A black leather jacket is something you only have to buy once—that is, if you get it right. Every fashion lover knows that a leather jacket is the gift that keeps on giving. It can switch up the vibe of any outfit in a flash, making the simplest looks seem oh-so-chic and turning a sundress into an edgy statement, because it’s always helpful to have a light layer handy when the sun goes down and the temps drop. With so many options out there, finding your leather-clad soulmate is easier said than done.

To help you out, we did the heavy lifting and found 21 perfect black leather jackets that meet all your outerwear needs. Ahead you’ll find everything from on-trend silhouettes to an under-$50 style, and of course, Acne Studios’s iconic moto (AKA every fashion editor’s wardrobe holy grail). You might not wear your leather jacket everyday, but rest assured that you’ll have it for life. Here, find our favorite picks.

The Tried-and-True

Faux Leather Belted Motorcycle Jacket

This classic moto is a fan favorite. For evidence, see its over 2,500 rave reviews.

Varsity Rules

Lightweight Leather Jacket

Channel your inner Sporty Spice with this athletic-inspired jacket from Coach.

The Shacket

Gabby Shirt Jacket

Think of the overshirt as the ideal layer for unpredictable weather. It’s lighter than your average leather jacket and takes inspiration from men’s oversized shirts.

The Trench

Natalia Leather-Look Trench Coat

For a little more heft, try a longline leather coat. With buckle cuff details and a removable belt, this style by Apparis is more ’70s than The Matrix, but we support both aesthetics.

The ’90s Blazer

Shiny Croc-Effect Faux-Leather Blazer

Steal Monica Geller’s style and invest in a leather blazer. The ’90s staple is making a swift comeback, so hop on the trend with this croc-patterned coat before everyone else does.

Vested Interest

Classic Leather Vest with Side Lace

Ruja Sports

Rethink the western trend with a leather vest. We suggest styling it with a billowy white blouse and a denim mini skirt. It’s almost too stylish, if such a thing existed.

A Studded Staple

Beaded Leather Jacket

With studded embellishments, this jacket is the snazzy alternative to classic black leather.

The Classic Moto

Ultimate Leather Motorcycle Jacket

This should be one of your top contenders if you’re looking to invest in a forever jacket. The classic cut is made of thick leather that will wear beautifully over time.

The Anti-Moto

Women’s Faux Leather Dad Bomber Jacket

Not everyone is down with the biker jacket. Maybe this bomber by Levi’s is more your speed.


Embossed GG Leather Jacket

A sartorial gem worth rearranging your monthly budget for.

Power Puffer

Vigoss Faux Leather Puffer Jacket

A.V. Denim

Keep it comfy with this modern take on the puffer silhouette.

American Idol

Lightweight Cowhide Cafe Racer Jacket

Schott has been making leather goods for over 100 years, and its jackets basically defined the industry standard. The Perfecto style is historic, but we love the pared back cut of the brand’s Cafe Racer, too.

Industry Icon

Mock Core Leather Moto Jacket

Acne Studios

For fashion insiders, an Acne leather jacket is the holy grail. Its core moto comes with a big-ticket price, but rarely does one regret making the splurge. It’s a lifer.

The Showstopper

Faux Fur-Trimmed Jacket

Tired of the same old leather styles? This feathered version is unlike any other.

The Cold-Weather Pick

Shearling-Lined Leather Jacket

Take flight with this weighty option, reminiscent of aviator jackets. The timeless cut is lined with cozy shearling, making it perfect for winter days.


Women’s Faux Leather Jacket

Universal Thread

Not only is this versatile jacket affordable, but it’s also available in both standard and plus size ranges.

Keep It Casual

Leather Jean Jacket

Marc New York

The same beloved cut as a denim jacket but with the upscale sleekness of leather? Yes, please.

Cute & Cropped

Cropped Double Front Pocket Leather Jacket

Ideal for pairing with high-waisted jeans and mini skirts alike. (Or for petite folk who look like they’re swimming in oversized styles.)

Wardrobe Hero

Vintage Leather Jacket

Urban Renewal

Simple, timeless, and versatile. You’ll find yourself reaching for this staple time and time again.

Worth the Splurge

Cropped Leather Jacket

Club Monaco

A high-quality leather jacket is one of those last-a-lifetime pieces worth splurging on.

Fabulously Fitted

This tailored collarless silhouette is decidedly more feminine than your average biker style.
