Faux Real Leather: Looks for Less


Certain items are fashion perennials, in the sense that every year they reappear and never quite go out of style.  In honor of the upcoming holiday season, and the large amount of shopping you’ll likely do, I’ll be identifying some faux/real looks at a variety of price points to keep you in style and hopefully in the black.

There is something about leather pants that I am so into this season, and at the right price and fit, I would definitely go for this trend.  No longer relegated to rock and roll groupies and motorcycle babes, this trend is here to stay.  Even the GAP is deeming leather the new denim

The first “save” option is from Blank Denim NYC (at Piperlime).  While not really leather, and not even faux leather or pleather, Blank makes a great fitting, low price five pocket jean and is on trend with the sheen and slick look.

In the “splurge” category is the 901 Coated Legging from J Brand.  I have worn and loved many pairs of J Brand jeans, and I will testify they do make a fabulous fitting jean, and if you’re going for the leather look, it is very exciting to not have to compromise on comfort for style.

In the “savings account” category we have the Lambskin Leather Skinny from J Brand.  This is the 8001 series fit, a mid-rise skinny, and for extra biker edge with an ankle zipper.  All leather, J Brand is deeming these luxury redefined.

Would you wear leather this season?  And is it something you would be willing to splurge on?
