Don't store away your crop tops for the season quite yet. Gwyneth Paltrow, serial street style and red carpet star, has given us a reason to hold onto that last sartorial bit of summer just a little while longer.

The actress stepped out in N.Y.C. on Thursday night looking quite chic in a strapless black bandeau crop top and matching black lace overlay pencil skirt, both by Monique Lhuillier. She paired the ensemble with strappy ankle tie heels, but the real kicker was her outerwear. GP expertly topped the outfit with an aubergine leather moto jacket by Proenza Schouler, instantly taking it from summer cool to fall chic. Red lips and her signature straight blowout rounded out the sleek look. Talk about outfit inspiration.
