You can bet that every fashion girl has at least one pair of beloved leather pants.

Top fashion sites for faux and genuine leather pants online


Hot tips for buying leather pants online:

  • Double check the fabric of the pants. You will often see "leather pants" advertised in the product name when in fact they're a PU fabric. If they are too cheap to be true, in most cases it will be because they're not genuine leather.
  • Scour the sale section. Your favourite premium retailers and brands are the go-to for hidden gems and last season styles. You might just pick up a cheeky pair of leather pants on discount or with a coupon code. Find coupon codes to use towards your next purchase at the end of this article.
  • Try before you buy. If you're out and about shopping IRL try on different styles of leather pants; genuine leather pants are expensive, so even if there's a flexible returns policy it's a lot of money to fork out at once if you need to return them for a different size . Try different brands on every time you see something you like before committing to buying them online when the time is right. (Hello, payday.)
  • Triple check the returns policy. Especially if you're buying from a promotion or sale section online, you might be subject to a different returns policy.

Leather pants to buy online

Where can I buy cheap leather pants?

It's always recommended to do your research before buying the pair of leather pants you see. You will often find similar styles across multiple websites or the same pair you've had your eye on, on sale somewhere else. A few of the fashion sites stand out for consistently offering budget-friendly prices on clothing, yet you will find that most of the sites showing cheap prices will have faux suede and leather-look rather than genuine leather.

Brit-brand Boohoo offer most of the range under $60 and you can pick up faux leather for as cheap as $10 when scouring the sale section. Showpo and Missguided also have leather and suede pants for bargain hunters.


Where can I buy genuine leather pants?

Shopbop and Brit-brand Farfetch will be your go-to for genuine, designer leather pants online and brands like Aussie retailer THE ICONIC and ASOS will have a mix of both faux and genuine. These brands host sale sections where you can save up to 70% off with last sizes available on last season stock. It's here you might be able to find a style bargain (read: treasure) and the wear forever investment pieces.
