5 Super Cool Items You Won’t Believe Are Faux Leather

Fake it till you make it with our selection of on-trend faux leather pieces.



If you love the look of leather but can’t bring yourself to wear it – either because it’s expensive or you’re vegan – you can still pull off this perennially cool look by going faux. Celebs love going faux, from Lizzo to Hailey Bieber and Kendall Jenner. The trick to pulling off faux leather is to keep it low-key by focusing basic silhouettes like straight trousers and to look for a quality finish that’s not shiny and won’t crack. Faux suede is also easy to pull off – and much easier to clean than the real thing!

Our guest stylist, Irene Feeney takes us through her styling tips for all things leather, pleather and faux – in the video below.
