Summer Suede

summer suede

Suede is a definite hit this summer and a fab trend which adds a new fabric and texture to an outfit. Suede was seen all over the SS15 runways with block colours and patchworks being found on dresses, skirts and jackets and it is a great trend to mix with fringing to create a real boho look (As seen on Olivia Palermo, above). I love the use of bright suede as its a little more quirky and fab as a staple piece to an outfit which will draw some attention and really show off your style. Below I have found some bargain suede pieces that are affordable and funky to wear this summer and into the winter with a pair of tights!

 image3xxl ASOS Mini Skirt in Suede £50.00 – A little pricey but this soft touch suede will offer comfort and a fun orangey colour to your outfit. This mini skirt would look brill with a pair of converses and a simple logo tee, nothing too flashy just simple and cool.

d3111137_emily_30.01.15_aj_1677 Missguided Suede Tassel Long Sleeve Plunge Bodycon Dress £35.00 – This absolute bargain comes from Missguided and uses the fringing and suede trend together to create a dress for a nightout which will beat all your friends looks! A sleek and sexy fit of the bodycon dress, paired with the tassel sleeves is a great look and I absolutely love the colour (As does Elle magazine!) and it really screams Coachella chic.

27A11HBLE_2_large  Topshop Suedette Pleated Midi Skirt £48.00 – 70’s style is a must this season and this suedette skirt in a baby blue looks amazing with this gypsy style white off the shoulder top. This is a real pretty look and would be brilliant on holiday for a look you can dress up or down, simply throw on a loose fitting top and sandals for a stroll along the beach or a pair of 70’s platforms and a bardot crop top for a night on the town.

The Fringe

Fringing has been a trend seen on so many runways over the past few fashion weeks. Designers such as Alexander Wang, placed fringing on hemlines to create a cool rock chick look while Jonathan Saunders made use of folksy fringing for a more boho trend. Here are a few high street fringing picks I found to get the look!

27U03GNUD_2_largeTopshop Fringe Lace Top and Pencil Skirt: £140

A sweet and feminine look and a great take on a flapper style dress. Perfect for summer balls and cocktail parties.

5415444800110_092_d Urban Outfitters Urban Renewal Vintage One-of-a-Kind Cropped Fringe Jacket: £135

This is a really cool look and a great way to add a little rocknroll to any outfit, this one-of-a-kind jacket is a definite center piece for any cool summer look.

CASALNUOYO_37_RG_324 Aldo Leather Casalnuoyo Ankle Boots in Taupe: £130

A little bit more plain than some looks but this is a good hint of fringing without going to mad, but the taupe colour is a definite winner for me and i love how they could be worn with a floaty boho skirt or a good pair of skinny jeans.

A real bargain for a real leather bag and a must for the fringing trend as fringed accessories look amazing and add a real flair to any old outfit.
