Popularized by the bad boys like Danny in “Grease” and James Dean in “Rebel Without A Cause,” the leather jacket has become an icon as well as a wardrobe staple. And while there’s a very good argument for investing in a great quality jacket that you can wear for years to come, you can find me walking down Locust in my Urban Outfitters pleather (almost) year-round. Because leather is so expensive, and trends so fickle, I’ve found that it’s more worth it to buy cheap. Here are some deals I’ve found on cute pleather jackets:
-If you’re daring to try winter white, this jacket will take you into Spring as well. Urban Outfitters, $98.
-A trendy biker style from Topshop, $95.
-A classic bomber style from Urban, $128.
-A BCBG option via Bluefly with convertible sleeves, $179
