From the slick sleeves of our jackets to our new favorite kind of skinny pants, leather is quickly taking over our wardrobe staples. This season, the material — whether it be faux or the real deal — is cropping up on our favorite street stylers, celebrities, and runways, from Wang to Tibi. Now we're out to arm our closets with the very best in luxe (or at least, luxe looking) leather finds. Whether you're out for a sleek little leather dress, a great shearling-lined biker jacket, or a hot leather miniskirt to amp up your Fall look, we've got you covered with our 25 must-have pieces — and nothing over $500. Now remember:
- A great leather jacket is a worthy investment piece that will far outlast this season's trend-driven pieces.
- A faux leather legging offers a fantastic, seasonal alternative to the skinny jean, and you don't need to spend a fortune to find a pair.
- Look for leather details on tees and dresses. A leather sleeve, pocket, or lapel on a blazer is another way to cash in on the trend without committing to a solid leather piece.
