The Best Faux Leather Jackets for Fall — and They Look Like the Real Deal

When the temps start to cool, and you're no longer sweating the second you step out the door, you might need a jacket as you transition to chillier nights. Fall isn't here yet, but it's better to go into the season prepared.


A faux leather jacket adds a touch of effortless cool to any outfit, and a faux leather jacket is even better for animals — and your wallet. Layer it over dresses and skirts now, sweaters and jeans later. From traditional moto jackets to a modern trench, these are the best faux leather jackets that are chic AF and animal friendly.

Maybe you already have enough black jackets in your closet. We're not entirely sure if that's a thing, but we respect branching out. Add a bolder pop of color to your jacket collection with this red croc faux leather jacket by I.AM.GIA. This popping jacket is a gorgeous burgundy color with a high gloss shine. The croc pattern looks decadent when paired with the matching faux leather skirt. The jacket alone is a stand-out piece, but if you really want all eyes on you, go for the full look.

Animal prints are basically outfit neutrals at this point. While we love a leopard print, snakeskin is having a major moment.

Sam Edelman Faux Fur Trim Faux Leather Jacket

Not necessarily a year-round jacket, but still worth noting. This red hot Sam Edelman jacket is a stunner. It's a faux leather jacket that is trimmed in a gorgeous plush faux fur you can't help but want to reach out and touch. You'll have to wait for the thermostat to drop significantly in order to wear this, but once it's cold enough we doubt you'll reach for anything else to keep you warm.
