How to Wear Suede for Spring

Fashion fell hard for the ‘70s OB-session last year, (myself included!) and it looks like the dive into the decade hasn’t completely ended. During Fashion Week for Spring 2016, suede was all over the runway, proving that designers were still feeling one of the main fabrics from the trippy era.

Suede found its way onto the inspiration boards and then the runways of designers like Rebecca Minkoff, Olivier Rousteing, Prada, Derek Lam, and Jonathan Saunders. While some indulged in a full on suede appreciation, others added it in through accessories or small touches. Balmain on the other hand, fully fell for suede. Check out the full collection for some AB-solutely major inspiration.

Before you shy away from the swing of suede, let me show you three easy ways to work it into your spring and summer wardrobe! You’ll be a ‘70s suede convert in no time.

Suede Dresses & Skirts

If you’re ready to fully dive into the suede trend, scoop up one or two of these pieces. I’m OB-sessed with the suede dress I’m wearing above from House of CB. Colored suede is especially on trend, which easily matches with a solid white or black cami for an immediately pulled together outfit.

Suede Ankle Boots

Spring is the ideal time to embrace light and flowy dresses paired with tougher ankle boots. Mix and match A-line dresses that have a girl-ier feel with ankle boots for the perfect day look.


Suede Jackets

Leather jackets may be timeless, but there’s something about the touch and feel of a suede jacket that’s like no other. I love this one I found at Forever 21 a while ago! These pair just as well with a dress as they do with the classic jeans and t-shirt look.
