A classic leather jacket is one of those timeless closet staples that will carry you through the seasons for years to come. Fortunately, whether you're vegan or just prefer to shop on a budget, there are faux-leather jackets that are every bit as stylish and durable as their real leather counterparts. The best vegan-leather jackets come in tons of different styles, so it'll be easy for you to find one that suits your preferred aesthetic.

Start by considering the silhouette. For example, do you prefer classic, moto-chic jackets? Long, belted trench coats? Or maybe you’re looking for something warmer, like a parka trimmed with faux fur. On this list, you'll also find vegan-leather jackets with faux-suede linings, sweatshirt-style hoods, fuzzy fleece trims, and lots of other, unique features.

Then, there's the textile itself. While most faux leather is made of polyurethane (abbreviated PU), you can find faux-leather jackets with pebbled, snake-embossed, or quilted textures, to name just a few.

Whether made of the real thing or a vegan alternative, leather jackets are prized for their endless versatility and effortlessly cool vibe, which is why it's worth stocking your closet with more than just one. To shop some of the best faux-leather jackets you can buy on Amazon, just keep scrolling.
