When the temperature gets lower, our edge gets higher, and nothing screams "cool" like a timeless leather jacket. It's one of those items that you can dress up or down, and since it's such a classic piece, there are hundreds of reinvented versions of it, such as studded leather jackets or leather trench coats. Honestly, it's the closet staple that never goes out of style.

Because of that, we're constantly looking for new leather jacket outfit ideas so that we can get the most out of our pieces. From the classic leather blazer look to a trendy leather puffer coat situation, here are some photo inspirations to take you through the fall and winter.
