Pleather Weather (Part I)

Happy Saturday!! Happy Weekend!!

So how is December treating you guys? Here in Kolkata the weather is amazing at this time. Nice sweet winters. Of late i have been really liking Faux Leathers or Pleather. I have always liked how Leather clothes or accessories look upon wearing, personally I would not buy one. There are many reasons to that. The first being pure leather is very expensive, Secondly "the Cruelty" factor bothers me somewhere in my heart.
On the other hand, if we look at Pleather, there are quite a few fact that makes it more alluring. Pleather is incredibly luxurious the way it wears over time. It is lighter than real leather. Does not crease and travels really well. Moreover it is waterproof and hence it has a longer life than leather and is a much more low maintenance item than its counterpart.If we think about the versatility of the fabric, it can be used to sew bodycon dresses as well which requires precision in cut. For aesthetic purposes or functionality Faux Fur or Real Fur can also be added depending upon one's choice. I would say, unlike real leather, the technology in making pleather can be suited according to one's design and preference, making it a more versatile and design friendly fabric in a much more affordable budget.

These days I have been wearing Pleather almost every other day and hence thought of styling a Pleather Leggings in five different ways for this post. I have divided this post into two parts. In the first part there will be two Looks and in the second part the other three Looks.

Look# 1

Animal prints with Leather goes really well. Hence for the first look I thought of going the Biker Chic way with animal print and pleather.

Boots - Charles & Keith
Jacket & Leggings - Sheinside
Top - Faballey
On My Lips - M.A.C Relentlessly Red
On My Nails - Models Own Srwaberry Tart

Look# 2

This season The Batwing Cardigans are really making a hype and I am totally crushing over them. I had been on a lookout for the perfect one until I found this one in Closet Diaries, an online store here in India. I love this one coz its batwing(ofcourse) and is neutral in colour(making it more wearable with many other clothes), and it has  Faux Fur detail which makes it look super gorgeous. So, for the second look I paired my Pleather leggings with this Cardigan. Threw in the most Staple Chambray shirt worn here with some silver jewelleries and neutral accessories.
