Unfortunately, the tried-and-true piece has been replicated by so many brands that sometimes we find ourselves yawning over the closet staple. Don't they all just look the same? DO NOT give up.

Not into the standard black? Colored leather (faux and real) is trending NOW. Ahead, you'll find ten options that are guaranteed to stand out in a sea of plain black leather jackets.
