Vegan Leather Fall Style With BB Dakota & Free People

Fall is here and it is unarguably the best season to flaunt leather and faux leather pieces. Free People and BB Dakota are just a few brands that we turn to for comfortable and stylish faux leather pieces in ultra realistic sheen. Leather looks are super chic and sexy while also providing a fun texture to work into your looks, but leathers can be tricky to wear in certain seasons-- but not fall! Since the material is not highly breathable it can be too hot to wear in the summer, but the sleek texture can also take on the chill of a very cold winter day. In the more temperate autumn season however, leather fabrics are a great choice since the thicker material wards off a slight breeze or chill and speaks to the more luxurious textures of fall fashion. While we often think of leather for classic moto style jackets, it can also be used in more unexpected ways to create the ultimate fall dresses, tops, and leggings. Take on a sleek and edgy look this fall with biker chic leather pieces.
A good leather-look jacket is an essential for fall that will complete any autumnal look you can imagine. Pair this faux leather BB Dakota jacket with jeans during the day, edge up your evening look by wearing it over a nice mini dress, achieve cozy layers when you add it over a sweater, or throw it on with leggings and a tee-shirt to pull a casual look together. There are infinite ways to wear a moto jacket making this piece a great investment for the season that you’ll be reaching for every day. Available in a gorgeous deep olive green and a pretty creamy beige, these two seasonal shades will bring some extra style into any fall outfit. The sleek olive green shade looks amazing with black jeans and darker tones, such as a rich chestnut brown scarf and a deep burgundy lipstick. The lighter beige color is stunning with a fall floral dress and booties and brings a softer side into the leather moto jacket look, which often is thought of as a tougher look. The draping lapel front of this style is angular and feminine at the same time bringing both structural and gracefully draped elements into the look simultaneously for an elegant and fashionable appeal that you’ll want to wear with all your fall outfits.
Leather is often synonymous with “edgy” and this studded faux leather dress from Annabelle the Collection is just the piece to combine edgy and chic into one stellar style. Available in classic black or this fun oxblood red, this vegan leather dress makes a statement that is full of sass and attitude in an utterly feminine way. The A-line skirt adds fluidity and movement to the dress which the stiff leathery fabric wouldn’t achieve alone, while cap sleeves and a fitted waistline complete the ladylike silhouette. However, this feminine fit is entirely offset by the slick leather fabric accentuated with silver studs in an angular and severe square pattern. The striking juxtaposition of fierce and feminine works seamlessly in this design for a dress that says, ‘I’m confident and womanly and I own it.’ Going for an all-leather look like a dress takes a bit of confidence and boldness, but is actually quite easy to pull off with a flawless fit and flare dress doing all the work for you, just add booties and some silver jewelry to complete the look.
A black leather mini skirt is such a badass classic that every girl should have in her wardrobe for a fun twist on fall style or a sexier look on a night out. This Free People black vegan leather mini features flattering vertical seaming and a zipper in the back for a few stylistic updates to the classic mini skirt style. This fitted skirt looks darling with a chunky knit sweater and booties on a daytime outing, or wear it with a plaid flannel shirt and tall boots for a casual coffee date, and then dress it up later with a silky top and heels for an ensemble that will wow at night. Free People is always on top of the trends with their vegan leather styles, and this realistic looking material with a matte finish and slightly textured crinkle give the appearance of the real deal without having to harm any animals in the making so you can feel good in this piece no matter what. Perfect for showing off your legs now, pair it with black tights later in the fall for a chic and seasonable approach to chilly-weather dressing.
A collection of leather looks is not complete without mentioning the ultra sexy and fun trend of leather leggings, like this stunning pair from Free People. With similar versatility to a leather skirt, these vegan leggings can be worn with an oversized sweater and booties for a chic travel look, or dressed up with a plunging silk blouse and high heels for a night out on the town. What’s even better about a leathery legging is that they appeal to not just the young and leggy, but to women of all ages and types who want to bring a little bit more of an edgy and chic look into their fall wardrobe. We love the slimming effect these black leggings have as they hug the body, with a comfortable stretchy fabric and flattering seams along the waist. These leggings are a great alternative to pants by making your looks both dressier and trendier all at once to easily complete even the simplest of outfits.


Leathery tops are also a great addition to the fall wardrobe, and this studded piece by Annabelle the Collection is a fierce option for day or night. We love this look with skinny jeans and black lace up sandals for an early fall day full of busy meetings and appointments. With rows of silver studs running from shoulder to hem on glossy black vegan leather, the biker babe look is edgy and chic in all the right ways. Short sleeves and a relaxed fit will make this faux leather top a style staple with both jeans and skirts all season long. Adding this top to your wardrobe is an easy way to bring a touch of sleek leathery texture into your looks that is both classy and a little bit bold, yet oh so easy to wear. Just throw it on with jeans and your favorite black shoes for an effortless ensemble that looks instantly chic with minimal effort. In this look you will be ready to take on the fall season with style, just grab yourself a pumpkin spice latte and you’re unstoppable!
