A Leather Blazer Is My Fall Fashion Best Friend—These 17 Are the Best

If there's one clothing item in my closet that gets the most wear during the colder weather, it has to be my leather blazer. I could be wearing any outfit, and no matter how bizarrely different the pieces are from another, somehow the blazer will make it look instantly better. I've thrown it over sweatsuits, dresses, jeans, the whole lot. There's plenty about the item that makes it a "cool" staple, from the sheen of the leather to the oversize fit the majority of them come with. While many of them come at a higher price point, I promise you it's a splurge worth making. While a leather jacket has a type of classic superiority that is difficult to replace, the leather blazer might be coming in as a close runner-up.

I already have my trusted leather blazer, but I am here to help you if you're still searching for one to add to your closet this season. I also gathered a slew of outfit inspiration so you can get the hype of why the piece has quickly become everyone's favorite pick for laid-back outerwear. Below, you'll find the 17 best options on the internet right now along with a variety of ways you can wear it once you get yours.

Yusra Siddiqui is an editor who resides in New Jersey but bounces between the suburbs and NYC. (She's a Jersey girl at heart.) After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
