Two Ways With Suede

Layering looks will always be a must for winter outfits. One of my favourite fabrics, suede is soft, sleek and also a winter SS17 staple – but it can be pretty tricky to wear. Ditch the denim and forget about the velvet trend – here’s two ways to pull off suede instead.

Day Time Attire – the suede coat 


Every girl should have a suede coat in her wardrobe. The modern trench, it’s great for adding on top of workwear or pairing with more casual clothing for a relaxed weekend vibe.

I’ve paired this brown Zara suede coat with a Topshop denim skirt, River Island satchel, white Hollister vest and chunky eagle necklace. Suede is really warming – so you can afford to wear lighter layers underneath, especially on milder days.



Night Vibes  – the suede skirt

Suede is equally great for a night out and more glamorous affair. Here, I’ve paired a green suede Zara skirt with a faux fur jacket and green side satchel – and the same Hollister vest and necklace. It’s a fun fabric, and can be worn in so many ways. Suede skirts work equally well tucked in with shirts too – the sky’s the limit.
