Five Best Leather and Leather-Look Jackets

If you want to look as if you’ve just sprung straight from the catwalks this season, you need a leather jacket in your wardrobe. You can fake it if you want, but you can’t miss out on the perfect finishing touch to the layered looks that are everywhere this spring. Add a little fight to floaty layers with a boxy leather, or team sharp tailoring with soft, sumptuous leather that will make you feel as good as you look. Take a peek at some of the options available to ensure your jacket is leading the pack in the fashion line-up right now.


If you don’t want to splash out too much, faux leather is the ideal option. The sky blue colour of the Noisy May Pastel Faux Leather Jacket is an ideal choice for spring and makes a refreshing change from the usual black. Its cropped cut is flattering and stylish and bang up to date. This is a jacket that can be a constant companion throughout the season, and with a price tag of less than £60, it certainly won’t break the bank. If you want a more traditional leather look, you can pick up a Faux Leather Biker Jacket in black from Topshop for just over £50. Toughen up some spring florals or add oomph to a pair of plain jeans. No one’s going to argue with your fashion sense.


If you want to spend a little more, there’s nothing that feels as good as real leather. For just under £250, you can enjoy true quality in a Selected Femme Leather Jacket from John Lewis, or go for something more vibrant with a Muubaa Orinoco Cropped Leather Jacket – less than £190 from Asos. If you really want to make a statement this spring, you can’t go wrong with a Red Valentino Black Cropped Leather Jacket, as long as you have just over £1,000 to spare.
