Leather Outfit Ideas
Let’s face it, leather outfits either look naturally hardcore or forcefully overeager.
Striking that balance is incredibly tricky thanks to leather presenting a fashion Catch-22.
Leather always makes a bold fashion statement.
Loudly. This is what made the fabric timeless.
Unfortunately, modern fashion trends typically discount outfits that, well, make such loud and brash fashion statements. And that’s before we even reach the uncomfortable question of animal cruelty.
Luckily, the faux leather renaissance solves all these problems.
Clearly animal-friendly, faux leather is also synthetic, meaning its color, shape, and maintenance properties can yield contemporary pieces with subtler looks.
If separating the real from the fake faux leather looks is giving you trouble, we’ve got you covered head to toe.

The Best Faux Leather Outfits Ideas
Check out the best pieces to round out some truly stunning and stylish leather outfits!
Best Faux Leather Outfit Pieces
Women’s Faux Leather Outfits
Faux Leather Blazer Shirt Jacket: Blank NYC
When most people think leather, they’ll think of traditional leather jackets evocative of the motorcycle era.
Sometimes this isn’t always suitable, as casual get togethers, work, or family gatherings (at least if you have traditional parents like mine!) call for more a conservative approach.
That’s why this faux leather jacket from Blank NYC, with its extra length and relaxed style, is a great outerwear piece for any faux leather wardrobe!
Faux Leather Jacket: BB Dakota
While we love the oversized casual leather jacket featured, above, everyone needs a solid leather moto jacket.
This BB Dakota women’s moto jacket comes with a neat twist as the washed fabric hardly resembles its source material at first glance!
However, the notched lapels, off-center zip closure, and classic collar evoke the classic motorcycle jackets of old while retaining a modern look that can go with any outfit!
Faux Leather Skirt: Bishop + Young
Traditionally leather has been the provenance of cold weather and bundled up fall outfits, but one of the coolest things about fashion is that boundaries are always being redefined.
The Bishop + Young faux leather skirt does just that. Cut like a typical miniskirt with a concealed side zip closure, this cotton and synthetic blended miniskirt will provide long-lasting comfort along with a smart and fresh look!
Faux Leather Leggings: Spanx
Leggings have exploded in popularity thanks to the athleisure phenomenon, and faux leather leggings are a great way to ride this trend with a unique, shiny look.
What I love most about these Spanx moto leggings is the eye-catching texture that will definitely make waves in an endless sea of plain, vanilla leggings!
Faux Leather Pants: Levi’s
One of the outfits I dread planning most is the work outfit.
How do I maintain a professional appearance without wearing the same clothes over. And over. And over again?
Well, these faux leather pants from Levi’s do the trick quite nicely. Cut and finished to look like sharp work pants, the faux leather version can add some much-needed variety to your office wardrobe!
