The (unexpected) budget style favorite
I have always loved a good biker jacket. In my opinion, a structured jacket can elevate almost any outfit. So when I started seeing these fur-lined suede/leather jackets, I was immediately intrigued. There are a bunch of high end options out there (here, here, and here). However, when it comes to trendy pieces, I like to try out the more affordable options first.
I ordered two versions of the jacket: one from TopShop and one from H&M. Both are made of faux suede and faux fur-lined. But surprisingly, neither look cheap or tacky. I found the TopShop one to be a little bit too oversized and bulky for my taste, so that one definitely went back.
I have to say that I was so surprised at how much use I got out of the H&M jacket. It was definitely a fall/winter staple (especially during the uncharacteristically warm winter weather we've been having in NYC) and paired with everything - black skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans, dresses & tights, etc... For being a faux-fur jacket, it was surprisingly warm too. Best of all? It only cost me $69.99! It's on sale now (though a lot of sizes are sold out) - so if you can find it in the stores, go ahead and give it a try. Highly recommend.
If you're looking to dabble in the trend as well, here are some more options:
