Vegan leather, better known as pleather, is an emerging industry and cleaning Godsend (it’s waterproof!). The fashion trend is made of plastic, cork, and kelp which are available in moto, cropped, black, and color so there’s no need to hold back your fashion dreams when you’re wearing one of these baddies. Of course, quality and longevity depend on how much you want to spend, but unlike leather, there’s no need to pay a pretty penny in this fashion advice.

Check out this fashion advice on the upside to leather alternatives.

If you love the look of a leather jacket but can’t bring yourself to ethically buy real leather, consider purchasing vegan leather instead when you’re on a search for a new moto jacket with these fashion tips. Check out our fashion tips!

3. Endless shapes: The variety of vegan leather styles means there’s a perfect fit for every body type. For men, the jackets extenuate border shoulders while women’s jackets are styled to show off a narrow waist, curves, or long legs. From flared to fit, there are endless options of shapes and thus endless ways to project an image with a single coat.

4. Low maintenance: Vegan leather is waterproof, especially compared to its counterpart. If your climate runs wet, you should have absolutely no problem maintaining your jacket. However, if the sun is hot and the air arid, then products are made to protect the faux leather against sun rays. These products also have the added effect of softening your new jacket.

5. It’s more affordable: Vegan leather is more affordable than traditional leather, even the higher-end options. You may pay $45 dollars as opposed to $328 for a classic biker style jacket with vegan leather, leaving you more cash to find the perfect boots or jeans to pair with your new statement piece!
