STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Suede in Spring

Spring has sprung here in Montana, and while there is still a bit of snow, the days are filled with above-freezing temperatures. As soon as this happens in Montana, it’s basically summer, and that means bringing out the dresses and retiring the winter coats for the season. This Fashionista caught my eye with her suede dress. Suede has always been a material of choice for many when it comes to bags and shoes, but a new trend that I have been seeing is suede clothing: pants, jackets and dresses alike. Suede dresses are the perfect piece to add to a wardrobe as they can be worn with almost any style. The weight of suede is also perfect for spring; as it is light and flowing, yet warm enough to pair with just a jacket.

I have found that texture and fabric are a great way to make an outfit more of a statement. While the colors are still neutral, the texture of both the suede dress and the leather jacket come together to create a perfectly edgy look. The booties help to transition the look from snow and winter to the cooler morning of spring.

This Fashionista also caught my eye because she kept her look very simple, without adding an excessive amount of accessories, she was able to make her look complete.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “I am ready for spring, but still want to make sure that I am warm enough throughout the day. Being able to play with fun materials (like suede) and be comfortable (temperature wise) is awesome.”
