Leather? For winter? We can hear Miranda Priestly sarcastically dismissing us for stating the obvious. Leather is undoubtedly one of the most popular textile choices come winter, but the trend this season is anything but obvious.

For Fall/Winter 2020, the heavyweight fabric found itself crafted into everything from colorful shirts to uber sexy slip dresses. Since the pandemic has successfully overthrown fashion’s reigning monarch, a.k.a the skinny jeans, “It” girls have already found a worthy heir: faux leather trousers. 

No, we do not mean Ross Gellar-like disastrously snug ones. While the wardrobe piece is the infamous star of one of the funniest episodes of Friends, the 2020 version comes sans wriggling, tugging, and discomfort. In fact, it is as comfortable as it gets.

Leather pants in all shapes, lengths, and colors were spotted on the Fall/Winter 2020 runways – even leather joggers are a thing now. Brands like Alberta FerrettiChanelBalmain, and Off-White, among many others, sent leather pants down their runways. Hailey Beiber has made a strong case for the trend by sporting the tough textile every chance she gets. The supermodel has so far rocked an open-back leather slip dress and multiple pairs of faux leather trousers. Influencers Oumayma El Boumeshouli and Leonie Hanne also played a role in convincing us in favor of the trend.

Cooler winds are (finally) blowing in the UAE, and that’s our cue to put our “winter” wardrobes on display. If you don’t own a pair of faux leather trousers already, we’ve got some chic options for you to choose from. Scroll down to discover and shop Savoir Flair‘s hand-selected faux leather trousers.
