When the temperature gets lower, our edge gets higher, and nothing screams "cool" like a timeless leather jacket. It's one of those items that you can dress up or down, and since it's such a classic piece, there are hundreds of reinvented versions of it, such as studded leather jackets or leather trench coats. Honestly, it's the closet staple that never goes out of style.
Because of that, we're constantly looking for new leather jacket outfit ideas so that we can get the most out of our pieces. From the classic leather blazer look to a trendy leather puffer coat situation, here are some photo inspirations to take you through the fall and winter.
1. Leather blazer
Happy 1st Day of Fall! 🍂 I just uploaded a Try On Haul with my favorite pieces from @express for the month of September! Link will be in my bio. I’ve been obsessing over this vegan leather blazer and I’m soooo happy I got my hands on it. They’re currently having a sale and everything is 40% off right now online!

Blazers aren't reserved for the workplace in the same way that leather isn't reserved for bar-hopping. Leather blazers let you elevate your look and give it a stylish edge, and it's the fall fashion trend we can get enough of.

This jacket is the perfect piece for both fall and winter: a little cool, a little cozy. Pair it with your favorite midi dress during the fall and with your favorite pair of jeans in the winter.

Give the classic ole' trench a twist by getting a leather one—it'll give your look an instantly vintage vibe. Honestly, you can wear this with practically anything in your closet, be it your favorite tee and jeans or your Stevie Nicks-inspired velvet ensemble. With a leather trench, the fashion world is your oyster.

You can totally wear white after Labor Day, and you can especially do it with a fall-approved material like leather. Mixing materials is one of the best ways to give a monochrome outfit depth and make it more interesting, so consider getting a white leather jacket if you tend to lean towards lighter colors.

5. Fringed leather jacket
Oh my word, the weather was biblical yesterday 🌧 💨😫. Suffice to say, I had to layer my coats (swipe to see) whilst I cracked on with building my ark. You’re all welcome aboard, naturally! ⛴⚓️ 🌊 . . .

A fringed leather jacket is the perfect cowgirl-meets-the-city look in the coolest way possible. Pair it with your favorite concert tee for a rockstar vibe.

The best way to make leather even edgier than it already is is by adding some studs into the mix. You can choose to go all out or keep them to a minimum—even just a few will make your leather jacket pop.

7. Leather puffer coat

Puffer coats always keep us feeling extra warm and looking extra cozy, so naturally, leather puffers are one of our favorite iterations of the classic leather jacket. This is a more casual piece, so grab your favorite sneakers and take your puffer on an adventure.

8. Long leather coat

Make sure to keep yourself warm these coming months! Pair a long leather coat with a maxi dress in the fall and then throw on your favorite turtleneck and pant duo in the winter for some major retro vibes.

9. Leather shirt
I picked up this leather shirt and plaid pants at the @joie @equipmentfr, and @currentelliott sample sale happening on the upper east side at @260samplesale. Shop from today until December 15th at 2151 Broadway. It’s the perfect place to start your holiday shopping and get a little something for yourself, too :)

Swap out your everyday shirts for statement leather shirts instead. Pair them with jeans for a casual look or throw on other trendy prints, like cheetah and plaid, to take your look to the next level.
