One of the items shown above is a pair of petite faux leather overalls from ASOS. The other is a pair of men’s rubber chest waders from Amazon. Can you tell which is which? I’m still trying to figure it out… … READ MORE »

Hi, my name is Katie and I’m addicted to leather. But seriously … the fact that leather is SO in this fall and that it’s coming back for more next spring, at least according to what we’re seeing on the NYFW runways, might be a serious problem for my bank account.

A leather jacket is de rigueur for fall. But not everyone has the inclination or the ethics (hello, vegans!) to spend big bucks on a nice moto jacket. That’s why we’re here — to find the affordable, faux-leather versions of the high fashion styles you love.

If this trend continues, I’m thinking the LLDOAC (Little Leather Dress Of Any Color) will soon replace the LBD (Little Black Dress) as women’s go-to party ensemble. Case in point: Heidi Klum’s fabulous oxblood (are we still calling this color “oxblood”? Have we moved on to “Hematoma” yet?) leather dress, accessorized perfectly with gold earrings… READ MORE »

I scoped out the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale over the weekend, and one trend definitely stood out to me: So. Much. Faux. Leather. I’m not complaining! I love the look of leather, but I really love faux leather because it’s more affordable and more humane than genuine leather. Want to add this sexy trend to your fall wardrobe? READ MORE »

Kate Hudson showed up for an appearance on the “Late Show with David Letterman” in a leather pencil skirt with a hot pink top, and left the studio in a leather micro mini and hot pink pumps.

On a recent night out in London, Nicole Scherzinger hit the town in a leather jacket, tight crop top, major false lashes, slicked-back hair, and a slightly baffling pair of leather pant-boots. I can only assume that Nicole is auditioning for the role of the 6th Kardashian sister, but the real proof will come when… READ MORE »

“I’m searching for a cute black leather jacket in the price range of under $500, sort of like the one that Ami’s been rocking.  There’s so many of them out there it’s overwhelming to search, but I think it’s an item a lot of Frisky readers might be interested in, especially now that the temperatures… READ MORE »

Fergie arrived at LAX looking every bit the leather-clad, gold-fringed rock star. It’s a fierce outfit to be sure, but I’m having similar feelings seeing this as I do when I see Kim Kardashian going out to dinner in super-tight, sheer, strappy, belted, bondage-inspired outfits (seriously, three sips of soup and that skirt seam is gonna… READ MORE »

What is up with Jessica Biel today, guys? She is wearing every kind of trend at once. Colored leather, studded leather, a weird peasant top? Did she switch stylists? Join a lesbian biker gang? Pick up a side job as a Michael Jackson impersonator? What’s the deal, Biel? [Photo: WENN]READ MORE »

Celebs may have worn it first, but we’ve been feeling leather (and leather-look) pants, shorts, and skirts in the forecast for some time now. The right piece fits seamlessly into any wardrobe; it can be the centerpiece of an outfit in color or worn with anything in black. Either way, it’s a luxurious, classic look… READ MORE »

Jessica loves this Kate Spade Cobble Hill Kori hobo bag. It’s very much in Jessica’s style — feminine, soft and classic. But she’s really not feeling the bag’s $478 price tag. So rather than go into major debt for a purse, we’ve offered to find her similar bags at a much more pleasing price point. READ MORE »

Anna Dello Russo is an editor-at-large and creative consultant for Vogue Japan. But she’s probably best known for her wild costumery and show-stopping hats.  Though she’s often seated front row during fashion week, it’s her outlandish outfits that have landed her time and again on style blogs. And Yoox.com even did a T-shirt collaboration featuring… READ MORE »

A couple years ago, I wrote a love letter of sorts to my hand-me-down leather jacket. But sadly, my little leather jacket and I are breaking up. Why? Well my too-wide shoulders have pushed a wedge between us. So now I’m on a hunt for a new love because everyone needs an LLJ. Whether faux or real,… READ MORE »
