Fact: This Coat Trend Will Make Literally Any Outfit Look Cool

There are always those pieces in your closet that no matter what your mood is beforehand, the second you put it on, it acts as an immediate mood-booster, making you look and feel good. For me, that piece right now is a leather trench coat. I purchased one this past spring at a vintage shop, and let's just say I've been waiting all summer to put it to use. Whether it's over a pair of sweatpants or a knit dress, the Matrix-inspired coat will have anyone looking put-together, even if you just rolled out of bed. (Trust me—I've tried it.)

Leather trenches are all over the market right now but you can end up scrolling through dozens of pages just to find the one you want. Don't fret because I come bearing good news: The search is over. Below is a roundup of 19 on-trend leather coats, along with some outfit inspiration from our favorite Instagram girls along the way. 

I love Mango for more elevated pieces that I want to add to my wardrobe, and this one seems to be calling my name. 

Wear this one open or tie it at the front for an edgy formal look.

I've been internet-stalking Apparis's fur coats, so I'm not surprised that their leather options are just as good too.

I love how the model's styled in casual wear underneath, leggings, and sporty sneakers. Proof that this coat will make even your workout wear look fashionable.

I wear my Zara leather blazer on constant rotation, so it only makes sense to try out the coat version as well, no?

Something about the fit and style of this one reminds me of the vintage ones that someone always seems to buy before I could on Instagram shop sales.

This one still keeps the trench coat silhouette but is padded to provide extra warmth during the winter.

If you're torn between a faux fur coat or leather, then this one is your perfect match.

Something about a croc emboss on leather just levels up a piece, don't you think?

I'm not sure what I love about this the most—the double-breasted buttons or the perfect oversize fit.

Anine Bing's pieces are worn by cool girls everywhere, so I'm not surprised they designed the perfect leather coat.

See what I mean by how this would look good over sweatpants too?

If you're not into the maxi length, try this shorter shacket option. This will be perfect for if you want to play around with lengths while layering.

I think shearling collars add such a nice twist to your standard coat.

Another faux-fur detailed one that I have on my list. I can't write a coat story without adding Stand Studio in there. I'm truly obsessed.

Yes, this coat converts to a dress. I know, I didn't believe it either.
