Over the next 2 weeks, Impact Style will be giving you the run down of the top trends for SS15: from designer to high-street to incorporating the trend into our own personal style.
IMPACT STYLE DOES SS15: SUEDE
Suede is back big time and we couldn’t be happier. First of all suede has some serious seventies vibes and hence on point this summer. Secondly there is plenty of choice when it comes to how to wear it with collections a la Chloe, Gucci and Michael Kors showing us how it’s done.
If you’re not the type to sport a whole look in suede you can always just rock a bag or a pair of oh so trendy flat mules – in suede of course. The runways have taught us that suede doesn’t have to be au-naturell either: all colours are allowed and are available – you just need to be daring enough. And finally – in case you’re not completely hooked already – the fabric tends to look a lot more pricy than it actually is – a true fashion gem for us broke student fashionistas. Speaking of broke student fashionista’s, suede is readily available on the high-street with retailers such as ASOS, Mango, and Topshop offering us a wide variety of styles:
ASOS, TOPSHOP, MANGO, FOREVER21
As this isn’t suede’s first appearance on the fashion radar, you might get lucky – as I did – when going through your mum’s (or aunt’s or grandma’s) old clothes and find some true suede gems. When styling your outfit around a suede item it is important to remember that suede in general is quite a statement and you won’t need much to stand out from the crowd. If you want to “double-suede” it is best to stick to one colour and style. For suede skirts, shorts and trousers a simple black top will do – maybe throw on a matching necklace and you’re ready to go. Suede dresses are easiest worn to sandals or black heels, a fresh face and big smile.
Here is how I styled two suede pieces I found: A truly shocking turquoise pair of high waisted trousers and a maxi button down skirt with some red embroidery and attached pocket.
