Persuaded by Suede?

By  | 

Have you been persuaded by suede? If you’re yet to be convinced our writer Jess Davis is on hand to tell you why you should sit up, listen and take note.

Suede was everywhere on the SS15 catwalks, from Gucci to Michael Kors, and now it’s filtered down and is dominating the high street.

Whether you’re understated or a bright and bold fashionista- this versatile trend means there is definitely a sassy suede piece out there for you! Maybe you’re a high street girl through and through, or a designer dreamer – either way, suede is everywhere and it’s here to stay.

This 70’s classic can jazz up any outfit. From suede tassels for a festival chic look, to a suede heel teamed with an elegant evening gown for a more glam finish, suede has got it covered. You can even incorporate both of these looks in one, just like these Steve Madden yellow, tasselled, suede, beauties, offering some laid-back sophistication to inject into your summer styling.

Invest in a few key items so you can keep suede as the staple key focus to your ss15 wardrobe. A knee length A-line skirt, like the one I’ve chosen, to style with a silk blouse, a bucket bag, or a suede coat you’ll wear day in day out all season.

Depending on the colour of the item, keep others within your outfit to a minimum and depending on the occasion, suede items can work with other suede items. A fringed suede waistcoat would rock with a plain top and a suede boot. These Jeffery Campbell booties in pale blue are ideal, and are also bang on the pastel trend this season.

One of my favourite pieces from the high street are these Zara cut out shorts in beige. Dress them up for a night out, or keep it casual with a tee for perfect on trend day wear.
