The leather jacket has been a staple item in fashion for years. From the movie stars of the 1940’s and 50’s, the studded punk jackets of the 1970’s,  the fleece collared leather jackets of the 1980’s, to the multitude of colors and styles that are available today, leather jackets are a versatile piece that can be styled more ways than we can count! Here, we’ve gathered some of our favorites from around the web. The catch? They’re all red! The stereotypical leather jacket is always black or brown, so mix it up with one of these bold choices!
