It’s the buttery texture of leather—vegan options, specifically—that makes any ensemble seem somehow cooler, bolder, and more impressive than outfits without it. The material lends shine and sleekness without feeling too formal, and best yet, so many of the options for leathery styles on the market are incredibly comfortable, too. That said, you may need a quick refresher on how to wear the timeless fabric. Far beyond leather jackets (a timeless staple we love), the standout material is popular across pretty much all style categories these days, leaving you with exciting options no matter your aesthetic.

As we head further into fall and winter, where leather’s heavier quality makes it a practical fashion choice, we suggest updating your wardrobe by way of the seven leather outfits below. Beginners may want to start by merely swapping leathery trousers in for looks where you’d typically reach for denim, while those who crave something bolder can try head-to-toe leather in a matching set or a statement piece of outerwear in animal print. Ahead, find the impactful leather outfit approach that best suits you.

Contrast with Knitwear
