As in, buttery soft.

Full disclosure: I love juicy burgers way too much to ever go vegan.  But, I have plenty of friends who hold their vegan values to the highest standard, and I’ve heard their pain when it comes to finding quality (and cute!) faux leather fashion.

With fall officially upon us, a leather jacket is a must for vegans and non-vegans alike! It’s a classic wardrobe addition that pairs equally well with feminine dresses or ripped jeans.

In this spirit of inclusivity, I’ve rounded up some of the cutest vegan leather jackets on the market. These pieces look and feel like the real deal. Just for fun: ask your leather-wearing friends if they can tell the difference. We won’t tell if you don’t!
