Faux leather has come a long way from the uncomfortable “pleather” we all knew in the ’90s. With technological innovations, today’s faux leather often has a luxurious feel and more closely resembles the real thing. In recent years, as many fashion designers have committed to becoming more sustainable, faux leather has shed its bad reputation and become more desirable.
There are several advantages to buying faux leather. Since it is often much less expensive than the real thing, we can experiment with color or trendy items that we don’t plan to keep in our closet for decades. Faux leather is often lighter in weight and much easier to clean than real leather because it doesn’t absorb liquids. Faux leather doesn’t breathe like real leather, so it is best suited for wear during the colder months. If you tend to get hot flashes, you might be wise to stick to layering pieces like jackets or handbags and shoes. Here are my top stylish faux leather pics to add some spice to your fall wardrobe.
