We’re not exactly sure where all of fashion’s “rules” came from. Was there a historic ceremony at which Coco Chanel, Anna Wintour, and Billy Porter all chiseled edicts into stone tablets, and our invites somehow got lost in the mail? Whatever the origins of the rules, we’re pretty sure Emma Roberts just broke all of them with her risky leather jacket — and she couldn’t look better.

On a casual coffee run this week, Roberts defied the institution by wearing an all-white Hobo leather motorcycle jacket, and we’re pleased to report she doesn’t seem to have spilled, scratched, or sullied it in any which way. Yes, it’s after Labor Day, but she made the case for the white leather moto as the piece of outerwear we should be reaching for on casual errand runs and self-dates year-round.

Naturally, she hit a couple of other on-the-money trends, too. Her By Far snakeskin boots, her straight-leg jeans, her Moon Juice shopping bag (leak your supplement regimen, Emma!), and especially her coordinated Michael Stars cardigan and white leather Chloe bucket bag all worked together to strengthen her defiant jacket choice. One small white-leather-clad step for Emma Roberts, one giant establishment-challenging leap for mankind.

The rebel warrior’s exact white leather jacket is refreshingly affordable, at least in the context of celebrity-worn pieces we tend to obsess over, at $375. The impeccably constructed piece is made of 100 percent lambskin leather, which explains the cost. Shop it, plus some of our favorite affordable vegan options to get the look, below.
