Suede is one of Spring/Summer 2015 biggest trends. Suede was seen all over the catwalks, it is the fabric of the season alongside denim. Denim is the easiest out of the fabrics to style- everyone has denim in their wardrobe and everyone loves it. However with suede it is a little more difficult. Suede can be layered up as we have seen on the catwalks, at Chanel a loose suede top was worn with suede trousers. If you’re afraid of drowning in suede, try suede accessories- maybe a suede handbag or a suede tassel bracelet to start off.

Here are some suede looks that I came up with:
Look 1- Conservative Suede
Brown Suede A-line Skirt– Marks & Spencer
White Shirt- Mango
Lace Up Sandal– Stuart Weitzman
Diamond Stud Earrings– Nina B
This is a simple no fuss suede look. Match a white shirt (roll up the sleeves) and pair it with a line suede skirt. Keep the accessories simple and neutral to get the conservative and effortless look. The Marks & Spencer suede skirt shown caused a stir when it first came out (online waiting list had 800 names on it within a hour) and was worn by the likes of Alexa Chung and Olivia Palermo. At £199 its not cheap (sadly suede doesn’t come cheap but look at it as an investment, buy a suede classic piece that can be worn all year around with boots in the winter and sandals in the summer ) but Marks & Spencer has a cheaper suedette version of the skirt for £31.60.
Look 2- Matchy Matchy Suede
Suede Crop Top-Oasis
Suede Pencil Skirt-Oasis
Black and White Mules– Miu Miu
White and Black Clutch– Givenchy
Pearl and Black Double Back earrings– Thpshop
This look is inspired by the double layering suede outfits seen at Derek Lam and Chanel.
Look 3- Festival Suede Life
Fringed waistcoat– Miss Selfridge
Denim Shorts– Topshop
White lace crop top– New Look
Semi Precious Wrap Necklace– Topshop
Brown gladiator sandals– Carvela Kurt Geiger
Aviator Sunglasses-Saint Laurent
Straw hat– ASOS
Suede is perfect for the festival outfit, wear a fringed waistcoat with on trend denim shorts or a white lightweight gypsy dress.
Stay Blessed! x
