As summer starts to wind down, we're getting excited about the outfit opportunities that come with cooler weather. We love the layers, the textures and the richness of fall fabrics. And after seeing faux leather take over the 2021 runways we can't wait to dive into the trend. Luckily we can start right now, since leather is perfect for the summer-to-fall transition. Today's faux-leather fabrics look like the real deal, but they usually cost a lot less and feel much more flexible. This season brings a range of styles and silhouettes, so there's truly something for everyone.

1. Jackets

Whether your closet is full of denim or dresses, a faux-leather jacket will fit right in. A cropped moto is eternally cool, while a classic trench pulls any look together. For a modern take, try a slouchy shirt-jacket.

2. Dresses & Skirts

Faux leather always has an edge, but it can be surprisingly versatile too. This season brings styles you can take to the office and out on the town—just look for clean lines and neutral hues.

3. Pants

Faux-leather leggings have been a staple for a while now, and we're excited to see the trend expand to high-waist and wide-leg silhouettes. Play up the proportions with snug knits, or tuck in a white blouse for some serious polish.    

4. Bags

From sleek totes to tough-chic crossbody bags to candy-colored clutches, accessories are a fun way to try the trend. They're usually easy on the budget too, so you don't have to choose just one.
