Minerva Leather Anorak Jacket
Lafayette 148 New York Bloomingdales

Teagan Reversible Drape Front Jacket
BB Dakota Nordstrom

At first glance, this reversible faux leather BB Dakota pick doesn't look like a traditional leather jacket, which is exactly the point. The draped lapels add a softer look for the office or dinner with friends when you don't want to be the center of attention (yes, a great leather jacket does that).
