We all have that thing, the go-to item we can't seem to get dressed without. And for many of us, it's the staple leather jacket. It truly is the perfect layering piece, and can be dressed down with your favorite basic T-shirt, or gussied up and worn over your signature fall dress. There's a style out there for everyone.

Now, let's talk dollars. You can invest in a pricey jacket that will last for years — the more it ages, the cooler it looks. Or, you can go the faux variety, which is easier on the wallet but can look every bit as chic. Just make sure you pay attention to fit. You don't want anything too loose or boxy, or so tight you can't zip it up.
