    I love a good leather jacket. I bought a fake leather jacket as a trial to see if I’d wear it enough to warrant spending money on a real leather jacket. Several years later, I’m still wearing the fake one – the Minus the Leather line from Express. It looks great and makes me feel extremely cool and confident.

    I have snagged two black leather jackets from ThredUp. The ones I always wanted were way out of my price range and this allowed me to get a Rag & Bone ribbed cuff jacket and a Joie moto jacket for a fraction of the original cost. It took me a while, but getting high-quality leather in two great designs was worth it!

    I’ve been eyeing leather jackets for awhile. I’m planning to go for it once I land a job and start collecting regular paychecks again.

    Can you do a follow up post on styling leather jackets? Maybe add bomber jackets in too? Every time I’ve tried to style one I’ve thought it looked odd.

    Leather jackets always make me wish I lived in a cooler climate. I love how bad ass they look. I can’t remember the last time it was cool enough to wear a jacket 🙁

    For a plus-size, high quality leather jacket, I recommend The fit and quality is amazing. They also make a vegan option. Expensive, but after getting lousy, cheap quality jackets, I really appreciate it, especially since you don’t really see a good quality leather jacket in plus size.
