10 Fashionable Faux-Leather Pieces For Fall
There is nothing more timeless than leather. Whether it's a pair of buttery-soft gloves, a tailored blazer, or simple straight pants, leather never seems to go out of style. But leather can be prohibitively expensive, especially when you're talking about a larger piece like a jacket. And for those who want to keep their wardrobes vegan, it's simply out of the question.
That's why we love faux leather: it looks the part, it's far more affordable, and it's animal friendly. These days, you can find faux leather of excellent quality. Shop the curated selection ahead to find faux-leather pieces that you'll wear time and again, from the perfect Chelsea boot to form-fitting leggings and even a gilded purse for fancy nights out. There's even an on-trend faux-leather bucket hat, so you can go from head to toe.
Missguided Faux Leather Padded Jacket in Black
For days when it's too blustery for a denim jacket or a chunky sweater, pick up this smooth faux-leather puffer ($67, originally $78). While the coat itself is a bit oversize — perfect for wearing said chunky sweater underneath — you can tighten the adjustable toggle at the hem if you want. We love the wide collar, which delivers a little extra attitude whether you're bundling up to run errands or heading out for a night on the town.
Missguided Chunky Chelsea Boots in Black Faux Leather
Chelsea boots are a fall and winter essential. (They even can be worn in spring with a cute silk dress.) This faux-leather version ($56, originally $70) has an extra chunky heel for when you want a little lift without sacrificing comfort. Throw them on with a pair of relaxed jeans and a sweater, and voilà: you've got your fall uniform right there.
Alice + Olivia Ofra Vegan Leather Mini Dress
This delightfully feminine faux-leather minidress ($465) covers so many trends that we aren't quite sure where to start. Maybe it's the sweet puff sleeves or the super-short hem. Maybe it's the fit-and-flare silhouette or the work-ready spread collar. Maybe it's those oversize buttons. Whether you're headed to a lunch meeting or going out with friends, this dress is sure to make a stylish statement.
Topshop Faux Leather Wide Leg Pants in Green
If leather pants remind you of that one iconic "Friends" episode (you know, where Ross gets stuck in his leather pants), we have some good news: leather pants don't need to be tight! Take these wide-legged faux-leather pants ($78), for example. They have all the style and polish of the more fitted variety, but they leave plenty of space for you to move and breathe. And don't be intimidated by the brilliant green color. Just consider it a neutral, and match with other neutrals, like black, white, and gray.
Themoire Tia Metallic Faux-Leather Clutch Bag
We can't get enough of this gorgeous gilded clutch ($375). Made from sumptuously soft faux leather, it'll dress up your everyday jeans or pair perfectly with a black-tie gown for weddings and a cocktail dress for holiday parties. Simply toss in the essentials, fasten it up, and clip on the shoulder strap (if you want it), and you'll be on your way.
Miss Selfridge Faux Leather Cargo Pants
Delivering on style, comfort, and all-around cool, these faux leather cargo pants ($53) are soon to be the most reached-for item in your wardrobe. We love the flattering high-rise accented with an elastic waistband, the slouchy fit, and the ample pockets. Pair these pants with sneakers and a tee for more casual days, or dress them up with some heels. They're just that versatile.
Topshop Curve Faux Leather Skinny Pants in Black
If you are indeed looking for faux-leather skinny pants, this flattering high-rise pair ($71) will do the trick. With the comfort and versatility of a jegging and the style of real leather pants, they'll take you through fall and winter in style, seamlessly working with oversize sweaters, silky blouses, and casual tees.
Apparis Amara Vegan Leather Bucket Hat
It seems like every celebrity and off-duty model is sporting bucket hats these days. Join in on the trend with this faux-leather version ($78) that's perfect for fall dressing. With a flat crown and a structured brim, it'll add a little attitude to just about any outfit. Fully lined with polyester, it'll even keep you warm as the days grow chillier.
Topshop Leather Look Split Detail Mini Skirt in Black
Sometimes leather pants get all the love, but we're here for this chic faux-leather miniskirt ($41). With a high waist and a side slit, it'll make a statement whether you pair it with a white tee or a half-tucked sweater. We also love the leather-on-leather look here. Consider it the Canadian tuxedo with an edge.
