Faux leather clothes are a great way to pull off one of this season’s biggest trends. If you prefer not to wear real leather, for whatever reason, then faux leather clothes are a stylish alternative. As an added bonus, they’re often much more affordable than clothes made from real leather. Take a look at the following faux leather clothes and let us know what you think.
Faux leather clothes come in all styles and forms this season. A black leather-look t-shirt is an easy to wear option. It would look great teamed with denim shorts and flat sandals for a cool daytime look. This faux leather t-shirt will set you back around $90 from Topshop but you can find more affordable alternatives at places like ASOS or Bloomingdales.
Steer clear of any skin-tight skirts and choose a faux leather skirt in a fuller design. Full or pleated faux leather skirts are a great way to work a more feminine look. This skirt from Modcloth features on-trend laser cut outs at the hem and costs $48. Also try Piperlime and Forever 21 for stylish and affordable buys.
A black faux leather dress is a great twist on the classic LBD. It’s versatile enough to be styled in different ways, but also has a bit of edginess to it. This black t-shirt style dress will set you back a little over $100 from Topshop but you can find more affordable alternatives at Nordstrom and ASOS. Team them with ankle boots for a cool and contemporary look or with strappy heels and a clutch for something more dressed up.
Instead of your usual black leather-look jacket, try a lighter or coloured option. This bomber jacket is by BB Dakota and comes in cool neutral hue. It would look great teamed with floral dresses for spring. Also try Nasty Gal, Free People, and New Look for similarly affordable buys.
Peplum tops are a popular option when it comes to working a ladylike look. In a faux leather fabric the peplum top can look quite edgy and cool. This particular peplum top is around $30 from Forever 21 and you can find similar styles at Arden B and Macy’s. Wear faux leather peplum tops with cigarette style pants and heels for a chic evening look.
Leather-look shorts are another way to wear the leather trend this season. Make this look work by sticking to shorts in looser cuts. These shorts cost around $60 from Topshop and feature cuffed hems and side zip details. Sporty, runner style shorts are another popular option this season. You can also find chic leather-look shorts from Lucca Couture and Stylestalker. Wear them with loose silky shirts and patent shoes for an effortlessly stylish look.
Leather pants come into fashion regularly and faux leather pants are an on-trend option at the moment. Right now the trend is for pants in a slim cut or jogger style. These faux leather pants from Last Call by Neiman Marcus are currently on sale and you can find similar styles at ASOS, Urban Outfitters, and Madewell.
Light leather clothes are a refreshing take on your usual dark leather-look clothes. A light or white leather dress would be a chic way to wear this trend. Whether it’s by Rachel Zoe or Forever 21 (pictured here), a light faux leather dress will help create a clean and streamlined look.
The metallic trend is still going strong. A metallic faux leather skirt is a fun and stylish way to work this trend into your look. When wearing metallic clothing, tone down the intensity with plain tops and neutral accessories. Check out Nasty Gal, ASOS, and Charlotte Russe for a range of metallic skirts.
Whether you prefer basic black or out-there metallics, there are a range of faux leather pieces for you to choose from right now. When it comes to the leather trend, do you opt for the real deal or the fake variety? How would you style these faux leather clothes?
