Our love affair with the 70s continues as suede makes its way into our wardrobes this season. Whether you’re willing to do head-to-toe suede a la Olivia Palermo (if you want bonus 70s cred, opt for fringing) or just want to incorporate a touch of texture into your outfit via a skirt or shorts, you can bet that suede will be front and centre as we head into spring/summer. If you’re doing suede you can’t go wrong with warm neutral tones to help make it a truly versatile addition to your wardrobe.
The button down denim skirt is trending, but if you want an alternative, a suede skirt such as the one above will work with everything from a tee to cami or blouse. Team neutral toned suede with black and white for a polished look. Look for finishing touches such as the scalloped edging on the skirt above – it gives your outfit a point of difference.
A fringed suede jacket is a great lightweight piece to throw on over a blouse or tee while trying to navigate that tricky time in between seasons. If you want just a touch of suede, you can always opt for a pair of suede heels or boots.
Wearing one fabric from top to bottom can be tricky to wear but Olivia Palermo perfectly demonstrates how to wear head to toe suede and make it work. The key is to keep everything tonal to tie everything in. As far as accessories go, you can’t go wrong with anything in gold.
If you’re looking for something to wear during festival season get inspired by Lily Donaldson’s suede shorts. Wear it with a white singlet, pop on a leather jacket and satchel bag and you’re set.
A pencil skirt is always a staple of any work wardrobe, but this season why not opt for one in suede? Team it with a crisp white button down shirt and statement heels and you’re ticking all the right style boxes.
All the season’s biggest trends in one! Try a 70s style suede dress, work it back with lace up flats and pop on a floppy wide brimmed hat and you’re ready for a day out enjoying the sun.
