A leather jacket is a fall wardrobe must-have. It can act as a basic with skinny jeans and a scarf, or it can add an edge to a flirty frock. A real leather jacket can set you back a few hundred big ones, not to mention some of us prefer to be cruelty-free with our fashion. But there are so many beautiful faux leather jackets available, it doesn’t matter what your reasons are for faking it.


Snag a trendy red vegan leather jacket to throw on over a maxi dress. Slip on a cropped moto jacket during your next night out with the girls. Switch it up with a shirt style, or opt for the classic biker look. With so many options to choose from, all your upcoming OOTDs can include a faux leather jacket. Here are our faves.
