Fall Trends on the Off-Price Market: Faux Leather

Off-price retailers have done an amazing job of shifting their image.  Remember back in the day when we had to be especially picky in those stores, sifting through items from last season and irregulars?  Today, you can step into any off-price store and find what’s hot right now.

Faux leather and leather is projected to be huge this Fall.  I was pleased, then, to walk into a local Ross Dress for Less store and spot a huge collection of chic dresses with leather accents.  And, get this?  They were all by amazing designers and under $30!

I’m embracing the leather trend this year for the first time.  So, in preparation for Fall, I snagged a little black dress with faux leather raglan sleeves and faux leather panels at the sides.   It was a steal, too, at just $22.99 (compare at $69).

If you’re in St. Louis, I found the dress in the Ross at 190 THF Blvd in Chesterfield.
