Winter’s go-to puffer coats might be practical for bundling up, but — let’s be honest — the stuffy garments tend to lack shape and style. That’s likely why more and more celebrities are stepping out in a sleeker (but equally warm!) alternative: leather trench coats.
To kick off the new year, Hailey Bieber upgraded an otherwise very casual outfit of a sports bra and flared leggings with a longline open leather trench. In a recent visit to New York City, Shania Twain complemented her new pink hair with the edgy outerwear, paired with a black turtleneck and knee-high boots. Miranda Kerr went for a softer vibe with a deep brown leather trench, which she wore over a mini skirt, tights, and a black turtleneck to W Magazine’s awards season dinner in Beverly Hills.

And that’s not where the trench trend ends. Other celebs including Lori Harvey, Kylie Jennerand more have topped off their looks with the classic layering piece, some opting for different shades or styles with embellishments like faux fur or a timeless waist tie, proving that options extend beyond a basic black jacket.
We know what you’re thinking, though: Full-length leather, or even pleather, is often inherently pricey. And A-listers are more than likely wearing designer labels. But rest assured that you can achieve a similar look without shelling out your savings for a single garment, and you won’t have to sacrifice quality either.
Take the Ebossy long pleather trench coatfor example. Amazon shoppers say it looks way more expensive than its $70 price tag. One reviewer said it “looks and feels like leather.” Another said they “love the weight” and that it “doesn’t feel flimsy.”

If you prefer a mid-thigh length over one that’s floor-grazing, the Tanming faux leather jacket is a good choice. At $76, it will effortlessly dress up any outfit, or give your business casual looks a bit of an edge. One reviewer said the fabric has “a substantial feel and looks great,” however, many noted that it runs small, so if you plan to layer chunky knits underneath, it may be a good idea to size up.
