Faux Leather Jacket Round Up for Under $100

A good friend of mine, whom I don't see often, met up with me the other day and she was wearing the cutest (what I thought was leather) jacket. She asked me if I recognized it, which I didn't, and then told me that she found the site off of D&OC and subsequently bought the jacket. That site is Spool 72, blogged about here. Now, normally, I wouldn't run off to buy something that my friend already owns, but seeing as how we living in different parts of GA, I figured she wouldn't mind, plus I LOVED the jacket. It was slim fitting, soft, and looked fantastic on her.
This experience got me thinking about faux leather jackets and how they've gotten increasingly stylish and remain really affordable. Now, don't get me wrong- I adore leather, but I'm not ready to commit to a leather jacket until I find the exact style, shape and color I"m willing to invest in.
I've rounded up some of my favorite vegan friendly, faux leather options all for under $100!

It's cropped and it's a sassy red color. Perfect.

This oversized collar adds a little something extra and the burnt caramel color is very pretty.

So whether you're vegan, or just looking for an alternative, affordable option to leather, there are a plethora of great jackets that won't burn a hole in your pocket.
What do you think about these faux leather options?

I'm curious how the jacket you bought works out for you. It looks like it will look great. Sometimes it's hard to judge what something will actually look like when you get it.

That red one is awesome. I got a cropped, black faux leather jacket last year from the junior's department at Macy's. I named it Biker Jackson.

I should do this more often- buy faux leather and not real leather, haha. I'm a bad vegan!

These are adorable, choices and look legit, too.
