If your style has taken some wrong turns over the years, there is very little chance a leather jacket was involved. More likely it was a pair of adventurous pants, or the sneakers everyone was lining up for. Something you didn’t need but was lured to buy for one reason or another. Leather jackets don’t need to convince you to buy them, and they almost always improve your style by one billion percent (source). That’s especially true when the jacket is actually suede, leather’s less shiny side, and when it’s cut in one of these six styles, none of which look like they came from dad’s closet. Unless your dad is of the Ryan Reynolds variety in which case, yes, these will make you look like a chip off the old block. Scroll down, suede up, never look back.
