It’s hard to think about fall while temperatures are still in the 80s and 90s but before you know it the seasons will change. Now is the perfect time to start creating an inventory of key pieces you need.

One item you’ll most certainly want to have is a leather jacket; a definite must have!! If you don’t have one, I’d recommend purchasing a black one first. It’s a neutral, goes with everything and will never go out of style.

Leather jackets are great for when the weather is transitioning from summer to fall and can be worn with literally everything! They can add sophisticated edginess to classic, tailored looks or you can wear them with your favorite boyfriend jeans on a casual day.  You can transition your summer dresses to fall by wearing them with a leather jacket, scarf and booties.

Check out the looks below for inspiration on how to wear a leather jacket this fall. I’ve also included suggestions on where to purchase one. There are a plethora of jackets available in a range of price points.  I know some may be discouraged by the idea of paying more than $150 for a leather jacket, however if you’re going to purchase real leather, it’s worth it.  You’ll wear a leather jacket more than you think, meaning your cost per wear will be zero!

Another great resource to find a leather jacket at a deep discounted price is a local thrift or consignment shop.
