Four faux leather pieces to flirt with this fall
Faux leather (which is also going by the AKA of vegan leather this season) makes a compelling case. It’s a friendly and stylish alternative for animal lovers. And for those who aren’t willing to shell out their rent payment for a leather mini, there’s a faux leather lookalike for a fraction of the cost.
Just like plaid button-ups and cognac riding boots, we’re always eager to welcome back leather to fall fashion. This year, more and more stores are offering faux leather picks. We’ve got to say, it’s looking good this year. Real good.
(A shopping tip: Look for faux leather with less sheen).
Here are four faux leather pieces for fall that are crush-worthy (and won’t break the bank).
- Topshop ‘Saffiano’ Colorblock Satchel, $58 from Nordstrom is a perfect carry-all for fall to put a little bit of prep in your step. Where was this bag when you were in school? The faux leather satchel has double-buckle closures and contrasting color panels. (Cash Back alert! You can earn up to 15 percent Cash Back at Nordstrom when you shop with ShopAtHome.com).
- Faux leather trim shift, $130 from Banana Republic adds a pop of leather on the sleeves and neckline of a classic gray shift dress making it a piece that is apropos to transition from the 9-to-5 to happy hour.
- Faux leather pencil skirt, $29 from Old Navy will get lots of wear throughout the fall and winter. Seriously, you can wear it with everything: A statement T-shirt, a flannel button-up, a cozy sweater, a crisp white button-up. Say hello to the most versatile piece in your closet.
- Faux leather satchel, $27.90 from Forever 21 comes in a soft, dusty pink, is fully lined and has gold enclosures. We love a soft pink worn as a feminine neutral and paired with classic fall colors like army green and crimson reds.
