This past Thursday, I strolled past Mango minding my own business when this faux leather jacket caught my eye. Without hesitation, I walked in for the 4-1-1 on the jacket in question. The quilted appliqué leather jacket was a perfect steal at $60. It looks like it’s “real” counterpart in detail and fit, for a whole lot less. I fell in love! They were almost sold out in the store, but when I got home I found the jacket online in all sizes! Happy girl! I bought a Medium and Large since I’m not exactly sure how I want the fit to be. (This is a good tip if you’re ever in between sizes. Buy 2 sizes and then return the one that doesn’t work. Fool proof!
I shared my initial exiting find on Instagram but I thought it would be even more awesome if I found some other fabulous faux options for you! Below are 8 others that I love. We are deep in leather jacket weather (that pesky in between period) before it gets cold enough for coat season!
STYLING TIP: Leather jackets are an essential wardrobe staple. Pair them with a cozy cable knit sweater, like I did above (this one’s also from Mango, for only $40), dress it up for nighttime with an LBD, pretty much anything goes! Click the links to purchase.
