When you think of fall, what are the first things that come to mind? Maybe golden leaves falling from trees, earth toned clothing or pumpkin spice lattes (or that may just be me channeling my inner “white girl”). For me, fall is a time where I think of dressing in cozy sweaters and leggings, but also rocking some suede and leather.
Since I live in Florida, fall doesn’t really hit us hard like other parts of the country, but of course I try to embrace it as much as possible in my day to day style. I have really been loving suede lately, as I did last fall, but I have really enjoyed pairing it with different patterns and textures. Today, I am rocking this suede fringed tank top due to the extreme heat that we are currently experiencing here, but since it’s a tank it’s much more comfortable to wear. This suede isn’t super thick either so it’s extremely comfortable for any season too! For bottoms, I decided to wear my favorite high-waisted black jeans from PacSun with some leather lace-up heels. I would have never tried pairing these textures together, but when I tried them on, I knew I had to wear them together!
I’m a person that loves venturing out into the usually terrifying world of mixing and matching patterns just because it gives me the opportunity to make my own unique style. I have a very boho, rocker, chic style and the reason why I know that that’s my style is because I have experimented with it. Sometimes it’s kind of scary to walk out feeling mismatched, but you have to try something new in order to know if you like it.
My tip to you: go out and buy unique pieces that you find and see how you can pair them together. Definitely buy one suede piece, one leather piece and maybe something with a cool print or pattern.
