One classic wardrobe staple that belongs in every woman’s closet is the leather jacket. The ultimate layering piece, a cool leather jacket can do everything from elevating a T-shirt and jeans to making a slip dress look more casual. It’s a hero piece that can do it all. And depending on where you live, it can be a layering piece to wear year-round or a transitional jacket to wear on repeat in the spring and fall.
While leather jackets come in a variety of colors, we’ve narrowed in on the ultimate classic: black leather jackets. The essential outerwear piece adds a cool-girl element to any outfit. But finding the perfect leather jacket can be a challenge. This editor searched for years before finding the right one. The sleeves might be too short, the fit could be too boxy, or perhaps the leather is too heavy. But if you’re after styles that are editor-approved, look no further. We’ve narrowed down our favorite options at every price point. These classic styles are sure to be staples in your closet for the next five years, if not forever.
