One jacket to rule them all? As far as we’re concerned, the honor goes to Gucci’s hand-painted, hand-embroidered, studded leather motorcycle jacket, which you might have spotted on Kendall Jenner in a Vogue video earlier this month. It’s a statement jacket if we’ve ever seen one, and with a five-figure price tag, it’s an investment, too. While common wisdom says you should only save up for timeless, practical items that will get a lot of use, we happen to think the opposite is true. A superspecial, emotional piece can be just as useful—and surprisingly versatile.
A vibrant, over-the-top jacket—whether it’s Gucci or an equally memorable one you found at a vintage shop—can take you from an early-morning gym class to an evening soiree. Simply swap your track pants and sneakers for a silk gown and stilettos. The same epic jacket can work for the office, too, with a prim button-down and trousers. What else do you own that can do all that and qualifies as an instant heirloom? While you rack your brain, click through the slideshow to shop all of the styling possibilities.
