Leather Trends for Women

When the temperature drops, the layering potential increases, and that’s where outfit greatness is born. There’s a fun and ease about dressing
for spring and summer, of course, but the fall and winter seasons add in a whole new layer (pun intended) of playing with different fabrics and textures.
Which brings us to the timeless closet staple we can’t get enough of right now: faux leather.

“Faux leather adds such a cool
and edgy vibe. You can dress
it up or down and that is
essential when transitioning
into cooler weather!”

Faux Leather Trend

Whether it’s a statement piece, accessory or full head-to-toe look, the leather trend always delivers on the cool factor. Ahead, we’ll answer some
common style questions and share tips on incorporating faux leather in your everyday wardrobe.

Express Leather Jackets

Are leather jackets still in fashion?


Yes! After all, every “It” girl has at least one leather jacket
in her possession for a reason. It’s chic, it’s versatile and
it feels at-home just about anywhere. Every season, new
iterations of the classic silhouette are brought to the
forefront à la the street style scene. An oversized black
faux leather jacket is always a good move, along with
hardware-adorned moto and bomber jackets.


What type of leather skirts are trending?



Long A-line leather skirts are a favorite for the season,
and with their chic, effortless feel, it’s easy to see why.
Simply pair with one of our mock neck Body Contour tops
and boots for a look that transitions from office to happy
hour in a snap. If you’d prefer to lean into the mini
moment, try a high waisted faux leather mini skirt styled
with layered tops in a monochrome palette.

Can I wear faux-leather leggings if I’m
over 50?


Yes, you can! It just comes down to how you style them.
Let the leather leggings be a focal point, and keep the
rest of your outfit toned-down and neutral. We
recommend flowier tops, oversized sweaters, tailoring
and classic outerwear silhouettes.
