Fall Trend: Leather







Leather pants, sweatshirt, and heels all (c/o) T.J.Maxx
If you’ve been following along on Instagram, you may have noticed that I’ve been running wild like a soda-filled child in T.J.Maxx lately.  I can’t help it – fall is my favorite fashion season, and T.J.Maxx has everything I need.  (Or want.  But mostly need.)  This week’s trend spotlight is leather, and I couldn’t be more excited.  Leather is everywhere this season, and when you step into your local T.J.Maxx, you’ll notice a ton of it there too.  From heels and handbags to skirts, pants, and dresses, there are really great leather or faux leather pieces for every style and budget.  After hanging out in the dressing room for a while in these to-die-for blue leather skinnies, I wiped my drool and decided on the slightly edgier black pair above. 

I’m pretty sure I’ve never even tried on a pair of leather pants (besides the staple pull-on-and-go leather leggings), but these fit like a favorite pair of jeans.  They weren’t nearly as scary as I’d imagined, and in fact, I kind of felt like I could kick some serious butt.  To tame them a bit, I paired them with another of my favorite finds for fall – a chic and cozy sweatshirt.  I love the neckline detail of this top, and the fabric is just so good.  I rounded out the fall look with a bold pair of blue suede shoes, and I must say, I’m so glad that this season is all about simple, platform-free heels.  (My feet are also breathing a sigh of relief.)

On my way to the register, I veered off course and also snatched up this quilted, blush leather jacket.  I tried it on just for fun, but then I couldn’t take it off.  It fits like a glove, and really, who could blame me?  I couldn’t just leave this perfectly delicious leather jacket there, all by itself.  So I head for the register, but here’s where my T.J. really gets me.  A big chunk of their packed-to-the-gills beauty department just happens to be right next to the check-out…gets me every time.  This trip I picked up a 3-pack box of facial cleansing wipes because they’re my favorite and sometimes I’m just too tired (slash lazy) to fully wash off my makeup.  (Don’t judge me.)  And an extra bottle of dry shampoo just for good measure.  (I’m addicted.)

On I ramble, but the point is this: there’s no better time than now to try out fall’s leather trend, and there’s no better place to score the pieces you want than T.J.Maxx.  You’ll find the quality and style you’re looking for at a price you’ll love.  Happy shopping, everyone!


Expressing yourself through fashion, and knowing how to put together a great look—at great value, is what being a Maxxinista is all about.  At T.J.Maxx you can score the unexpected to make your own personal style statement. Here’s to rockin’ your real deal.

    Can I ask how tall you are? I love these pants but am worried they might be a bit too short for me at 5’8″. Thanks!

      Hi Tara,
      I’m actually 5’9″, so they’d probably be perfect for you 🙂
