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…
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.
Despite the fact that every time I purchase something leather, I think about Ross Gellar’s’ pants on “Friends” (“The lotion and the powder have made a PASTE!”), I can’t get enough. The two looks above were seen on the catwalk this NYFW and I can’t decide which I prefer.

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.
After the jump, leather jackets and “leather” jackets we know you’ll 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 and a seriously fierce coordinating manicure (I might have made an appointment at my nail salon as a direct result of seeing this photo). Simple, edgy, stylish. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
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? I rounded up 10 of my favorite faux leather pieces from the Nordstrom sale, including sexy leather-esque pants in plus, petite, and regular sizes. Click through to shop the trend, but shop fast — these prices are only good til August 5th!
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. As a lover of Kate Hudson, the color pink, ’80s fashion, and black leather, I am completely obsessed with both looks. Which outfit do you prefer? Left Kate or Right Kate? [Photos: Fame/Flynet]
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 she changes her name to Kicole. Stay tuned! [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
“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 are dropping.” –Heather
Finding the perfect leather jacket is definitely a process of trial and error. I asked Ami about hers, and she said it’s vintage. Buying vintage might be one option you want to pursue, but you’ll have to be prepared to hit up a bunch of vintage shops and try on a zillion jackets (which could be, you know, fun). But if you’re really anti-vintage, we’ve found a few options that might work, too. Check ‘em out after the jump!

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 pop!). Like, the mere thought of boarding a cross-country flight in leather pants gets me all itchy and sweaty and running for a pair of cotton leggings and a baggy sweater. [Photo: Splash News]
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]
