a little black dress or a string of pearls just as easily? Here are new ideas for how to wear your leather jackets. 1.

Wear pearls with a black leather jacket, classic white tee (or button-down) and jeans or black pants like Katie Holmes has done. It's a great mix of feminine and masculine that gives this such chic.

With a Rocker Tee Mark Metcalf/Getty Images Get that rocker chick look by adding a concert tee shirt to a leather jacket. Ripped and/or faded jeans complete the look. 3. Add Stripes Andreas Rentz/Getty Images There's something bold and fresh about stripes that just melds perfectly with a leather jacket. Add a scarf like Jasmin Wagner has done for a French chic touch. 4. Wear a Long Skirt Francois Durand/Getty Images Take leather formal. Try adding a leather jacket to evening separates like Elisabeth von Gutmann has done with her slit-to-there long skirt and white shirt. She keeps it funky with a choker and black leather ankle boots, but the overall effect is youthful and dressed up: updated but sophisticated. 5. Try a Different Color for Your Jacket Jason Kempin/Getty Images Black leather is a classic -- and goes with everything -- but don't rule out other dark neutrals like olive. Here, Michelle Trachtenberg wears olive in place of black with an otherwise all-black look. The result? A fresh spin. 6. Wear a Leather Jacket with Print Pants Francois Durand/Getty Images Sure, you could go with solid-color pants or jeans for a traditional look, but print pants will wake up your look faster. Try a graphic print with a contrast jacket -- like Kristen Stewart has done with her black and white pants and yellow jacket -- or pick a dominant color from your print pants and use that in your jacket color. 7. Play with Proportions Jamie Squire/Getty Images By putting a cropped, fitted jacket over a long, slim tee and low-rise jeans Jessica Biel has created a fabulous casual look that shows off her figure better than bulkier pieces would. Make this work for you by adding a tunic or long tee under a waist-length leather jacket. Add leggings or skinny jeans to keep the slim vibe going. 8. Make it Ladylike Pascal le Segretain/Getty Images Toss a leather jacket over your shoulders in place of a cardigan like Julia Restoin-Roitfeld has done? Why not? Same goes for wearing it with ladylike pieces such as pencil skirts, floral prints or ruffles. Just replace the "expected" piece with a leather jacket for a more youthful spin on girly looks.

Try it With a Little Black Dress Stuart Wilson/Getty Images How to make a little black dress look modern and fun? Add a leather jacket like Jessica Wright has done. The little black dress works with a contrasting color -- gray, white or brights -- or with a black jacket. 10. Add More Leather Stephen Lovekin/Getty Images Leather and....more leather? Why not? Olivia Wilde rocks this edgy look by choosing two different leather colors and breaking it up with a white tee in between. Head-to-toe black leather may be too biker, so opt for either different colors or different textures (like stamped crocodile with smooth leather.) And if leather pants aren't your thing look for the new "coated" jeans that have the look of leather but are easier to wear.
