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]
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 with an unexpected edge. But let’s face it — good leather doesn’t come cheap. Hell, neither does good pleather. The quest to find the right pair of pants, or the perfect skirt, isn’t easy, so we’ve made it a little easier by compiling 10 of our best bets (of both leather and vegan pleather) under $300, with 4 options under $100. Don’t be afraid to invest in leather, because if New York Fashion Week runway trends are any indication (and duh, of course they are), the look is here to stay well through the next two seasons.
Leather is nothing new, but for spring/summer 2013, designers used it in innovative ways. From sewn leather trousers, to buttery leather dresses and colored denim in every hue, there was something for every leather lover at New York Fashion Week. Check out some of our faves above!
