Luxe to Less: Leather Jackets

Find a classic wardrobe staple

There’s nothing like a sleek (faux or real) leather jacket to complete your look. With the colder weather approaching having a staple piece in your wardrobe is worth the investment. Embody durability, versatility, and style by simply throwing on your jacket with a pair of jeans and a white t-shirt or add an element of grunge to your ensemble by pairing it with an evening look. Whatever your style or budget we’ve selected an array of both real and faux leather jackets to suit you.

There’s no shortage of luxe leather jackets on the market. These are definite investment pieces with the price tag to match.

The Versace Cropped Safety-Pin Biker Jacket is crafted from 100% lambskin that will stand the test of time. With gold metal hardware and the iconic safety pin embellishments, this biker style piece with have you looking cool-girl chic.

We would suggest the Angelina Single-Breasted Leather Jacket from Ann Demeulemeester for a more streamlined take. This blazer and biker jacket hybrid features a cinched waist and shoulder pads for a tailored look. It’s punctuated with satin lining and notch lapels for an added air of luxury.

For an oversized look, Joseph has created the perfect leather jacket. Ending at the mid-thigh with a detachable belt allows for versatility in silhouette. Use the belt to cinch in the waist or go without to embrace a more voluminous look.

A modern take on this wardrobe classic would be The Crescent Moon-Print Leather Jacket from Marine Serre. This jacket is decorated with its iconic moon-shaped crescent for an unexpected detail. The simple tailoring and silhouette ensure it is a timeless addition to any wardrobe.
