The oversized lapel, fur (faux or otherwise) lined leather jacket is popping up all over the place for fall. The first version I saw was the Helmut Lang Chasm Shearling Jacket, which is gorgeous at $1,140. If I had an extra $1,140 sitting around, the Helmut Lang jacket would be pretty high up on my list. But, this new, more affordable take on the trend has a certain charm all its own.

The Rachel Rachel Roy Aries Leather Jacket features a genuine leather outer with faux curly lamb lining. It's available in sizes XS to XL for just $299, which makes it one of the most affordable of the genuine leather versions of this trend. And, while the Helmut Lang version is stunning, the coloring of this Rachel Rachel Roy jacket feels significantly more wearable for everyday occasions and much more likely to accommodate a sweater or other fall clothing underneath. Wearability, affordability and fashion-forward style really is a great combination of qualities.
