Ever since James Dean rocked a leather jacket, they have been considered the epitome of cool. They project an uncaring confidence that gives off that, “I woke up like this!” vibe we are all striving for. Luckily, times have changed and even rebels with a cause can wear leather. Women, in particular, are embracing this women leather jacket trend in many different styles.
Without breaking the bank, you, too, can rock this super-cool look this season. Here are our favorite styles as pulled together by Glitter Guide contributor, Kaleigh Glaza. The best news of all? None of them costs more than $200!
