Leather clothing was predicted as a hot popular trend for Fall and Winter 2010 and designers have not dissapointed. Leather leggings have become especially hot this season, seen on everyone from people on the streets to models behind the camera. Authentic leather leggings are running on average, about $1,000. So for the rest of us (aka 99.9% of the population), who can't afford that price tag, there are some very affordable and equally fabulous alternatives. That is why my pick for today is this pair of wax pencil jeans from J Brand.
What's great about this pair of jeans is that they have that leather look to them but they're also a little toned down so you can wear them in more casual situations. Personally, I see myself pairing these with some boots and a loose tee. J Brand is a really popular brand among the celebrities and they are pretty reasonably priced. These jeans are on sale at Shopbop.com for $198.00.
Unlike some of the other trends this season, leather doesn't seem to be going anywhere. You'll be able to wear these throughout 2011 and that's why they're such a great investment. Even if you can't justify to yourself purchasing a $200 pair of jeans, there a many cheaper versions of faux leather leggings out there and they won't be too hard to find.
