Though the weather in LA isn’t exactly chilly most days (though we’ve had a last minute cold front recently!), that doesn’t mean we should completely disregard the classic leather jacket when it comes to getting dressed. The rest of the country is still experiencing proper Winter, and with leather jackets being the perfect staple year round, we could all do with a bit of a jacket refresh this season. Like a good pair of jeans, a leather jacket can be thrown on for any occasion – when it’s just a little breezy, layered over a hoodie, or even worn under an overcoat for extra comfort and warmth. It’s a must-have item that no girl should live without, regardless of the climate she lives in.
Since the beginning of my career as a fashion writer and stylist, I’ve always emphasized the importance of investing in timeless leather pieces, notably the leather jacket. It’s a splurge that won’t feel like one down the road, and the perfect piece will last a lifetime. If you don’t already own a real leather jacket, my advice would be to spend some time searching for your perfect style and fit, save up – and go for it! The beauty of leather is that even if you outgrow the style, the resell value is still quite high, making it a worthwhile investment. If leather isn’t your thing, or if you’re looking for a trendier style that may not be relevant in a year or two, there are tons of faux/vegan leather options to choose from as well. I’ve curated my top picks for leather jackets to splurge on this season. And don’t worry, they range from affordable to more high-end pieces that won’t disappoint. Would you wear any of these?

You look so cozy! Love! I have a black leather jacket that I bought from Mango a million years ago (like 7 or 8) and it honestly has barely changed, amazing quality, and goes with everything! I would love to invest in one from All Saints one day 🙂
