Leather is one of those trends that pretty much never goes out of style. And it's no wonder: You can take an outfit from plain to totally rockin' just by adding a leather moto jacket or fun leather accessories. The problem, of course, is that leather can be really, really expensive. But there are some items -- particularly faux items -- that look just as hot at half the price. Here are some of our favorite looks involving leather clothes and accessories you can actually afford:
