A leather jacket is one of the most versatile items of clothing you can own. It’s the perfect level of warmth for slightly chilly fall weather; it can take you from day to night with ease; and it plays equally well with knitwear, a simple white T-shirt and jeans, or a slip dress. Depending on the cut and detailing, it can read sophisticated chic, retro punk or borrowed-from-the-boys cool. This season’s standout takes on the timeless style range from ’90s minimalist pieces to sturdy overcoats to western-inspired fringe—all in luxe materials, from soft calfskin to sturdy vegan leather.
