Summer Suede

1. Top – Acne Studios Clair Fluid Black Top; 2. Suede Shorts – Topshop high waisted shorts; 3. Mid-Heels – Paul Andrew Lexington python sandals; 4. Bag – Gucci Bamboo Shopper

Versatile, elegant and with a pinch of the returning 70s flair, suede is undeniably one of my favourite elements to sport all year round – but especially at the moment.

Although it might be somewhat of a typical Indian Summer material (just right in time when it’s slowly cooling down), I re-disovered how well the smart little sister of our much more common leather versions goes with a range of different pieces in our wardrobes when summer has not arrived yet (properly).

While it seems like suede appears quite easy to find and integrate in daily looks right now (magazines are full with it, online stores wave with “style picks” everywhere I click), I think that the challenge remains to create a look which is not too fall-mood-y and will leave us with a sophisticated note for spring/summer without looking too elegant or Wild West styled (keep that for your festivals…).

The only ruling thought on my mind when pairing my suede staples and considering new ones? Flashy colours for accessories, natural tones for (real suede) statement pieces.
