I've always been a fan of the T-Birds from Grease. I love that sort of biker look even better when girls rock it though. This Fashionista is wearing a simple white button-down and a bomber jacket with jeans and leather boots. The simplicity of the outfit allows for the black items to stand out, thus effectively making her look like a badass, even with that sweet smile.
