The star is the first of many celebs to step out in the fall fashion must-have

Looking for an easy way to add edge to an otherwise plain outfit? Take a cue from Rihanna and Katharine McPhee, who opted to punch up their ensembles with bold moto jackets.

The pop star was snapped wearing a hunter green leather jacket when she landed in Tokyo last week, instantly upgrading her T-shirt, jeans and sneakers.

The Smash actress was spotted in a similar coat, but in a rich blue hue, with a striped midi-dress and cool sneakers on Tuesday in New York City.

If a Crayola-colored coat can transform two mega-stars’ outfits from relaxed to effortlessly cool, we can only imagine what it’ll do for your wardrobe (and ours!), too. Just another trend we’re excited to try this fall.
