Figuring out what to wear for events during the holidays can be tricky with so much on our calendars. Between the parties and family gatherings, there simply isn’t always time to plan out every look down to the details. Since we want to spend more time completing other holiday errands and actually enjoying the festivities we RSVP’d for, we’re using our secret weapon to give looks an extra edge: the classic leather jacket!

Leather jackets are wardrobe staples that add an instant moto-chic vibe to any ensemble. The design looks as cool on top of a ruffled maxidress and heels as it does paired with a plain sweater, jeans and boots. We can also wear them everywhere from the workplace to hangout sessions with friends.  Since leather jackets are such a neutral outerwear piece, we are always on the hunt for a new one in a slightly different silhouette or with a unique feature. The Shop With Us team spotted a must-have version of the leather jacket on sale at Nordstrom and it’s a topper we’ll be wearing for casual holiday gatherings and everything else.

The Caslon Leather Moto Jacket with Removable Hood is super trendy thanks to details like an asymmetrical zip closure, a notched collar, zip cuffs on each sleeve and two front zip pockets.

With the authentic leather material and cozy fleece knit of the inset, we’re in for an extra warm wear experience. The design is Nordstrom’s simple fix for those who regularly bundle up with hooded pullovers beneath leather jackets to beat the cold. Since the drawstring hood inset can be zipped off, we get two looks in one stylish jacket. Sizes range from extra small to XXL.

There are so many festive looks we can throw together with this comfy design! With the hood inset removed, the moto topper can grunge up a sequin bodycon dress and sparkly heels. We could also pull off an all-black ensemble with this jacket, a little black dress and black heeled ankle booties. The jacket with the hood inset attached would also look chic with an oversized sweater dress, stockings, over-the-knee boots plus a chain strap cross-body bag.

For any events where we want a playful look but prefer to wear pants, this jacket pairs well with sequin or velvet leggings. We could also wear the leather jacket with a sparkly jumpsuit, strappy heels and an evening clutch. When the warmer months roll around, we’re still not putting this leather jacket away. The design will pair well with our summer dresses, denim shorts, over-the-knee skirts, tank tops and crop tops.

Even when a party isn’t in our plans, this outerwear pick is game for casual looks and can easily work with our long sleeve T-shirts, jogger pants, jeans and sneakers. On dress-down days, we can step out wearing our favorite cozy velour sweatsuit, slip-on sneakers and the Caslon Leather Moto Jacket.

Shoppers who already own this Caslon Leather Moto Jacket could not stop gushing about how “buttery soft” the leather feels with one shopper sharing that she receives compliments every time she wears it out. Several reviewers appreciated the removable hood inset and how it minimizes bulkiness. They also liked that the jacket is lightweight yet warm. One shopper appreciated that the jacket has so many details, with her favorite being the zippers along the wrists. Several noted that the jacket also has a great fit.

Although Nordstrom notes that this jacket runs large and recommends shoppers size down, several reviewers mentioned they ultimately needed to size up. Carefully eye the size guide in order to get the most comfortable fit.

This jacket is a great on sale find for anyone wanting to treat themselves to an authentic leather piece this holiday season. Since real leather jackets are often durable, we can also be confident that any person we gift with one can actually enjoy it for years.

We’re stepping our outerwear game up this season and beyond thanks to this super chic jacket.
