There are few things higher up on everyone's fall lust list than a good sexy, practical, luscious leather jacket (or faux for all you vegans). No question, we're obsessed. And if you weren't able to dig up your old black motorcycle jacket you couldn't stop wearing five years ago (we misplaced ours, too): You're in luck. Because we've scoured our top sites to scoop up the best variations of this autumn's ultimate must-have, and not just in one style: We've assembled four categories, from shearling accents to leather impostors. Read on to find your leather love of the moment.
1. Tough-Girl Leather: From denim-inspired cuts to classic moto details, these motorcycle'esque jackets are cool—and hot—enough to rev up the bad girl in each of us.
2. Faux Leather: This is for all you ladies who love the look of leather but prefer to keep your paws off the real thing. But given the sharp shapes and styles we've found, faking it this fall looks pretty darn good.
3. Dressed-Up Leather: Sometimes leather needs to express itself in a dressier way (say, over a party dress). And these pieces really reveal that luxurious feeling of a good leather piece that you'll have and wear forever.
4. Shearling/Winter Leather: Some of us want our leather jacket to practically keep us toasty when the temps drop, and these styles embody the shearling accents and themes that made Burberry's fall/winter collection a phenomenon.
