The best leather jackets can be found in many places. They are the ultimate jacket for looking super cool when you need to take your outfit from 0 to 100. Not only does such a key piece journey with you, looking good no matter what the trend climate may dictate, but the right one will also get better with age.
Remember that the best leather jackets get softer—they retain their shape (although leather does stretch a little after the first few years, so buy a snug size if you want a close fit). Naturally, finding The One is hard—it's a commitment. We've edited the current collection with a ferocious, hard-to-please eye, bringing you the greatest leather jackets you can buy right now.
The Classic Moto
Whether styling over a t-shirt, dress, or crop top, you can never go wrong in a classic leather moto.
Go for a bold hued leather topper in Fall 2017's hottest color trend: red.
Crop It Like It's Hot
Take note from Bella Hadid and opt for a cropped version that's easy to pair with virtually everything.
Say It Loud
Go for a statement-making (literally) style that's sure to stand out this season.
In The Neutral
Take a break from your go-to black leather jacket and trade in for a neutral hue that still pairs perfectly with everything in your closet.
Get inspired by The Matrix and go for a leather trench that's perfect for transitioning into fall and winter.
Stand out in an all-white leather topper à la Solange.
Tell Me About It, Stud
Lend some extra edge to your classic leather moto with a studded version.
Bring some animal instincts into the equation with a crocodile or snake-skin embossed topper.
Today's leather jackets are so much more than a lineup of black bikers (however, should a classic moto still make your heart skip a beat, that's entirely acceptable). Whether studded and rendered in an unusual color, or sleek, tailored and a million miles away from a Harley-Davidson, there are options aplenty. We're partial to a more retro style with leather-covered buttons and a natty little collar—they look great with jeans and provide a far smarter option on any given workday. And don't forget they're a great layering tool for winter—just add a roll neck underneath and a coat over the top. So, what are you waiting for, get inspired:
