Move over, Meghan Trainor, it's not all about that bass, it's all about that SUEDE...
This chilly London weather has gotten me in the mood for Autumn trends and the first one on my wish list is none other than suede! Leather's best friend, and if I say so myself, its better counterpart, suede, is the must have material for this fall season. From booties to fringe jackets, to amazing belts to wear with your flared jeans, suede is back and here to stay in this fashionista's closet.
Let's go through the basics. Suede pieces are great to accentuate an outfit, but be cautious not to go head-to-toe overboard or else you'll be looking like you've stepped out of a Texas cattle ranch. Key items like a belt, hat, or flats can elevate an outfit off the runway into your everyday look. You can also be more adventurous with long fringe skirts or a mini dress that can easily be paired with a solid black turtleneck for effortless chic. Over the knee boots came back in full speed last winter with Stuart Weitzman's coveted everyday staple. This year, I'm looking for a little flare and these Chloe boots are perfect for work or that vintage mini skirt you've been dying to wear. The soft, semi-flexible fabric makes suede an easy choice for bringing your 70's look back into the modern day.
