There are certain staples in everyone’s fall wardrobe. A turtleneck or two (or three, or four, or five…), dark-wash jeans, combat boots. You get the idea. And there’s one must-have that transcends all trends: a leather jacket. Sure, the leather jacket experienced some stellar edits this past runway season, but we’re still partial to the classic black silhouette. It can dress up a tee and jeans combo or dress down an evening gown. And you can wear it until the hot summer weather rolls around. Leather jackets can sometimes feel out of reach thanks to their notoriously high price tags. But we managed to track down some truly affordable ones in both the real leather and faux leather categories.
