Fall is officially here, which means it’s time to sip pumpkin spice lattes while prancing around town in your best fall gear. One of our favorite textile additions to our fall wardrobe is leather—but specifically a good pair of vegan leather pants. Whether you dress them down with a plain white tee or decide to spice them up with a pair of sassy boots, vegan leather pants can bring any basic fall outfit from drab to fab in a matter of seconds.
We know what you’re thinking—wearing vegan leather pants is a different from wearing the ever-so-timeless leather jacket, but they aren’t nearly as constricting or as sweat-inducing as they may sound. From cozy half-knit leggings to wide-legged cropped pants, there are so many styles of vegan leather pants that you’re bound to find a pair that fits your lifestyle.
What we love about vegan leather pants, besides the ethical reasons, is the affordable pricing compared to real leather. To help you stay on trend while preserving animal life (and your bank account), we’ve rounded up 11 pairs of vegan leather pants that should be on your radar this fall. Trust us—you wouldn’t want to miss out on this edgy fall essential.
