Every single men or women would look sexy in a leather jacket. But the quality of these jackets is a big investment to make into; which would give you a long living leather jacket. Hence invest in a quality piece, and take care of it; and you’ll find it will serve you well for years to come.
7 Sexy Women’s Leather Jackets To Slay –
From Sandy’s bad girl makeover in Grease to Rooney Mara’s Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, there is no garment as closely linked with rebellion as a leather jacket. That association gives it instant cool, whether it’s studded with hardware or sleek and understated.
They come in all colors, but the majority in this list are black, not only because it’s the classic biker color, but also because a leather jacket is an investment piece that should effortlessly slot into your wardrobe.
A good leather jacket should improve with age, almost molding to your silhouette as it becomes softer and increasingly battered, so it’s important to consider how it will look in five, or perhaps ten years’ time.
#1 Belstaff mollison jacket in wild aster nappa leather: £795, Belstaff
You can’t even think about leather jackets without considering Belstaff, the original maker of motorcycle performance wear, now refashioned for a modern consumer. This jacket has a sixties-style collar with quilted shoulders and zipped side pockets. It comes in black, but we especially love the expensive-looking cream version.
#2 Rick Owens clean biker jacket: £1,050, Stylebop
There are many imitators of Rick Owens’ famous jackets, but only one original. The ultra-fitted cut is made comfortable by stretchy cotton panels in the arms, while the funnel neck and side zip become a waterfall collar when unzipped. It’s expensive but a modern classic that will last a lifetime.

#3 Reiss tay leather biker jacker: £375, Reiss
This one was really flattering and we liked the quilted detail at the sleeves and asymmetric zip. Belts can feel a bit cumbersome on a leather jacket, so the buckles towards the back of the hem are a nice nod to the look without adding extra bulk.
#4 Frame schoolboy leather blazer: £962, Frame
For a smarter take on the leather jacket, try a blazer. The overall look is more formal – you might even be able to wear it to work, dress codes permitting – but it still offers plenty of rebellious edge. We’d team it with knitwear and jeans in the winter, and plain tees or sundresses in summer.
#5 Leather snake print western jacket: £195, Topshop
If you’re not channelling the nineties, are you even into in fashion? Topshop has gone deep into the decade that brought us Friends and the Spice Girls, and the result is a slew of styles that couldn’t look more current. This snake-print version (also a major 2019 trend) is a case in point: cropped, boxy, lightweight and more versatile than you’d expect.
