Style Spotlight: Faux Leather
Posted by Leigh Roldan on
Sleek and chic, the allure of leather has been felt for decades. Gone are the days when pleather was merely a stand-in for the real deal. Now, it's confidently making a statement in every style situation, and could even be preferred now over genuine leather. From women's faux leather jackets and coats to pants and skirts, faux leather clothing has truly evolved from trendy to must have.
With an attractive smooth material, it effortlessly adds a touch of edge to your looks. Opt for timeless shades like black and brown to match with everything, or step outside the box with colours like beige, green, blue and red.
In this style spotlight, explore the various types of faux leather pieces and how to style them. Let's start with the classics...
Looking for versatility and warmth? Women's faux leather jackets are a go-to! From biker and zip-up designs to a blazer and an oversized leather jacket, there's a wide variety of styles to choose from. And the best part? You can style a faux leather jacket with practically anything! For example, pair your cropped leather jacket with a white tee, denim jeans and sneakers for an effortlessly cool look that's perfect for a weekend outing or a casual meet-up with friends.
Next on the style radar are faux leather pants, the veritable rock stars of the fashion world. These bottoms have a knack for stealing the spotlight, no matter the occasion. From leggings that hug your figure like a dream, to wide-leg styles that embody casual chic, and even flared pants that scream retro glamour - there's a pair of vegan leather pants to match every vibe. Ooze confidence in tailored trousers, a crop top and heeled boots, or turn heads on a night out with wet-look bottoms and a corset top.
Striking the perfect balance between feminine and edgy, faux leather skirts can elevate any outfit. From pencil to A-line and mini to maxi, there's a pleather skirt for every mood. When it comes to the office, a midi skirt styled with a button-up blouse and pumps radiates a professional charm that's hard to ignore. Want to channel your inner rock-n-roll queen? Team a mini with a lace top, strappy heels and gold jewellery.
