Look 4: Leather Jacket

Investing in a faux leather jacket is like adding a versatile powerhouse to your wardrobe arsenal. Not only does it exude an edgy and stylish vibe, but it also offers the perfect blend of durability. Faux leather, also called “eco-leather”, does not have any element of animal origin – it’s entirely made from industrial material e.g. PVC or plastic. Plus, this adds a fashion-forward flair to any outfit.
