No wardrobe is complete without a leather jacket. A versatile staple that works year-round, leather jackets undoubtedly go with most outfits. But when you're 5 foot 4 inches and under, finding the best leather jackets for petites that won't swallow your frame is often a challenge, whether you've got access to an in-store fitting room or not. However, don't let the fear of ordering something ill-fitting online let you shy away from dabbling in the hidden gems of Amazon Fashion.
It is possible to feel confident hitting "add to cart" on outerwear without trying it on. The main thing you'll want to keep in mind is length. Opt for a shorter jacket that'll hit at or just below your hips, especially if the product you're shopping isn't explicitly available in petite sizes. Note: If you're shopping "regular" sizes, there's a chance you'll still have to visit a tailor to shorten the sleeves or make minor adjustments, but the alterations won't be as intense on an already-short garment.
Finding genuine leather online isn't exactly easy, but Amazon does have a couple great lambskin options that, considering the material, are reasonably priced. And if you want to achieve the leather look sans animal skin, you're in luck because pleather has come a long way. Some faux materials look and feel surprisingly real.
I've scoured Amazon for a few ready-to-wear options, fellow petites. Keep reading to shop them all, and prepare to hold onto this piece for years to come.
