The $35 Trend Everyone Is Setting Aside Their Jeans For

Leather (and its faux counterpart) is a huge trend for fall. For F/W 19, designers like Bottega Veneta, Loewe, Ganni, and more offered dozens of ideas on how to wear leather—leather separates, leather dresses, leather accessories, and full head-to-toe leather looks—but more than anything, we predict leather pants are the item everyone will choose. In fact, we're already seeing the fashion crowd prioritizing the luxurious-looking pants over their beloved jeans.

We took it upon ourselves to design our very own version of the leather pant trend for our Who What Wear collection at Target, something we do pretty often when we spot emerging trends. Thanks to its paper bag waist, rich burgundy color, and buttery soft texture, our Faux Leather Paperbag Pants rival any of their expensive counterparts. Not only are they a cool option to elevate your outfits this fall, but they clock in at just $35, so there's no reason not to try them out for yourself. To see some of our favorite leather pant outfits of the past few weeks and then, of course, shop ours, just keep scrolling.

Try wearing something delicate like a lace top to balance out the tougher feel of the leather.

These would look even more expensive if you styled them in an all-cream outfit.

Also available in more sizes.

I'm getting '70s English teacher vibes in the best way possible.

We'd wear these just like the model did, with a thin knit top tucked in.

Also available in more sizes.

Fact: a solid pair of black trousers does all the heavy lifting in your work wardrobe.

It's all about the contrast stitching on this cool utility-style pair.
