Easily Suede

Thursday, September 10, 2015

The color of the leaves are changing due to the season, so why shouldn't your wardrobe follow suit? Fall 2015's most versatile trend is leather's sister textile: Suede. I've been seeing a lot of '70s/boho-chic making a huge comeback this season on the runways and amongst the hip-hop community, incorporating various suede accompaniments, such as: Fringed Jackets, Boots, Crossbody Satchels, and the list goes on. The suede skirt is my absolute favorite part of the '70s Fall trend! Whether done as a mini or midi, the luxe material (real or faux) has the ability to make any outfit instantly more fashionable. Style it with absolutely everything in your wardrobe from now until next summer, and plan frequent wears. Whether you're headed to the office, out on a date, or hanging out on a Saturday, it's a wardrobe winner. 

For this outfit I chose a neutral palette consisting of beige's, gray's and taupe's, Since the warm weather of the Indian Summer has hit the Bay Area, I decided to balance the heaviness of my suede midi skirt, with a lightweight breathable bodysuit tank. However, the San Francisco nights still tend to get chilly, so I opted to cover my shoulders in an oversized blazer. Bad-ass heavy metal accessories, a mini clutch that fits all the day-to-night essentials (credit cards, cash, phone, lipgloss, you know all the lil' things a lady needs at all times lol), and very sexy reptile-printed strappy heels, supplemented this minimalist ensemble, giving it a bit of edge.
