Leather & Suede Plus-Size Clothing Report
[Faux Leather & Suede Below]

Genuine leather and suede are luxury materials popular in the cooler months. Leather jackets and outerwear are the easiest to find in plus-sizes with style options frequently available even in extended plus-sizes larger than 24. Leather pants, skirts and dresses can be much more difficult to find in larger sizes unless a particular leather look is trending that year.  Fall 2014 is seeing leather trim, details and the occasional leather skirt, dress, and pants in the mainstream trends, making options other than jackets more easily obtainable.

Pleather, or faux leather, is increasingly popular, especially in trendier looks. The quality has improved dramatically with some big name designer diffiusion labels choosing to use it rather than the more expensive genuine leathers.  Some consumers choose pleather for animal rights and ethical reasons, while others prefer the lower price points and ease of care.

Most leather is made from cattle with lambskin a much softer and more luxurious option used in higher end garments.  Patent leather has a high gloss finish which is usually achieved with a plastic finish.

High end designer options are increasingly available in both genuine leather and faux leather as more and more consumers become environmentally and ethically conscious.

BoHo looks often incorporate suede or brown leather, rather than black.  While those preferring a sleek, modern classic look will often opt for black.  Trendy looks will sometimes incorporate other colors of leather and suede.

Leather and suede boots in wide-widths and with a wide-calf have their own shopping section.

Shopping Resources for Plus-Size Leather and Suede Fashion

For the best quality, the upscale department stores are still the best resources.  Both genuine leather and faux leathers can appear in even the most expensive garments, so be sure to read fabric content carefully.  Nordstrom usually has the deepest and best collection of leather jackets and coats in the fall, with some fur and fur trimmed options often appearing in the winter months.  Macy's provides a slightly less expensive, but good quality inventory of chic outerwear including (faux) leather options.  Bloomingdale's has a smaller inventory, but is the department store most likely to carry leather dresses, skirts, pants and jackets from upscale labels such as Marina Rinaldi and Lafayette 148.

Metrostyle offers one of the most affordable collections of genuine leather in sizes up to 18 / 20.   Colored leather and trendy styles are not unusual here.  QVC is another especially good resource for genuine leather and suede at more moderate prices.  Styles are contemporary to trendy, and installment payment plans can bring these pricier items well within budget.  Most everything is available in their full size range of 0 to 28W.

For trendy, faux pieces look to Fast Fashion retailers such as Forever 21 and Torrid.  The latter is a good resource for sizes up to 5X.
