Fall/Winter Trends 2016/17 - Suede

Unlike with the Plaid Trend, the Suede Trend got me right away. Suede is one of those fabrics that immediately elevates every outfit and transforms it into an eye-catching look.


Suede also works great in combination with other fabrics like silk or cashmere. By mixing different textiles, you can create a unique, and at the same time, sophisticated outfit. To give you an idea on how to rock the Suede Trend this season I put together a few looks for you.

Casual Vibes

Here I chose suede khaki track pants to create a casual but still on-trend everyday look. Due to the semi-sheer animal printed blouse with the black lace bra peeking through from underneath, this look becomes slightly bolder yet still daytime appropriate. 

Tip: This also a great style for a date night. The soft fabrics with the subdued skin exposure make you feel comfortable and feminine at the same time.

Workplace Vibes

Blue Jeans       Suede Blazer       Silk Blouse       Velvet Heels       Suede Tote

For this look, I switched up the basic black blazer for a suede version of it.  In conjunction with the taupe silk blouse, the outfit looks polished enough to make blue jeans appropriate for a business meeting.

Tip: A blazer like this is a great investment piece to amp up your black blazer game for years to come.

Festive Vibes

Clutch       Faux Suede Dress       Earrings       Metallic Suede Sandals       Bracelet       Zirkonia Bracelet

This dress is a real statement piece for the party season to come. Since it is such a showstopper, I decided to go easy on the rest of the look by combining just subtle silver pieces and picking up the Suede Trend in the metallic coloured sandals.

The asymmetrical hemline of the dress is another micro trend of this season, together with the side slit, it makes the dress even more enthralling.


After reading this post, are you as hooked on the Suede Trend as I am? Which look was your favourite? I'd love to hear your feedback. Until then....
