How to Wear Fall’s Luxe Trend: Suede


Luxe textures are perfect for a crisp fall day. Suede pieces are always on my radar during the fall. When it’s chilly outside, clothing myself in soft and warm fabrics (along with a pumpkin latte in hand) make me feel warm and cozy. Suede (or faux suede skirt) also has the ability to make any outfit instantly more stylish.

A skirt is an easy way to implement suede into your wardrobe. A look suited for work would consist of a suede maxi combined with wardrobe staples such as a knit sweater, or a blazer and heels. You can also include accessories to add polish and personality to your look. For a night out a suede mini, silky top or a shoulder baring style will be sure to turn heads.

When you go shopping for suede pieces you may notice that buying the luxe fabric comes with a hefty price tag. If you’re looking for luxury, you will always have to fork over extra dough to sport these styles. Leather goods, in my opinion, are investment pieces. These are items you can easily integrate into your wardrobe and wear for years to come. I fully support spending extra cash on investment pieces rather than trendy pieces that are likely to not have the same  style longevity. A great alternative to get the look of suede without the hefty price tag is opting for faux suede. These days a lot of designs use materials that imitate suede without being able to detect that the material is not actually suede.

After you purchase your stylish suede items you want to protect them. Here are some tips and tricks to help you keep your suede pieces in tip-top shape.

Protect your Suede

  1. Clean suede with a suede brush to remove any dirt.
  2.  Use a protective spray specifically for suede to seal the suede and repel dirt.
  3. Avoid cleaning suede with water. Even if you protect them with spray, you still run the risk of ruining the fabric and causing discoloration.
