It is definitely a litmus test for us fashionistas who advocate sustainable vegan fashion when we must pick between those gorgeous leather jackets and winter wear otherwise. And while we all know that high street fashion is incomplete without those leather coats and boots, the good news is that there is always faux leather that comes to your sartorial rescue. Just as chic looking as real leather, faux leather also keeps you warm, guard you against those rebel winds.
