This season, the faux fur and faux leather trends are full throttle. With the weather cooling down, it’s the perfect time to bring the heat while rocking this animal-friendly, celebrity favorite trends. 

How to Wear Faux Fur


Wearing a faux fur jacket is hands down the easiest way to make any outfit look chic. Colorful furry jackets have taken the fashion scene by storm for the past few seasons. Even some of the most high-end designers are rocking them, including Gucci, Helmut Lang, and Miu Miu. Traditionally, fur jackets and coats were typically worn by either rich socialites or older women with a lot of money. However, designers decided it was time to make the fur look more accessible and debuted faux fur on the runway a few years back, and the trend has been a hit ever since. In 2017, the trend has evolved with the addition of bright pops of color and different textures of faux fur.


Now that faux fur jackets have become more accessible, anyone can rock one and look chic. Faux fur can turn the simplest of outfits into a full-on fashion statement. Wear it with a pair of ripped jeans, booties, and a simple neutral colored top and automatically look like a rockstar.

We love the pairing of accessories to jazz up the outfit even more. You can do this by adding a chic pair of sunglasses, statement necklace, and even a trendy beret with a faux fur pom-pom. You will surely turn heads and look like a fashion it-girl. 

How to Wear Faux Leather


Just like faux fur, faux leather is also a key trend this season. Many high-end fashion labels are embracing faux leather in various styles. Vinyl pants are all the rage this season but can be a tricky trend to pull off. Vinyl is the faux version of patent leather and can be worn if you are looking for an edgy, rocker chic look. Wearing vinyl pants with a cool graphic tee, a bomber jacket, and a colorful pair of sunglasses will make you look like a grungy fashionista.

Fashion it-girls were pulling off the vinyl pants look all throughout Fall 2017 fashion week. Pairing vinyl pants with a concert t-shirt, a bomber jacket, and colorful sunglasses is the ultimate way to make a statement with this trend.

You can also rock the faux leather pants trend with an accompanying faux leather jacket. To look like the ultimate style queen, add a slogan t-shirt to the mix, another trend that was super big on the runways this year. Spice up the outfit with some colored sunglasses and get ready for all eyes to look your way.
