Trend of The Week – Leatherette!

This Seasons’ Sexiest – Leatherette

Who hasn’t jumped on the leather trend this season? There was a time, when leather use to be so expensive and only really suited for skinny supermodels!

But NOW times have changed!

This season you’re in luck…Although leather is still very expensive, you can get your hands on something very comparable AND cheaper.

The difference between leather and leatherette is simple.Leatherette is an artificial leather with a leather-like” finish to it, it’s made by covering fabric with plastic, which then undergoes a process where it’s covered by vinyl which is a type of plastic. Versus leather which is made from animal hide.

Although leather owns many pros, it also has its cons. The quality and longevity of leather is unmatched by leatherette. But as we know…quality comes with a hefty price and if you’re animal conscious leatherette will look awfully attractive to you!

While the quality of leatherette doesn’t hold up to actual leather, you can undoubtedly find some great leatherette looks that are less expensive and being that it’s made mostly from plastic there will be a great stretch!
