Street Style Stars and Supermodels Agree: The Only Jacket You Need This Fall Is a Leather Blazer


Among the plethora of suiting sported by the street style crew at Stockholm Fashion Week, one standout was the leather blazer. It’s a staple when it comes to fall dressing—however it may be time to consider one in a tailored silhouette this year. The blazer can act as both a suit separate and an overcoat, and looks just as good with a pair of shorts and midcalf boots as it does for a casual outing in a pair of slouchy trousers, a white tee, and sneakers for easy fall days. It seems as though a few of America’s supermodels would agree. Emily Ratajkowski recently layered a neon hoodie under an oversized leather blazer, with a pair of outdoor slippers from Ugg, while Kaia Gerber effortlessly put her leather blazer look together with the help of two additional fall staples—boot-cut blue jeans and a pair of flat black booties. Earlier this summer Kendall Jenner took one for a spin in Los Angeles with a pair of stretchy black trousers, ’90s-era mules, and a black tank top.

And while blazers are often considered a polished office-wardrobe essential, these It girls are proving that a leather iteration is surprisingly versatile, casual, and affordable thanks to this assortment of faux leather options. Dress one up for an outdoor dining date, throw one on for a quick trip to the corner store, or wear one for pretty much anything in between.
