Okay, I know there are plenty of people who will come for me when I admit that there's a fashion item even better than jeans, but hear me out: While jeans are definitely the backbone of my wardrobe most of the time, lately I've been putting them on hold for an item that's just as versatile, low-key, and cool as my beloved denim but are much fresher and more current, in my humble opinion. The trend in question? Faux leather pants. 

Leather pants have always been a winter staple in my book and I can't imagine getting through the season without at least one go-to pair, but as we move towards spring, my obsession is only growing. And I know I'm not alone, either. I have the intel that Who What Wear readers are buying the style in droves and based on my own Instagram feed, the fashion crowd is also with me here. So if you're ready to hop on the leather trousers trend, I've put together an edit of the best faux leather pants I'm eyeing at the moment.

Trust me when I say you'll be impressed by the quality of these buttery-soft vegan leather pants.

These super-soft tan pants are a great alternative to classic black.

Open Edit is one of Nordstrom's most popular in-house brands. 

These look way more expensive than $59. 

You can always trust Spanx to make you look fantastic. 

I'm in love with this beautiful milk chocolate color. 

Vegan leather is so much better than real leather.

I love the foldover waist on these beautiful pants by Eloquii. 

This beige color is just so darn chic. Wear these pants with a camel coat for a cool tonal look. 

These are a step up from your workout leggings, that's for sure.

I love the shininess of these patent versions.

These pants are made with recycled materials, so they're great for the sustainability-minded. 

I never knew I needed blue leather pants until now.

A very luxurious option if you're looking to splurge. 

Wide-leg pants are very much on-trend right now. 

White leather is a bit surprising—in a good way.
