When you think of leather outfits, your mind probably goes to motorcycle gangs or the movie Grease. But leather has evolved and can be a classy way to add a little fun to your closet. Not to mention, it’s back in style in a big way.
When styled properly, leather doesn’t have to be gaudy. As for the other drawbacks that might have kept you from buying leather in the past– like its reputation for being uncomfortable and cruel to animals– we’ve made sure that our pieces address those concerns.
Vegan leather is about to change your wardrobe for the better. Here are four reasons why you should shop our new vegan leather pieces ASAP.
1. No Animals Were Harmed in the Making of This Leather
One of the biggest priorities for us in sourcing quality faux leather items was ensuring that they weren’t made from animal hides. It’s the 21st century, and we all know where leather comes from. If you don’t know how real leather is sourced, trust us when we tell you not to look it up. There’s nothing chic about animal cruelty, and that’s why we offer vegan leather in our online shop.
As a conscious consumer, buying leather can be an emotional minefield. Whether it’s on your shoes, purse, or pants, no one wants that sort of moral crisis on their conscience. When you buy leather products from Affordable Chic, you can be sure that you aren’t contributing to systemic animal cruelty. There are some things we just won’t do for fashion, and harming animals is one of them.
Vegan leather is as gorgeous as the real stuff, and it feels good to know that it isn’t causing harm to our animals and environment.
2. Vegan Leather Can Be Part of an Affordable Outfit
Real leather items can cost up to hundreds– even thousands– of dollars per piece. At Affordable Chic, we’re committed to finding the highest quality items at the best price. Who wants to spend $500+ on a pair of pants? We know that for you, that money is better spent elsewhere.
Each piece in our leather collection is under $100. We believe that you deserve to get the high-end look without sacrificing your priorities to do it. Leather is back in vogue, and we want you to get in on the fun.
3. The Material is More Comfortable Than You Think
The leather of our youth was stiff, heavy, and not very breathable. You may even remember that classic scene from the show Friends where one of the main characters gets stuck in a restroom because they can’t get their leather pants back on.
We don’t believe in the old adage that beauty is pain. Actually, we think you’re your most beautiful and best self when you feel good and comfortable in your skin. That feeling translates to how you look on the outside!
That’s why it was so important to us to find leather pieces that are soft and comfortable. What’s the point of wearing clothes that you dread putting on? These items are comfortable enough to sit down, stand up, do a little dance, or jog to catch the subway. You probably won’t want to take them off, but we promise that if you do, you won’t have any issues getting them back on!
4. It Lives Up to Our Standard of Chic
If you picture Sandy from Grease, head to toe in leather, smoking her cigarette when you think of leather outfits– you’re behind on the times!
At one time this was the way to style leather, but now your leather pieces can add texture and class to your work outfits or formal wear. Look at any of our leather pieces and how we style them on our models. Each one looks classy and elegant.
Look at our Cognac Skirt, for example. We paired it with a modest top and sleek, black shoes. Our Bordeaux Skirt was paired with fun pumps and a sensible button-up blouse. The Black Leather Pants were styled with a simple black jacket.
Each look is slightly different, but all of them are classic outfits that you could wear every day, whether to work or to an event. Modern womanhood is all about balance, and we know these pieces will help you balance fun with sensibility, elegance with power, and classic with modern.
What’s so great about vegan leather is the opportunity to make it your own. It’s a blank canvas for your creativity. If you’re going for a more edgy look, these pieces can achieve it. If you want to go for something more classic and elevated, they can do that, too. It’s all in the way you wear them.
You really can’t go wrong with our vegan leather items. The price is right, they feel good on your body, and no animals had to suffer for us to get them to you. We call that a win/win/win.
