    Another promising review: "The jacket arrived today, and I am incredibly impressed. Excellent quality leather without an overwhelming smell. I had to buy and return a number of leather jackets before finding this one (because of poor quality, sizing, etc.), so I would advise you to save yourself some time and purchase this one without worry." —CP

The lightweight buttery leather jacket hangs perfectly. It's slightly tailored and hits just above the waist. The collar can be worn up or folded down for two separate looks. I absolutely love it! If you're on the fence about ordering it online, pull the trigger. You won't regret it." —Alison

    Promising review: "WOW! After seeing the high-end designer version of this jacket, I went bananas for it. But I couldn’t justify the price for what is — truly speaking, a novelty piece. After seeing this piece and reading the reviews, I decided to give it a go! So HAPPY I did. The company followed up with measurement requests and confirmed again after receipt. When I received the jacket, I was THRILLED. So much so I wore it around the house with my pajama bottoms. It did need a little pressing, which I did by laying a T-shirt over it with a temp-sensitive iron. Worked like a charm. The fit, the softness, the service, and price all made this my new favorite piece!!! Can’t wait to debut it." —The Style Bits

    Get it from Amazon for $149.98+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and two black styles).

    Promising review: "I love this jacket! I’ve gotten many compliments when wearing it! The leather and workmanship are very nice, good-quality, genuine leather. It looks just like what is pictured. The zipper is high quality and heavy, so I’m not worried it will break. I like how it fits and how it looks when I wear it. I would highly recommend this jacket." —TravelMom

    Plus, some faux leather leggings you'll probably want to permanently live in.

    Promising review: "I love my jacket without reservation. There’s nothing not to like! It’s a fall weather jacket with quilted leather sections and stretchy mesh fabric that seem to modify my temperature enough so I don’t take it off during the warmer hours of the day. It’s unique (which I love) so EVERYONE doesn’t have one, and it’s genuine leather. It’s edgy, so if you don’t want attention this jacket isn’t for you. Otherwise it’s true to size but does stretch for heavier garments so it can be layered. It returns to size right away, and the underarms haven’t beaded up. I’ve worn it every day since I bought it. I am very happy." —Alithia T.

    Get it from Neiman Marcus for $299 (available in sizes XS–L).
