When you hear ‘leather pants’ you may automatically think of Ross Geller in Friends.

The hilarious scene where he struggles to get the trousers on while covered in talc powder has been embedded in the minds of many.

However, leather trousers can be a wardrobe staple – you just have to look in the right places.

Achingly cool and incredibly chic, they are an autumn must-have that can take you from chilly lunchtime walks in the park, to a glam cocktail night with the girls.

Over the years, leather and faux leather have become even easier to wear as brands experiment with different design methods and materials.

Stretch is welcome, lining is no longer sweat inducing, while flattering shapes and comfort are paramount.

One of the best providers of faux leather right now is Abercrombie & Fitch. Once synonymous with loungewear and hoodies, the classic American brand has delved into the world of wearable style.

The vegan leather is soft and form-fitting and the curve range ensures a close fit around the waist and hips.

Meanwhile, Arket and & Other Stories will serve those who prefer to stick to the real material. Shapes are fashionable but versatile, and most versions will provide a welcome edge to office wear.

This autumn, wear yours with oversized knits and classic trainers for the day but switch it up with strappy heels and a bodysuit for nighttime sophistication.

So, readers, you heard us, it’s time to invest in a pair.
