AUTUMN TREND: HELL BENT FAUX LEATHER

FAUX LEATHER SHORTS - ZARA (OLD)

FAUX LEATHER SHORTS - ZARA (OLD)

…………And just like that Summer has come to an end!! It seems like Autumn couldn’t wait to show herself. In the first few days of September the temperature dropped quite significantly, at least here in the U.K. it did. But with the changing of the seasons comes the opportunity to revamp your wardrobe. You don’t necessarily have to purchase new items. Take for instance the faux leather shorts I’m wearing in the main picture. I have had them for over 5 years. They are a classic example of buying items that don’t date and that stand the test of time. They also tap into the faux leather trend and the trend of shopping your closet - wearing and restyling items in your wardrobe instead of being a slave to fast fashion. Or you can transition Summer items to get a little more wear out of them so that you get value for money.

However you know I couldn’t resist the opportunity to let you know what is on offer in the shops should you decide you do want to treat yourself to something or a few things to celebrate the changing of the seasons. One of the biggest trends for Autumn is leather and it’s equally stylish cousin faux leather. In fact these days with the advances in technology and design it can sometimes be difficult to tell the difference between the two. While leather and faux leather clothing is nothing new, the difference now is that these materials are now being used for dresses, shirts, skirts and trousers, with different silhouettes. There are so many pieces available and this post is all about my top picks from various retailers.
