Winter puffer coats might be practical for packing, but – let’s face it – bulky garments lack shape and style. That’s probably why more and more celebrities are stepping out in a more stylish (but just as warm!) alternative: leather raincoats.
For the beginning of the new year, Hailey Bieber upgraded the otherwise very casual combination of a sports bra and flowing tights with a long open leather trench coat. During a recent visit to New York, Shania Twain accessorized her new pink hair with a sharp top paired with a black turtleneck and knee-high boots. Miranda Kerr chose a softer vibe with a deep brown leather trench which she wore over a mini skirt, leggings and a black turtleneck W Magazine’awards dinner in beverly hills.

And the trench coat trend does not end there. Other celebs, including Lori Harvey, Kylie Jenner and more, completed their look with a classic layered piece, with some opting for different shades or styles with embellishments like faux fur or a timeless tie around the waist, proving that the options extend beyond plain black jacket.
But we know what you’re thinking: full-length leather, or even leather, is often expensive on its own. And A-listers more than likely wear designer labels. But rest assured, you can achieve a similar look without skimping on a single garment, and you won’t have to sacrifice quality either.
Take, for example, the Ebossy long leather raincoat. Amazon customers say it looks much more expensive than its $70 price tag. One reviewer said it “looks and feels like leather.” Another said they “like the weight” and that it “doesn’t feel flimsy.”

If you prefer a mid-thigh length to a floor-length one, the Tanming Faux Leather Jacket is a good choice. Priced at $76, they’ll effortlessly dress up any outfit or give your business casual look a little edge. One reviewer said the fabric has a “good feel and looks great,” however, many noted that it runs small, so if you’re planning on layering a knit underneath, it might be a good idea to size up.
