I know we’re technically in spring, and this probably isn’t the right season to talk about leather jackets, but I believe a good leather jacket can be worn all year round. I love seeing leather jackets worn over girly summer dresses on cooler days, or at nighttime when it the temperature drops a little. (Or if you’re like me and work full-time in an air-conditioned office, you can wear one all day long!)

That being said, these are my top 3 leather jackets in 3 different price ranges (with some honorable mentions, too).

1. Splurge: Madewell Perfect Leather Motorcycle Jacket

If you’re looking to invest a *real* leather jacket, this jacket is at a great price point. High quality leather and a really minimalist style that will go with everything in your closet. As a part-time Madewell associate, I’ve seen all kinds of people try on this jacket, and it looks good every single time.

Also splurge-worthy: Free People Classic Biker Jacket // LaMarque ‘Maya’ Convertible Leather Jacket // Halogen Leather Moto Jacket // Esprit Leather Biker Jacket

2. Spend: Free People Distressed Faux Leather Moto Jacket

The distressed quality of this vegan leather jacket makes it look very vintage and worn. I love how Free People styles leather jackets with their long bohemian dresses.

Honorable mentions: Research & Design Faux Leather Motorcycle Jacket // Urban Outfitters Pebbled Vegan Leather Moto Jacket // Free People Vegan Leather Hooded Motorcycle Jacket

3. Save: H&M Biker Jacket

A really cool style for the price. Can’t beat under $50 for this jacket.

Also save-worthy: Topshop Mirabelle Faux Leather Biker Jacket // Zara Faux Leather Jacket // Nasty Gal Moto Zip Crop Jacket // Celebrity Pink Quilted Moto Jacket
