The Season’s Best Faux Leather Pants Under $180

When fall arrives on the calendar, there’s just something that clicks in our closets. Forget those summer silks, airy tanks and maxi dresses, because along with that red Starbucks cup, we’re craving nothing but cashmere, tweed and leather. But leather is known not only for being badass — it’s also one of the most expensive splurges you can make when it comes to adding it to your wardrobe.

Thankfully, there’s always the faux version, which we wholeheartedly stand by, especially when it’s cut in the season’s most covetable silhouettes. If you’re looking for a faux leather jogger or a pair of vegan leather trousers, we’ve got what you’re looking for, and none of it will break your budget. Paired with chambray shirts, cozy sweaters and lean, mean blazers, these pieces will look much more expensive than they really are.

Rodarte Teams With & Other Stories

Rodarte x & Other Stories

With Los Angeles already in the minds of high fashion designers (ahem, Simane and Ghesquiere), it’s about time that fast fashion started to look our way. And while yes, H&M has teamed with Coachella, the brand is looking to go a little more fashion-forward with its latest collab. The brand’s sister label & Other Stories has announced a capsule collection with Los Angeles’ own Rodarte, and we’ve got the first preview pic, above.

The line, which will include apparel, accessories and shoes priced between $29 and $325, will probably reflect Rodarte’s obsession with L.A. culture, which has materialized via chola-inflected collections, cinematic runways and more. It also helps that sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy have a roster of Hollywood BFFs to build the hype. Their bestie Kirsten Dunst is set to star in the pair’s film debut, Woodstock. The collection will draw from the sisters’ usual fare: embellishment, bold colors and techy fabrics.

€œThrough this special collaboration with & Other Stories, we are excited to translate the Rodarte narrative into a new environment,” said the sisters in a statement.

& Other Stories managing director Samuel Fernstrom, added, “We€™re adding a new L.A.-infused perspective to our selection and bringing inspiration and ideas to encourage all personal styles, or stories.”

This isn’t the first time Rodarte has participated in a high-low collab.

Target tapped the sisters for a collection in 2009 and the pair partnered with Opening Ceremony the same year. Superga offered up a limited-edition collection designed by Rodarte earlier this year, as well. The Rodarte & Other Stories is set to debut next spring.

And as for & Other Stories, which recently announced that it’s opening a West Coast shop at South Coast Plaza, Rodarte is just the latest in a illustrious roster of collaborators, including Clare Vivier and Rachel Antonoff.
