For last night’s winter premiere of Pretty Little Liars, costume designer Mandi Line needed to make Aria (Lucy Hale) stand out, and she knew which piece would do just that. “I had this jacket for a few months,” Line said of the pastel Unif motorcycle jacket. “It was too big for Lucy, and I knew it was going to be uncomfortable, so I knew it had to be a short scene.”

Fit wasn’t the only challenge the stylist faced. She and Hale experimented with many different accessories before settling on a simple graphic tee and jeans.  “We could have [paired it] with a flashy shirt, or a tulle skirt, but we knew we wanted this jacket to tell the story,” Line added. “When it comes to a statement piece, you have to know when to say when.”
