Like peanut butter and jelly, cooler temps and vegan leather jackets go together like not much else. Though far from a crime to wear the punky number year-round (I definitely do), transitional weather calls for a jacket that’s versatile enough to protect you against the evening chill, but is still light enough to tie around your waist when the sun decides to make a fashionably late appearance. That said, genuine leather jackets can be price-y and not particularly sustainable.
Luckily, in the past few years, brands have created vegan leather jackets that look just as classic, stylish, and timeless as their genuine leather counterparts. They're also less expensive, are just as durable, and look exceptionally real. Scroll down to shop the best vegan leather jackets that don’t look or feel plastic-y, are kinder to the planet, and that we will be wearing all season (and year) long.
