Massive Spring 2015 Trend Alert! Suede

suede

With the 70’s being the decade du jour, we were bound to find some suede on the runways. However, the parade of  suede in unexpected colors and silhouettes — fiery red kimonos, studded purple pencil skirts and shorts — made the message loud and clear: Suede is in, and it’s gotten a major warm-weather makeover. As this fabric is classic, don’t be hesitant to invest in a few stand out pieces. Judging by how well it was picked up by street style icons this trend is here to stay for a few seasons to come. whowhatwear

Suede is surprisingly easy to wear. For example you can get a classic fringed suede jacket to replace your leather biker. It is just as versatile but much more up to date. We love how a burnt orange jacket looks with white jeans on the photo above. It will be perfect over your summer dresses as well.

Your grandma might have said that leather and suede don’t mix. Bullocks! These luxurious textures will look great together in complementary shades, as well as in a monochrome look, there supple suede will offset more brutal leather.

You don’t need to stick to just classic colors either. Why not add an unexpected pop of turquoise to your outfit? Especially in the summer when you want your look to be a bit more fun. Don’t be scared of light shade either. They are not as hard to clean as you might think. If you spill something pat at the area with a clean cloth or towel and then apply a layer of corn meal or talcum powder. Let it set overnight, and then brush the suede the following day with a suede brush to remove the dried powder.

You can wear suede in warmer weather as well. You will look and feel cool in short-sleeved top with some trendy fringing. Prolong it’s lifecycle when the weather gets colder by wearing it over a button down on chillier days like British Vogue editor Sarah Harris.

An elegant, knee-length suede coat is a piece you will cherish and wear forever. It can be worn over jeans and a t-shirt or dress up for the evening with a sleek black jumpsuit underneath. This is a piece your kids will want to inherit for sure.

If you are wary of leather or just not ready for a major investment look into accessories in this trendy material. We love the look of knee-length leather boots but even sandals or a fringed drawstring bag for example would add the right edge to any outfit.
