One of the things that I have always loved about fashion is that there are some pieces that you will acquire that will never go out of style. White button down blouses, structured trench coats, and little black dresses are all articles of clothing that you can wear during any season of any year and still look stylish. It’s these transitional pieces that I have always made sure I invest in – meaning quality over quantity. However, there is one must-have item that I have yet to add into my closet: the perfect black leather jacket.
Having a shorter/curvier frame, I have to admit that I am a little intimidated by most leather jackets, especially those that give off the ‘biker’ vibe. However, this does’t mean that I am not obsessed with their edgy look and cool-girl vibes. So, here I am on the hunt for a killer leather jacket that will fit my frame and keep me looking stylish year round.
As with most Want List posts, I wanted to find options for those of us on a budget and for those of us who are not. But, we’re talking leather jackets here and even the idea of faux leather (which I prefer) seems like it will cost you a pretty penny. While nervous I wouldn’t be able to give many ‘Save’ options, I ventured out into the world of online shopping and was quite surprised when I realized that there are lots of brands out there who will give you a stylish jacket under $100.

As much as I love the lesser priced options that I found (above), I also remembered my rule about investing in those special pieces of fashion that will walk through most of your life with you. With that in mind, I started digging into higher-end brands to see what they had and naturally, I was not let down. I very quickly stumbled onto multiple pieces from Zara, Topshop, and Theory. The real challenge was deciding which leather looks I loved to most from them (I think Theory – of course the most expensive one – won me over). Regardless of the price point, its great to see that there is something out there for everyone. Not only are the prices different, but each jacket has its own personality which makes finding the perfect jacket for you, that much easier.
