Fall ’13 Trends: Vegan Leather

vegan-leather
Cute & fuzzy animal lovers rejoice, vegan leather is on the rise this season. Faux leather has migrated from boots and bags to the main event. This season, expect to see large doses of the animal-friendly fabric, covering everything from trims to tanks. Not the vegan type? You’ll still dig two features faux has over the real thing: wash-ability and a reduced footprint (on your wallet). We love the edge it adds to otherwise girly styles and silhouettes…making for a perfect (and sometimes perforated) balance.
