Dress it up or dress it down, the asymmetrical moto jacket is your style staple for the next few months. Warm enough for Houston’s winter chill and light enough for the often overly heated indoors, this Michael Kors asymmetric leather jacket combines on-trend leather with sleek, fitted style.

FRIDAY: date night at 'FIELD OF LIGHT'

Throw on a pair of boyfriend jeans, a fitted sweater and your moto jacket for an evening amongst the dazzling lights at Discovery Green. With stacked bangles and sexy booties, this look takes you from the office to date night for an after-dusk stroll through the captivating light installation.
