As we get deeper into the fall season, our leather moto jackets and leggings are put on heavy rotation in our wardrobes. But this season, a new leather (and faux leather!) style is here — and it’s proving to be worth a top spot in our closets.
Enter: The leather dress. And we’re not talking about the ultra-sexy, skintight bodycon styles that are usually associated with leather dresses. We’re talking about this season’s refined, sophisticated and chic silhouettes such as shirt dresses, wrap dresses, sheath and A-line dresses. Real leather dresses from high-end fashion designers and brands have made the look one of fall’s biggest trends.
But real leather dresses are expensive, not to mention that faux and vegan leather styles are kinder to the environment. Thankfully, the fashion world is moving more toward sustainability and eco-friendly production, and as a result, there are many stylish and budget-friendly faux leather options out there.
If you’re looking to give this fashion trend a try, here are our favorite faux leather dress styles that can help you rock the look for less. These options feel just as luxe and expensive as real leather, but go for a fraction of the price.
