I didn’t get into leather pants until last fall because I had always assumed they would be uncomfortable, squeak with every moment and instantly make my legs sweat. However, after buying and wearing my first and only pair, I completely understand the hype and why they keep cropping up in my feeds season after season. I also now recognize the importance of investing in a high-quality pair that’ll stick around for years to come. Whether you’re a leather pants newbie or have a whole section of your closet dedicated to them, there’s a pair for you that’ll keep you both warm and stylish.

Leather pants are fall wardrobe essentials that are so versatile, you can wear them with anything and to anything. Style them with a chunky sweater, heeled boots and a coat to transition smoothly from a day in the office to happy hour with your besties. For a more laidback look, throw on a basic t-shirt, your most-loved pair of sneakers and a puffer jacket. And when spring has finally sprung, replace all of those bulkier layers with a cropped top and your go-to sandals. See, there is truly an infinite number of ways to wear leather pants across multiple seasons.

The best part about this trend is that your favorite brands likely already carry some incredible options. There’s the iconic Melina Pant from Aritzia, as well as extra chic styles from Zara and Abercrombie & Fitch. And if you’re worried about buying ones made from real leather, there’s no need to stress because all of the picks (except for two) are made from faux leather materials.

You are in for such a treat with these leather pants because I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many color options (32, to be exact). The Melina Pant has amassed quite the cult following and that’s probably because it’s made from Aritizia’s innovative vegan leather that’s so good, you wouldn’t even know it’s not real. If you already have a pair, grab another colorway or go for the flared version.

Straight-leg leather pants seem to be most on-trend at the moment, but try a wide-leg pair for fun movement and extra breathing room for your legs. Plus, there’s plenty of space to add a layer underneath for those brisk fall days.

I had to include another cargo pant option simply because I have a feeling they’re going to have a moment this fall. With the Y2K revival, it’s basically inevitable.

I find it so hard to resist split-hem pants. Why? Because they’re a bit more playful and exciting than ones that have ordinary, straight-across hems (though those are, of course, also great).
