STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Sophisticated In Suede

Happy fall Fashionistas/os! It’s the season of cozy flannels, riding boots, apple picking and pumpkin spice lattes. As the leaves begin to change color, so do the fashion trends. Earth tones such as olive green, brown, dark red and orange come back onto the fashion scene with the change in weather. White pants are replaced with dark-wash denim and sandals are swapped with moccasins and combat boots.

Glamour magazine calls the suede skirt fall 2015’s most versatile trend. Suede is a type of leather with a soft napped finish and it comes from the inner skin or split of the animal. This Fashionista is right on-trend with her tan suede skirt that has a wavy hem. Her navy blue embroidered peasant blouse is tucked into the skirt, giving the look some added dimension and volume. The look is perfect for a fall festival, on campus activities fair or for studying with friends at a local coffee shop. If it’s a chilly day, grab a denim jacket to complete the ensemble.

Although the suede skirt is the focus piece of the look, the accessories bring the whole outfit together. The oversized dark brown leather bag with gold buckles can hold everything needed for the day. Her funky sunglasses and silver leaf earrings add personality to the outfit. The chunky silver bracelets are unique and bold, incorporating reds, oranges, brown and yellows into the ensemble, very indicative of fall.
