Leather jackets: Shop the Marie Claire edit

When it comes to wardrobe staples it doesn't get much cooler than a leather jacket. Shop the best new season buys, here...

Nothing will ease you into warmer climates like a leather jacket. A classic piece of clothing built for wearability and durability, these are jackets to buy now and wear forever. Look to Saint Laurent for standout leather pieces and Acne for cool buzz buys that will never go out of style.

As always, Topshop offers a reliable favourite for all of your cool cover-up needs (their paint-splashed version is a wardrobe winner), while longline versions from French Connection and Alexander McQueen are an edgier alternative to the classic version.

Elsewhere, Stella McCartney offers a letter-box red style to enliven dull days spent in the office and Mango’s bright blue option can be worn right through the summer, too. Wear with satin-spun shirts, tiny delicate necklaces or cropped leather trousers if you dare. Whether it’s a biker, bomber or purposefully oversized in shape, a leather jacket will brighten even the darkest days (promising to keep you both dry and warm).

Clever, no-fuss jackets are the ones to buy now. As seen on the catwalks in clean and cropped styles, as well as stand-out embellished versions, it seems that there are plenty of ways to wear this iconic style this season.
