Are the transitional weather fashion gods trying to tell me something?? For the last few months, my Instagram feed and Explore Page have been overwhelmed by influencers rocking the leather blazer trend—and after liking a few photos too many, I’ve finally given in. I’m ready to buy one! If you’re on the fence, consider this a sign that you need one, too.

When it comes to creating the perfect wardrobe in 2021, transitional weather outerwear pieces are a must. When it’s still too warm for a heavy sweater and coat but your jean jacket isn’t doing enough to keep you warm (not to mention the fact that it’s high-key ruining your outfit), the leather blazer is here to save the day. Or, should I say the faux leather blazer, as we are both 1. On a budget and 2. Lovers of animals.

Unlike most jackets in your closet, the leather blazer can be dressed up or down, making it especially versatile. You can style it for a nighttime event over a satin slip dress and boots or pair it with boyfriend jeans and a white tee for a look that’s more laid-back. Grab your leather blazer for a romcom-esque closet-raiding movie montage and just see how many cute looks you can put together.

Depending on the look you like, it might take some trial and error to find the perfect leather blazer for you. I’ve rounded up the options I’ve been eyeing below, which range from more fitted silhouettes to slightly oversized boyfriend styles, all under $200 bucks.

Who knows, your perfect blazer could be on this list, too! I’ll be liking your OOTD post on Instagram in no time.
