You probably already have a black leather jacket that you love and wear to death. It’s a basic worth investing in that you’ll have for the rest of your life, a piece you can throw on with just about anything! With fall soon upon us, though, I’m looking for something a little different – a leather jacket with unexpected flair. A touch of quilting, a tweed panel, chains…pick your poison!
Rebecca Minkoff Ansel Tweed Jacket: When leather and tweed together, the results are surprisingly badass. Pair with black ankle boots to amp up the effect. At Bloomingdale’s for $398.
Armani Collezioni Twill Front Leather Jacket: At nearly 3 grand, this isn’t the fall fling the others might be thought of, but with a subtle incorporation of chevron-printed twill, it’s as wearable as any classic leather jacket. At Bloomingdale’s for $2,975.
Kenneth Cole New York Adara Zip Jacket: Besides being a fun change of pace, printed panels and other non-leather elements help bring down the price. At Bloomingdale’s for $228.
Cleobella Clover Jacket: The leather jacket goes ladylike with a well-tailored, blazer fit and a wave of antiqued brass beading decorating the back, adding a sense of movement with each step you take. On Shopbop for $768.
