6 Ways To Wear Suede

Personally, I am all for nostalgia. Whether it's listening to 'Two Become One'  on repeat or in my outfit choices; there's always something very interesting about taking elements of the past and bringing them into the present.

You may remember the suede trend from the 90s; maybe your mum forced you to wear it, but hey: at least you were stylish! Your childhood may have included 'Blue suede shoes' accompanied by your grandads foot tap or maybe you caught a glimpse of an old photo of your mum in her 70s suede get up. Whatever it was, the return of suede into our wardrobes comes with a sense of nostalgia.

So rummage through those thrift shop bins, visit all the vintage fairs or maybe even raid your mums closet to get your suede fix. Whether faux or real, black or brown, suede is all about the style choices you make. Here's six ways to wear the fabric of the season...


1. Pair It With Black

Let's face it, suede is one of those things that could look a little bit like a fancy dress costume if we make the wrong sartorial choices. As tempting as it is to fully wave the 70s flag and add some florals and crochet, this may result in you looking like you've just come back from a love pageant rally. I suggest you mix it with something classic to keep it looking fresh and does it get any more classic than black?

2. The LSD (No, not the drug!)

A simple, little suede dress (LSD) can make a rocking statement all on its own. Opt for a slouchy t-shirt fit and juxtapose with a feminine statement necklace and heels.

3. Fringe Festival

Invest in a fringed suede piece to tick off two major trends in one. If you opt for a skirt, keep the top crisp and feminine with a white shirt or lace blouse. Or take a leaf out of Gigi's book and throw a suede, fringe vest over anything and everything!

4. The Jacket and Jeans Combo

I'll let you in on a not-so-secret fashion equation. Anything + Jeans= Stylish. Well, unless that's something from Miley Cyrus's wardrobe, but let's not go there....

5. Thigh High

You know that cute, but waaaay too short, dress you've been dying to wear? Well now you can totally rock it without a fear of flashing too much flesh. Pop on some suede thigh-high boots and your ready to go! A much less strippery version of their leathery cousin, this boot will take you through the colder seasons (with or without tights).

6. Fifty Shades Of Grey Brown

With the strong texture of suede acting as a talking point in itself, opt for various hues in tones of beige and camel. This softens the look, whilst giving it a cool Safari-chic vibe.

  3. Suede over-the-knee boots are my favorite and a must have for my wardrobe! Best piece of "clothing/accessory" I could ever get for myself! It matches everything because it can be dressed up or dressed down due to the look and nature of the suede! 100% backing you up on this post girl!

  22. Suede looks great with black, brown and denim! I must say that LSD looks like something I would be willing to try and I don't mind the drug naturally! Fringes are one of those things that seem to be made for suede... You selected wonderful outfits...great inspiration.

    I think that red might be another great choice for suede...and paired with a red lip it might make suede look more glam.

  46. My heart belongs to the thigh-high suede boot trend, though my more realistic wardrobe favourite is the simple suede jacket. I recently bought a brown one and totally forgot about it, thanks for the reminder Rachel! :)

  53. Hello sweet and beautiful Rachel! I am solo glad suede "anything" is super in! I love suede and I think it looks great on anything. I actually just got a pair of over the knee suede boots and I can't wait for fall to begin wearing them:-) BTW, while visiting Italy and staying at one beautiful B & B in the country, I met a very sweet lady from Australia and I thought a lot about you:-) Anyways, may you have an amazing week my friend. Blessings!!! xoxo, Jeannette
