21 Superfresh Ways to Wear Suede Now and Into Spring — Can You Dig It?
Suede is one of those fabrics that never really goes out of style, though certain pieces and silhouettes ebb and flow in terms of their trend status. For Spring 2020, suede is most definitely in from the return of the fringe jacket to tailored dresses and slouchy boots worn over jeans. Some great news, too! You don't have to subscribe to '70s-inspired style to feel like yourself in these pieces. Yes, a retro aesthetic pervaded designer collections from Celine to Khaite and Altuzarra, but at the same time, many looks were pared back and sleek á la the minimalist movement. Which means? There's a suede look for everyone this season.
Because the fabric is more substantial, suede is the ultimate texture to work into your wardrobe now while it's still chilly, whether you opt for suede separates head-to-toe or a single piece, be it a pair of pants, knee-high boots, a midi skirt, or a belted jacket. Once we've transitioned to Spring, suede pieces feel decidedly fresh in tandem with the biggest colour trends like sky blue, poppy red, and lilac, with utilitarian pieces with cargo pockets (this look is a cool take on tailoring), and even mixed with leather (if you attempt this combo, we recommend sticking to silhouettes with clean lines sans embellishment for a streamlined look). Spring is also a great time to continue rocking your knee-high boots. We love the idea of ditching your layers in favour of a simple t-shirt or cardigan worn as a top and letting your boots take centre stage with jeans or trousers.
Whether you need a little encouragement in the suede department or are always here for the supple fabric, ahead, our edit of the best suede pieces to buy for Spring. Plus, the freshest outfit ideas to carry you through the season from fashion-forward looks to easy-chic ensembles.
