Spring is among us but that does not mean we can consider suede a last season trend. Designers like Balmain incorporated this fabric for their ready-to-wear spring 2016 collection! Suede is also being worn all over campus, from accessorizing with it to being the main focus of your outfit.

This lovely Fashionista is all about suede. She is transitioning from winter to spring by skipping the tights and knee high socks and letting the dark magenta suede number speak for itself. The suede doesn’t stop at the dress; she pairs it with black faux suede booties. These shoes have an interesting cut, which builds edge to this casual dress. Both of these pieces add texture and unique style for everyday wear.

For warmth and structure to her ensemble, she layers with an olive utilitarian jacket and some minimal accessories making this outfit her own. She easily dressed up her look with her favorite small handbag and black watch. For those Fashionistas who want even more suede texture, you could add a suede cross-body bag! Finally, finishing off her look, her beautiful waves!

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Don’t be afraid to wear abstract textures. Suede adds definition and edge to an outfit. Instead of your traditional Chelsea leather boots, wear suede for a softer feel while keeping a sleek look. Designers are beginning to use abstract textures on clothing, so I’m predicting a new trend of diverse fabrics used in all styles of clothing.”
