The temperature has finally started to drop in Utah, and I am drinking a PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte) as I write this!
Fall is my FAVORITE FREAKING time of year, and not just because of my Starbucks drink options. I feel creatively rejuvenated by fall (and I love winter), and I love the holidays and fall fashion.
Oh boy, do I love fall fashion!
Everyone Needs a Plus Size Leather Jacket. Orrr Five.
A fall staple that I think every person should have in their closet is a leather (or faux-leather) jacket! A great leather jacket lasts YEARS, and can be styled with a variety of clothing pieces (from gowns to ripped jeans).
But *finding* a leather jacket, especially in plus sizes, can be a challenge. Below, I’ve shared a listicle of where to buy a plus size leather jacket, with notes on pricing and whether the piece is faux-leather or actual leather!
Did I miss a brand? Be sure to pop in the comments with a recommendation!
Brand #1: Torrid – Plus Size Moto Leather Jacket
Torrid is my go-to place for leather jackets, and in the fall they usually have several to choose from. I recently snagged this leather motorcycle jacket ($98) in a 3, and I love the hardware. It’s also cut a bit longer and hits at a great spot in my body. (Other moto leather jackets have hit at the fullest part of my stomach, which I do NOT enjoy.)
This faux-leather jacket is available in up to a 6X (size 30) here.
Brand #2: Eloquii – Plus Size Red Leather Jacket ($129.95)
Eloquii has SUCH a variety of plus size leather jackets, including this red plus size leather jacket that makes a STATEMENT! This plus size leather jacket is actuallyyyy faux leather, and has a “moto” cut.

I’m a big fan of the ASOS shipping membership program, Premiere Delivery, where you get free 2-day shipping for a year. I will buy multiples of a type of item (like leather jackets), try them and show them off on my Instagram story, and then ship back the ones I don’t like!

How to Find a Well-Fitting Plus Size Leather Jacket
Finding a leather jacket that fits well is KEY. I’ve definitely tried on plus size faux-leather jackets that are too bulky or fit me…. oddly.
When it comes to shopping for plus size clothes, it’s important to remember that each brand designs for different body types. If a piece doesn’t fit you well, your body isn’t the problem! The brand may be targeting consumers who carry their weight differently or are different sizes.
When I try on a leather jacket, here’s what I look for:
- Sleeve Length: The sleeves should hit about an inch before your thumb knuckle.
- Jacket Hem: I have a long torso, so I look for longer leather jackets. I like my leather jacket to hit a few inches above the fullest parts of my stomach.
- Shoulder Seams: Ill-fitting jackets have the shoulder seams falling on your upper arms – not your shoulders. This may be a design detail if you like an oversized look, or annoying if you want something more fitted!
- Closures: Be sure to test zippers and pockets for usability. Some RTW plus size jackets have tiny or fake pockets!
