As winter slowly rolls into spring, we’re gradually getting to that weather that isn’t bitingly cold but not hot enough to move around in flimsy linen pants. While jeans are a staple wardrobe and a comfortable choice, faux leather pants and leggings are an excellent choice too. They’re comfortable, trendy, and luxurious-looking without having to break your bank.
What is faux leather?
Faux leather is a synthetic fabric made to look like the real thing both in appearance and texture. It is commonly made using a fabric base treated with wax, dye, or polyurethane to replicate the sleek leather look and feel.
Faux leather used to be easily spotted as it was vastly different from real leather. Even though the difference is still easy to spot (texture and smell), faux leather has made itself a worthy alternative to genuine leather. So it doesn’t compete against the real thing like it used to.
Benefits of faux leather
– It is affordable
Unlike its more expensive counterpart, faux leather is quite affordable, and that’s because producing faux leather is less complicated than making real leather.
– It is comfortable
Faux leather is often lined with soft fabrics and made soft and supple, resulting in an overall incredibly comfortable fabric. It is less stiff but still as stylish and thus gives the wearer a comfortable experience without looking bland.
– It is durable
Modern faux leather is exceptionally durable as its surface is less prone to cracking or marring from scrapes and scratches. If properly cared for, faux leather can last you a long time.
