A good leather jacket is the ultimate wardrobe staple, but sometimes a girl has to fake it.
Shop this edit of faux leather styles - inspired by the Autumn/Winter 2014 catwalks - available on the high street.
Ideally you want a faux leather (pleather) jacket that will work over anything and look just as good as the real thing. And like the genuine styles - the more worn in they look the better, so buying now is key.
Black biker styles (cropped with sharp collars and zip detailing) are a fail-proof option, but how about buying a coloured version? Blue is a huge A/W colour trend, as are 1960s-inspired tan, brown and mustard yellow.
Embroidery and embellishment will set yours apart from the rest too - the black contrast jacket above with raspberry-red faux fur collar? Seriously standout and yours for £65 from River Island, think affordable statement luxe.
If you want something classic black then the choice is endless - mix up your look by buying something textured or collarless or hooded.
The quilted bomber jacket style above is by Versace Jeans so it's a little pricier than your average faux (£395), that said, it's the one sitting at the top of out A/W 2014 wish list.
Take a flick through this gallery to see all the styles in out shopping edit.
