The best vegan leather jackets
Bagatelle Draped Faux Leather Jacket — $99.00
If you’re like me and have a few closet pieces that are set aside purely for “I need a brunch outfit and I need it five minutes ago” wear, this draped faux leather jacket is perfect for you. Chuck it over a romper, pair it with jeans and a tank, wear it under a larger jacket for an extra layer, or roll right out of bed in leggings and use the color to hide the hangover—this jacket is as versatile as it gets.
Banana Republic Vegan Suede Moto Jacket — $96.00
Originally $160, now $96
Not to be left out, this vegan suede jacket is still kinder to the environment than its non-imitation alternatives and features the same moto structure as many other leather options, but this time in a new, unique, fall shade.
ASTR the Label Rubia Faux Leather Moto Jacket — $178.00
If you’re looking for a brand that perfectly bridges the line between fast fashion and price-y designers, ASTR the Label has got you covered. This fall staple is stylish, doesn’t feel plastic-y or cheap, and it’s also versatile, and sustainable.
Express Faux Leather Puffer Jacket — $178.00
As winter peeks around the corner, this puffer is going to be on every holiday wish list—you heard it here first. The leather look makes it chicer than your classic nylon or polyester shell, the cream/white shade is easy to match with anything and everything, and the insulation will be your cold weather knight in padded armor.
BLANK NYC Black Long Moto Jacket — $128.00
When I say this jacket is the “star of the show,” I mean it literally. I mean…it’s covered in them. This long, oversized, patterned moto jacket is perfect for the later fall months when you need to be able to wear a sweater and a few other layers under your jacket, but it’s not yet coat weather.
While leather or leather-look-alike jackets reign supreme when it comes to cool, versatile, and forever on trend wardrobe staples, when it comes to picking the right faux leather jacket for you, you have to ask yourself the same questions you would with most things that you put on your body. Do you prefer the classic, James Dean style, lapel or something along the lines of Bella Hadid’s famous moto? Do you want something with a bit of padding to keep you warm or a shacket that you can toss in your purse to dress up a daytime look for dinner? Do you like a long, trench-like silhouette or something with less sheen like a suede? Print or plain? Regardless of what style you’re looking for, how much you’re hoping to spend, and what color catches your eye, we’ve scoured the internet to find a hefty collection of the best vegan leather jackets out there.
