A Leather Jacket Is the One Staple You’ll Pack for Every Fall Trip — Here Are the 9 Best Styles for Women
Some are even made with vegan leather!
This is the season when packing begins to get complicated as cooler weather means cramming more layers, heavier knits, and outerwear into your carry-ons. The ultimate travel hack – and the ultimate challenge for some – is to pack only one jacket. The perfect fall jacket for travel should be light, comfortable, and easily transitioned from day-to-night.
That’s why a leather jacket is the one staple you’ll need for every trip. It’s lightweight, can be dressed up or down and comes in a variety of styles – fusing both functionality and style. From classic styles like moto jackets, bombers, and trenches, to trendier silhouettes like puffers and fringe, there’s a leather jacket for all of your sartorial needs.
Some brands, like Nanushka and Ganni, even have vegan leather styles to choose from (and they look and feel just like the real thing!) Other brands, like Choiss, are focused on sustainability, using 100% certified leather that follows protocols that require traceability, animal well-being, and strict environmental regulations and inspections.
Below, we’ve rounded up the 10 best leather jackets for every fall trip.
