Over-the-knee boots made a comeback last winter, and this fall it's the leather knee high boots that everyone is fussing about. The best way to wear them is to tuck your skinny jeans into them, but you can wear them with basically anything. They have been spotted on many celebrities, such as Hayden Panettiere and Blake Lively.

Another hot leather trend this fall is faux leather leggings. They are being sold in many popular stores, such as Victoria's Secret  Target, and Forever 21. Leather leggings became a big fashion statement in the fall season of 2008. They look best when worn with a pair of a high heels or boots, but they can be dressed up or dressed down. Try them on first before you purchase them, and put them back on the rack if they're anything less than fabulous.                                    

However, the biggest leather trend of the fall is the leather jacket. It's a little edgy, but at the same time simple and cute. Faux leather is a great alternative to the real thing, which is what you will usually find in clothing stores. One benefit to them is they're washable, unlike real leather.

All of these leather trends are huge this fall so switch back and forth trying the wide selection of edgy style. Make sure to add different pieces of leather clothing and footwear to your closet this season!
