There is something about a leather jacket that can put a smile on your face as you walk down the street. The way it hangs over your outfit, fits your body, and just the feel of the material is enough to want one for every season. Of course, there are a few drawbacks to wearing real leather. The next time you are out shopping for a women's lightweight leather jacket you may want to consider taking the vegan approach and looking at the faux-leather options. Here are just a few reasons a leather looking jacket, such as from MAAXA, might be your best option.
Real leather is expensive. Unless you are wealthy, or want and need only one jacket for all occasions, all year, you may not be able to afford it. However, you can buy jackets that appear to be made of leather and have them in different colors, weights, and styles.
Faux leather is made to resist being stained. This means if you get something on it, not only will the substance not leave a mark, any water you use to remove it will not stain it either. You will not have to invest in costly leather cleaning supplies. The material is also fade-resistant. You will not have to worry about the color becoming uneven due to sunlight hitting one part more than the rest of the coat. You can drive or ride in a vehicle and your coat won't have one arm a lighter shade than the other.
Faux leather used to look fake. The only way to have something that looked great was to go with the real thing. However, technology has made many advancements in the look and feel of the materials used for leather looking jackets. Even if you are set on going with the real thing, take some time to peruse the faux options. You may discover you are pleasantly surprised to find it very difficult to tell the difference.
There is no doubt that a leather jacket is a wonderful addition to your wardrobe. However, if you can get the same look, feel, and fit from a faux leather jacket that is easier to maintain and saves you money, why not go for it? As an added bonus, when people, whether friends or not, comment on the cruelty to animals just to make you a coat, you can smile and tell them to think again, that it is only a leather look jacket.
