We've already introduced you to this season's must-have denim, and there's a little bit of a twist in Fall's mix: leather-like jeans are replacing our tried-and-true staples as the most desired silhouette. The reason: they're undeniably sexy and slick, but in everyday silhouettes — seriously, what's cooler than strutting your stuff in a pair of sleek leather bottoms? Just look to Fall's runways from Diane von Furstenberg's polished take, Phillip Lim's colored leather, and Balmain's rocker-chic iterations for the proof. Now, we can think of few things that meld so seamlessly with our black ankle boots and a chunky sweater — and give them such cool-girl edge. If you're looking to test the waters before diving head first into the trend, this is the perfect starting place. We've culled just 23 of the best on the market, all under $150 — just the right price to take for a test drive.
