Fall 2013 Fashion Trends: (Faux) Leather

Leather was a huge trend last fall, continued into spring, and is back again.  While leather has been a perennial fall favorite for years, this season, colored leathers are a big trend.

I’m not one to wear leather.  As a vegetarian and animal rights supporter, I prefer to let animals wear their own skin.  Thankfully, there are a ton of “vegan” or non-leather alternatives to leather that offer the same slick feel without the questionable ethics.

Deep blues, greens, burgundies, and pinks are big color trends for leather and faux leather this season.

Of course, black leather will always be a stylish option, so you can’t go wrong.
