Finding the perfect black leather jacket can be a lifelong pursuit. There are jackets meant to be worn on the back of a motorcycle, thrift store finds covered in safety pins for mosh pit–loving punks, and last but not least, sharp leather blazers in red and camel tones for business men and women. This spring, consider the latter sort of unexpected, anti-moto jacket for a fresh update on the typically rock ’n’ roll piece.
In the past few months of street style, we have seen cool girls around the world wearing fabulously different versions: There were belted coats in New York that look ever so slightly like robes, unbuttoned and capped sleeve iterations in Paris, and black leather suit jackets in Tbilisi, Georgia. This deeply chic way to wear leather is a strong, structured, and more polished tack that works as well for the office as it does a night out.
Here, shop the best of the lot.
