Leather outfits have moved from the runways and into the mainstream and are one of 2022’s major trends. But this doesn’t mean that you have to splash all your cash on the real deal. Vegan leather is an ethical and affordable alternative and vegan-leather outfits can look just as high-end as their authentic counterparts.
Look on-trend AND expensive! Here are six vegan-leather outfits that look luxe but won’t break the bank.
Look #1: Cover Yourself in Camel
Brown in all shades is the warm neutral we all need to be wearing more of! This popular leather colour goes with everything and can be dressed up or down. Pair a neutral vegan-leather suit with contrasting leather accessories for a hot, head-to-toe look.
Nude top, boots, bag and hat available at Cotton On.
Look #2: Incorporate Knit Textures
Is there anything more comfortable than a cosy pullover in winter? Knits can also elevate your style game by adding texture as well as a pop of colour. This monotone look highlights the contrast between the wool and the vegan leather and is easy to wear and to rock!

When it comes to expensive-looking vegan-leather outfits, don’t be afraid to step away from the neutrals and play with colour. This matching set is a 2022 take on the conventional shirt-and-skirt combination and, when paired with knee-high boots, is the perfect transitional look.

Look #4 Supersize Your Shopper
This look incorporates two leather trends: colour and size! Look for vegan leather items in interesting colours rather than just natural hues. Add a bag – such as this on-trend oversized shopper – with a different type of leather finish to create some contrast.

Look #5: Oversized Blazer
An oversized, structured blazer is a wardrobe must-have! This versatile item – best purchased in shades that can be easily matched – can be worn over sweat tops and knits to pull your look together. If you want to emphasize your shape, add a belt at your waist to cinch it.

Look #6: Marry Your Skirt + Boots
