#ImWearingRI | Faux Leather

We love faux leather…faux real. Or PU if you’re fancy. High shine and high impact, it can level up any look. Want to see how? These babes have got your back. From shirts to trousers, see how they’re styling them (and they’re all wearing RI!)

The Coat

This one ticks not one but four of our boxes, it’s padded, faux leather, belted AND has a super cosy faux fur hood. So if you see us living in this for the rest of the season don’t be alarmed. We’ll be wearing with skinny jeans, black heels and sunnies.


The Shirt

If you buy one faux leather piece this AW, it has to be this. Coming in black, brown and khaki, it’s the layering piece you never knew you needed - we kind of want all three tbh. Wear over a roll neck and jeans or style up with wide leg trousers and heels…

The Trousers

We usually struggle with leather trousers (we all remember that Ross from Friends moment, right) They’re either too tight, too loose or shrink in the heat. Not these. With a paperbag waist and tapered leg, they’re super flattering. Wear with trainers and a tee or a cami and heels. 

The Skirt

Think pencil skirts are just for the office? Think again. We’re just a little bit obsessed with this faux leather midi skirt. Just add a cute white milk maid top, court shoes and a matching black bag. Date night just got (a lot more) interesting.

The Shorts

As we move into AW, shorts might not be the top of your to-buy list. But stick with us on this one. Faux leather shorts with a cute white top, hat and cowboy boots is a lewk (if we do say so ourselves). And if you get a bit chilly, throw on a chunky knit. Sorted.
