The deeper we get into fall, the more infatuated I become with faux leather and this season’s top trend: metal detailing.
– SHOP THE LOOK –
Personally, I’ve never laid eyes on a faux leather skirt that’s caught my attention let alone that fits my body right. I can be particular with fabrics and textures, faux leather being a tricky one as some can look worn out, low quality, and smell funny (I know I’m not the only one who’s sniffed this scent before). Whether faux or real, leather is definitely worth the right investment.
Being a true sucker for pencil skirts, I instantly knew this Calvin Klein faux leather skirt was a winner. With an elasticized waistband that hugs the waist nicely and gold metal detailing, it certainly gives a stunning, chic appeal. Sticking to the metal detail trend, pairing this plaid top with its gold front buttons firmly tucked in was a no-brainer. Does the crossbody purse look familiar? I wore this cute faux leather bag during London Fashion Week (see here) there’s something about the dual metal hoops that adds a touch of sophistication to such simplicity.
After finding a faux leather piece that was worth a small investment, I cannot wait to see what other leather gems I find.
