Trend Watch – Suede


This season is all about suede. This luxe fabric is a perfect addition to your wardrobe this festive month. This trend used to be huge in the ’70s, and has made a major comeback this year in both high fashion and street style. Designers like Derek Lam and Jason Wu to Michael Kors, have all taken part of the suede parade. What makes this trend new and fresh is the variety of colors and silhouettes as well as the addition of suede accessories that are available now.

With the colder weather ahead, this soft and plush fabric is perfect for the season. When dressing for winter, we shift towards thicker fabrics and materials, and suede is just the answer to a fashionista’s fall/winter wardrobe. From coats to dresses and velvety accessories, you can take your winter look to a luxe level with the haute hides.

Suede adds a richness to any look, whether it be the main focus of the outfit like a dress or trench coat, or as small as an accessory like a clutch or purse. A suede shoe or bag can be paired with dark denim jeans for a casual look, or add suede pumps instead for a party ensemble. Suede pants or a suede dress is the ultimate luxe way to wear the trend. Making the fabric the focal point means you don’t need to add much more to the look. Pair the pants with a simple blouse, and throw a blazer or light cardigan over the dress.

The slightly more subtle way of sporting the trend is by accessorizing with it. Suede knee high boots have been a huge hit this fall and carrying over into winter. A rounded toe boot can be added to a casual look, and some pointed toe heeled suede boots can add more glam. A chic suede bag is a great way to incorporate the trend into any look with ease.
