    Promising review: "This jacket is my child. I've had this leather jacket for a year now, and believe me when I say I wear it literally every day that it's below 75 degrees. It's almost cropped and is a little higher in the back. The bottom of the sleeves get so soft over time that I literally just touch them even when I'm not wearing the jacket. This jacket is worth the money. I wear it almost every day, get constant compliments, and it'll last forever." —GR8NYC

    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, buy it. You won't regret it." —Alison

    Three images of models wearing black, brown, and white/gray jackets

    Promising review: "I can't say enough good things about this jacket. I liked it when I saw it online but the pictures didn't do justice for the actual item. The leather is feathery soft, the workmanship is superb, and the style is chic. I love both sides of the jacket; imagine getting two jackets in one!

    Neiman Marcus

    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 seems 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 and two colors).

    18. cropped J.Crew black leather jacket requiring no introduction. This trendy number showcases a cozy quilted design and elegant gold button details totally worth drooling over.

    Note: The product description says this jacket runs large.

    Promising review: "When I saw this in store I had to try it on straight away. I fell in love with it immediately! It is so soft and well made. It fit true to size. I will get so much wear out of this, even in the dead of winter. I can wear this like a blazer and wear a warmer coat over top. Classic and modern. LOVE. ❤️" —Fabi

    Get it from J.Crew for $509.90 (originally $598; available in sizes 00–12).

    Pinto Ranch

    Promising review: "The jacket is beautiful. So beautiful that I bought a second one in a different color. It is designed to be form fitting, so I bought an M when I normally wear an S. The leaves are sewn on to a black mesh-like fabric, so I am more comfortable wearing a cami or light shirt under it since I am not sure how much would show through the mesh. It is beautiful and stunning." —Carolyn G.

    Get it from Pinto Ranch for $198 (available in sizes XS–XL and three colors).

    20. An Urban Outfitters vintage leather flight jacket sourced through the brand's "Urban Renewal" program. UO has a limited supply of similar designs, which means each one is a truly unique vintage piece given new life (thanks to you)!

    Note: Due to the nature of this jacket being preowned and vintage, the exact style and condition will vary.

    Promising review: "It's perfectly super oversized and exactly what I wanted! The style that I received is like a 'Members Only' jacket with a crinkled leather texture (as opposed to wrinkled leather that will smooth out). It also appears to be deadstock vs. used or preowned... no labels or tags inside. It's lightweight and so comfy to wear in SoCal weather." —tily2u

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $149 (available in sizes S–L and two colors).

    21. A durable Orvis brown leather jacket showcasing a faded patina plus a blanket-pattern lining so cozy you'll be asking all your friends to feel how soft it is.

    Three images of a model wearing the brown jacket

    Promising review: "I took a chance ordering this jacket online. Would I like the color? Could I get it zipped up over my hips? Would the sleeves be too long? Well, I needn't have worried. The Latitude Leather Jacket turned out to be everything I had hoped for. The color is gorgeous. I could, indeed, get it zipped over my hips (yay!). The sleeves are the perfect length. The style overall is just what I wanted. There are no epaulets or extra hardware to clutter up the look. It has two slip pockets that I can comfortably slide my hands into. I'm so glad that I took the chance on buying this jacket. I know I'll be wearing it for years." —mylastcat

    Get it from Orvis for $398 (available in sizes XS–XL).

    22. black leather jacket crafted with zip cuffs, a stylish asymmetric-front zipper closure, and swoonworthy fringe accents that would look great paired with some comfy jeans and cowboy boots.

    Boot Barn

    Promising review: "This is the best jacket ever! You can’t go wrong with STS, but dang they outdid themselves. The quality is amazing, and the fringe is so fun and edgy! It is meant to be a fitted jacket. I normally wear a medium but sized up to a large so I can wear layers under it and have a looser more casual feel. Love this jacket and am so glad I bought it. Would highly recommend." —MountainMama

    Get it from Boot Barn for $289.99 (available in sizes XS–XL).

    Willing to splurge on a jacket but want to save some $$$ on pants? Enter: all of these stylish faux leather pants.

    Promising review: "The best leather jacket! I bought this jacket last year and it’s so beautiful! I love every opportunity I get to wear this jacket. It’s a really nice high quality leather jacket and it’s totally worth the investment. It’s so nice and warm in the winter!" —Kami

    Get it from Michael Kors for $247.50 (originally $495; available in sizes XXS–XL and three colors).
