I adore leather of all shades,  colors and textures. So I guess it’s just my luck that leather is all the rage right now.

Throughout the summer, we’ve even seen celebrities, such as Miley Cyrus (above), rocking the leather trend and looking hot (figuratively speaking) all the while.

The great thing about leather is that it’s timeless. This season designers are switching up leather looks that we’re accustomed to with fun silhouettes and accents on our favorite wardrobe staples.

Though I can’t wait to wear my leather motorcycle jacket this fall, my favorite leather piece to wear right now is this pleated Alice + Olivia skirt  (above) from Nordstrom. You can get a similar look with the MISS WU Pleated Leather Skirt, also from Nordstrom:

If you’re loving the leather trend, but not loving the prices, I highly recommend faux leather. Not only is faux leather equally chic, it’s affordable and animal-friendly. Try the (Minus the) Leather Fit and Flare Skirt from Express for a stylish alternative:
