  1. 1

    Pick a style for your jacket. Leather jackets can feature rhinestone decorations, chains, buckles, fur collars and drawstring belts. Select a specific style before shopping and focus on finding that style.

  2. 2

    Search local stores and online vendors for the best deals. Most major department stores carry leather coats for women, but you'll find a larger variety of leather items online. Know your correct size before shopping on the Internet, and thoroughly read through the online vendor's return policy in case you purchase an item that doesn't fit.

  3. 3

    Conduct research on the type of animal that the leather garment is made from to get a good idea of its quality. For example, if you need a durable leather jacket, you may choose lambskin leather since lamb is more durable than sheep or cow leather.

  4. 4

    Purchase your leather jacket based on a manufacturer brand you can trust. Manufacturers are responsible for the brand quality. Avoid focusing solely on name brands and find women's leather items made by manufacturers with a reputation for producing quality leather items for women. Look for quality lining and the proper finishing touches.

  5. 5

    Find colours that complement your current clothing. Black and brown leather jackets are most popular, but leather comes in a variety of colours. Look through your closet before purchasing your leather jacket to get ideas about which colour would make the best addition to your wardrobe.
