Fall fashion wouldn't feel right without a bit of leather included in your most stylish looks. Leather is extremely versatile, making it wearable for work or play and a great fabric to transition into fall with. Whether you like it or absolutely love it, here are 16 different ways to rock leather this season.

Over-the-Knee Leather Boots

Jane of Fit Fab Fun Mom is killin' it in her black leather over-the-knee boots. She proves that moms can still look sexy while remaining tasteful and appropriate. OTK boots look best with mini skirts and dresses, but try them with skinny jeans, too.

Leather Jackets with Maxi Dresses

Transition your summer maxi dresses into fall by adding a leather jacket on top as Julie of Sincerely, Jules did. It will both toughen up and elevate your look. This fall, consider investing in a colored leather jacket to go beyond standard black and brown versions.

A leather vest is a great layering piece for the summer-to-fall transition. Courtney of Always Judging added a touch of grunge to her bright summer dress with this little black vest. Keep up the fall momentum with a deep bold lip and chunky-heeled booties.

Bold Leather Bag

Every girl needs a new leather carryall for the fall season. Owning a classic black one is a must, but we're going to assume you already have that covered. So instead of growing your black bag collection, go for a bold color as Lara of Be Sugar & Spice did with this red one.

Leather Legging

Leather leggings or leather skinny pants are ideal for cold weather days. Style them with a striped tee, a blazer or denim jacket, or a chunky knit sweater. Finish off your look with loafers for a casual day look, or dress up your skinnies with a pair of heels as Jacey of Damsel in Dior did.

Leather Midi Skirt

Balance out a fitted top with a leather midi skirt as shown by Krystal of This Time Tomorrow. Midis are great for channeling your inner Audrey Hepburn, but give your look some Marilyn Monroe with a little leather edge.

Leather Baseball Hat

We love everything about this borrowed-from-your-boyfriend look from Jena of Chic City Fashion, especially the leather baseball hat (we lust for that hat!). Leather hats are another easy and inexpensive way to work this luxe material into your wardrobe this fall—and a stylish way to hide your dirty hair!

Leather Details

If you're not sure about leather, start small. Look for pieces with leather details like the pockets on this dress worn by style blogger Cara Loren. They're just the right amount without overpowering her outfit.

Leather Pleated Mini Skirt

Pleated skirts bring to mind the classic schoolgirl style, but find a leather one and you'll scream rock 'n' roll. Follow in the footsteps on Alicia of Cheetah Is The New Black, and wear one with a sweater, or pair your pleated mini with a graphic tee or chambray top.

Leather and Denim Mix

Denim and leather form a match made in Heaven as illustrated in this ensemble worn by Sydney of The Day Book. Topping off the look with a casual beanie is the icing on the cake for us. Cool has never looked so effortless.

Cognac Leather Dress

A leather dress is a must-have fall staple. It's perfect layered over a blouse for work or paired with a statement necklace for date night. While we love black leather, this cognac-color shift worn by Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere is calling our name.
