NYFW Street Style Is Making A Major Case For Vegan Leather

Seleen Saleh

Fall and Winter trends are all about texture. Whether chunky knits, cozy wool coats, or buttery leather silhouettes, the sky’s the limit when it comes to timeless cold-weather classics. This season, consider trading in some of your Winter wardrobe essentials for those of the faux leather variety, like this season's NYFW street style stars. The elegant material is an easy way to amp up your look. It has a way of making every outfit look elevated from loose-fitting jeans to chunky knits.

If the street style crew at New York Fashion Week has anything to say about it, they're standing in support of the faux leather look this winter. From boots to trench coats, high-waisted pants to cascading miniskirts, this season brought out more leather-clad looks than ever before — and a street style favorite, faux leather leggings, is just $30 on Amazon right now.

Not only has faux leather emerged as a major trend this past week, but it’s also shown up in every color of the rainbow. Show goers are hitting the streets in deep forest green, bright neon pink, and rich burgundy faux leather pieces — alongside the typical black and camel neutrals.

Ahead, find some of the best faux leather looks at New York Fashion Week, straight from street style photographer Seleen Saleh.
