The woman leather jacket is one of the favorite French girl staples to achieve an effortlessly chic look. As a French woman, I can tell that my friends and I are always speaking about our leather biker jacket, also called “Perfecto”! We are always looking for a Saint Laurent, Givenchy inspired leather jackets. See below a selection of stylish and premium buttery leather jackets.
Where to shop affordable premium woman leather jacket
Although it is very stylish, the designer leather biker jacket is (very) expensive as it uses premium leather: lambskin. Indeed, lambskin is the softest type of leather. I was on the hunt for a new affordable leather jacket, but I didn’t want to compromise on style and quality. After different trials, I found the perfect fitted motorbike leather jacket at All Saints, and Sezane. For a It-Girl style, I will go with the Ashville Iro jacket or Anine Bing jacket.
I love All Saints biker jackets. They have different designs and leather types. I will go for sheepskin or lambskin leather biker jackets as they are very soft and buttery.
My favorite biker jacket is the Balfern (in sheepskin), and the cut is a little cropped. All Saints also introduces new colors and styles every season.
If you are a fan of Saint Laurent / Acne / Iro leather moto jacket (prices are between $4500 to $1200), go for the All Saints Balfern jacket because it is a little bit cropped.

I love the Sezane Zig leather jacket. This jacket is a Parisian staple. I saw many girls wearing it in Paris, New York, and Los Angeles, and each time I loved how it looks! Sezane doesn’t use chrome for tanning its leather jackets, which is more sustainable.

All Saints Dalby Leather Jacket
The black leather biker jacket is a year-round statement piece, the perfect it-girl jacket to go with any outfit:
- Casual look: Wear it with ankle boots and jeans.
- Night-out 1: Go for ankle boots and a skirt or short dress.
- Night-out 2: Go for a jumpsuit and stilettos.
- Polished: Wear it with a white shirt and cigarette pants.
- Model off-duty look: Wear it with a white shirt, jeans, and white sneakers.
- Party: wear it with a 90’s slip dress. (See here for slip dress ideas)
Concerning the size: I usually take a XS, which is my regular size for a jacket. Also, it is trendier to wear your leather jacket opened (do not zip it).
