The Resurgence of Suede

Suede is BACK!

Fall trends have to be some of my favorite trends all year long. This fall we have so many great ones and one of this fall’s hottest style is suede.

The thing about suede is that it’s so much more than just a fabric, don’t you think? Suede has the incredible ability to take us places and decades we’ll never go to (unless we time travel of course), while having the major fashion ability to be all at once.

It blends with any outfit, making it look retro sophisticated, it stands on its own in head-to-toe understated glamour. Suede is a statement. But without the fuss. Depending on how you wear it, and the actual clothes you choose to have on your back. Suede can be 70s, 90s or today.

I guess this fabric takes us mostly to the glamorous and decadent 70s: suede trench-coats, suede knee-length skirts, suede cowboy jackets… Usually in brown, nude, taupe… It’s everyday-chic, and effortless, and I bet it’s something both our mothers and fathers used to wear.

In the 90s, there was those high waisted A-line mini skirts in suede. I think every girl in the country owned one of those skirts at some point. A favourite of many of the 90s girl band members back then. Then there were of course those 90s suede jackets that were actually 70s reminiscent. Tassles and embroidery were all the rage back then and we are starting to see this l;ook creep back in for this Autumn/Winter season.

And here we are today…

With their 2017 Autumn/Winter collections designers have called it a sure thing: SUEDE is to be this seasons biggest trend! I blame it on the 70s comeback and our lust for all effortless yet slightly glamorous and feminine with a twist of sexy things and looks.
