Faux Leather Under $50 You've Gotta See to Believe

Sep 14 2013 - 12:45pm

Where there's a will, there's a way . . . including within the fashion space. While the price of buttery-soft leather leggings, boxy tees, and classic motorcycle jackets can make even the most avowed clotheshorse blush, there's a bounty of faux pieces out there ready to let you get in on the trend without breaking your budget. We hunted down options for top and bottom that help get the look for a fraction of the price.

The classic pencil skirt is even sexier thanks to the front zip on this Zara find [1] ($40).

All leather isn't rough and tough in black; this bubblegum pink Asos shift [2] ($30, originally $64) is sweet but chic.

Throw this boxy Astr motorcycle vest [11] ($50, originally $99) on over anything this Fall for a quick outfit update.

If you live in your motorcycle jacket once the weather gets crisp, consider how else you can wear the trend. The same feel works on this Dorothy Perkins skirt [12] ($49) thanks to zipper pockets and an angular cross seam.

All leather doesn't have to be tailored; these mushroom-hued Sabine jogging shorts [13] ($49) have a slouchy feel.
