I have been so impressed by all the gorgeous, high-quality vegan leather jackets on the market this season! I have #6 and #10 and I’m obsessed with them both. I also have another from H&M that I bought last year that I love and get compliments on all the time. Number 5 is this year’s version from H&M and it looks just as cute. I wore my H&M vegan leather jacket all the time last year and it’s held up so well. You’ll definitely find me wearing it this year too. I hope that this list will show you how fashionable vegan leather can be.
4| Stone Brown Faux Suede Jacket (only $70)
5| Biker Jacket with Quilted Details (only $50)
7| Drapey Vegan Leather Jacket (multiple colors)
9| Lightweight Asymmetrical Vegan Leather Jacket (multiple colors)
And some food for thought: People tend to think that real leather is more expensive than vegan/faux leather because it is in some way inherently better than vegan leather or other man made fabrics. But that’s truly not the case. Genuine leather is not inherently better. It’s inherently skin. Genuine leather is more expensive because of the cost of creating it. Real leather isn’t made in a factory. It’s made in a womb. And then it is born and raised and must be cared for (albeit in horrible conditions) for years before it can be turned into your new leather jacket, shoes or bag. Real leather is expensive because a full life has to be created and cared for in order to make it. And this process is not only taxing on the animal, but taxing on the planet as well. The real reason that genuine leather is more expensive than faux is because raising animals takes time and money. And it also takes a life.
