8 Smooth Like Butter Leather Jackets

8 Smooth Like Butter Leather Jackets

After reviewing my post on leather jackets from last year, I realized that every single one still holds up — I’d wear them all! What a testament to the staying power of this classic item.

So while it may be your investment purchase of the season, it’s well worth the splurge if it becomes your go-to for years to come.

In honor of Fall, when the weather in NYC is something to brag about (and probably the only time we get to do this!)
Here are 8 Like Butter, Leather Jackets To Try Today

If we’re talking classic items, then the moto jacket needs a mention. Back in the 80s, my brother had one with the punk band GBH emblazoned across the back that I used to steal whenever I could. This one kind of reminds me of that blast from the past though it’s a little more streamlined which slightly softens the rough edge. Oh, a hoodie layered underneath is always a good solution when the weather adds more of a chill.

Still with the classic moto, which is everywhere this year, I like the broken-in look of this one along with the simplicity of the easy silhouette. I see this going with everything.

To off-set basic black, how about going green? as seen in this one. It could be a great way for the color shy to move away from all black all the time.

The perforated finish on this one adds a nice touch to the bomber cut. It looks cute with the romper as shown (and would be fine in an LA-like climate), but I’d pair it with cream culottes and a thin sweater for the transition weather of today.

I actually have a Lucky Brand leather from about 5 years ago, and I just wore it yesterday. It’s made of lambskin which really does feel like butter. The blazer shape on this one has versatility — pair it with jeans and a graphic tee like above, or try a midi skirt and button up blouse.

This one has so many rights going on — the cool cognac, the throw-it-on-with-all design, and the fantastic price tag for real leather!

I’m kind of a tomboy so whenever there’s a sporty side to something, I’m all for it. The two-toned coloring adds extra interest on this one, while the bomber style was still going strong on the runways. Oh, it’s also on major markdown — so that, of course, will always appeal.

The color. The detail. The genuine broken-in leather on this one. Yes, Please! (Super bummed to notice it’s no longer available.)

How long ago did you get your leather jacket and how often do you wear it?
