When it comes to fall styling, one thing is for sure this season: leather blazers are back.

From Kaia Gerber to Emily Ratajkowski to even TikTok star Addison Rae, A-listers are turning to leather blazers for fall ’20 ensembles. These sleek jackets provide an effortlessly cool appeal while still being laid back enough to wear with a T-shirt and jeans. Now more than ever, comfortable apparel pieces are closet staples, as working from home and staying indoors have become the new normal.

Leather blazers also fall in line with a growing desire for familiar fashion choices; they’re one of the many 90s-inspired trends like square-toe shoes and anklets making a comeback. Plus, they’re versatile. They can be worn with many outfits, from a maxi dress and booties to sweatpant and sneaker combos.

While many authentic leather blazers come with a hefty price tag, faux leather or vegan alternatives can help you achieve the same look for less. And most importantly, they’re animal-friendly, too.

Ahead, find the best faux leather blazers for under $100.
