I tend to dress more masculine than feminine, but I love the way the Charles by Charles David nude pumps and Cuyana tote balance out the tough side of the all black, rips, and leather jacket. Adding a bit of a soft palette to this look really helps balance it out. And I mean, you can never go wrong with a black and nude combination.

I don’t know about you, but once the temps start dropping I’m always looking to add more faux leather to my wardrobe. Leather is weather and holiday appropriate and one of the best things to wear to transform and elevate your outfit. Because faux leather has been on my radar, I’ve rounded up some of the best from around the web. I most definitely will be adding this pair pants to my closet (it has amazing reviews), I could not recommend this light jacket enough (incredibly soft and good quality), and I’ve heard great things about this number. And, how great would this dress be for a holiday party or date night?

Have you picked up any faux leather pieces this season yet?
