I don’t know if you ladies have noticed but suede is one of the trends that have carried over from last season. It’s here to stay so that means all my classic style ladies and I need to figure out a way to rock this trend in our own stylish way.
Now suede normally means having a 70’s feel to your look but there are ways to appropriate this luxe fabric into a feminine and classic look. Here are three ways to wear suede while staying true to your classic fashion roots!
1) Add it in Accessories
My favorite way to test out a new trend is to add it into my accessories. This way you are able to test drive the trend without splurging on a dress or shoes. Adding a little suede can also help dress down a more formal piece. Here’s how I combined the two:
Today I paired a suede lined cardigan over a classic style staple: the little white dress. This Tart Collection dress is everything classic and chic. It’s quality construction and fabric are top notch and is normally reserved for parties or events. Adding a little suede made this party dress work for weekend errands without raising any eyebrows. This look could also work with a suede moto jacket over top rather than a knit piece. (keep reading to get 15% off any Tart Collection piece…)
2) Opt for a Shift Dress
Opting for a shift dress opposed to any other cut gives you a little wiggle room when it comes to styling suede in a feminine way. You can play around with different shoe options (flats, heels, or ankle boots), for tons of outfit possibilities! I love the look of this suede shift dress with any shoe option.
Plus a shift dress is an easy one to dress up or down, again giving you tons of possible outfits. You can easily top it with any of your favorite 3rd pieces for perfect layering.
3) A-Line Skirt
If you’re more of a skirt than dress person, try a suede a-line skirt! These skirts are easy to wear with both sweaters and blouses, flats and boots. If you want ultimate versatility, make sure to snag a skirt in a solid neutral color like brown, navy, or black. You can mix and match tops with ease while still rocking the super trendy suede!
