Colder weather will bring more layers and textures!! Do you go for the real deal when it comes to leather or are you a faux leather lover? I LOVE both! I have both, although my faux doesn’t last as long as the real deal. I would suggest to go with faux if there is a trend you want to try or its too cute to pass up!!! It won’t last forever but it will save you a bit of money!
Faux leather pleats are a must have to upgrade your texture game! Pleats are mesmerizing and eye catching! Pleats can give a prim and proper vibe although if done in leather it kicks the cool factor up a bit! Express has a fantastic faux leather pleated skirt with amazing pockets and belt details! Shop Saks for this amazing real deal skirt…LOVE the cut and color!
With the weather fluctuating vests are a great investment for fall. This faux leather moto vest added a chic new age take on layers. Gives a biker, apocalyptic, rocker chic vibe!!! Obsessed with how the pink pops the texture and keeps it girlie. Fadcloset has a real deal vest that is stunning or you can go with the faux vest from Shein.
Gold faux jacket is a smart investment to add a bit of metallic with out breaking the bank! This luxurious and rich tone is irresistible. Metallics can definitely be a neutral, match the accessories! Layer with pieces that have similar tones like this dragon embroidered bustier. Farfetch has a splurge for a show stopping gold leather jacket! Try Shein’s gold faux jacket for some fun!
To wrap it up I have to leave you with the real deal!! This fendi leather skirt is over twenty years old and look as good as the day I bought it. This to me is a piece that can be worn for generations of fashionistas to come.
Faux is fun and oh the cool textures you can add into your wardrobe, however if you can do the real…DO IT!! Time will prove that Leather is here to stay..literally!
So will you faux…or are you the real deal?
