It is all about the Seventies this season. From fashion weeks and celebrities to street styles, it’s a walk down memory lane everywhere! Stylistas all around the globe are trying to incorporate this new trend, so why should you be left behind? Suede, an essential fashion component during the seventies, has made a major comeback.
However, you will need to be highly careful so as to draw the line between looking like you walked out of the past and walked into a magazine cover. You need to make sure your attire looks dapper and in style, and less like a costume from the times gone by. Mentioned below are a few suede fashion inspirations to get you started on how to wear the 70s in style this season?
‘Dress’ it Up in Suede
Suede can very easily be classy and fabulous. But what many people don’t know is that it is not just the go-to material for coats and accessories, but when used creatively, can make absolutely gorgeous dresses! No wonder the ramps this season were filled with suede dresses from designers like Jason We, Ralph Lauren. Michael Kors, Derek Lam. Gucci, Max Mara and Chloe just to name a few. Suede paired with studs and sleek cuts makes for a gorgeous formal wear, whereas a bold print on suede makes it chic enough to wear to an evening out. If you’re looking for something to wear to work, then opt for a small suede day dress to pay tribute to current fashion trends.
Fringe it Up a Little
The Seventies was also all about the fringes. So, it is no surprise that they have made their way this season. Suede and fringes go as well together as peanut butter and jelly, but they’re even more deliciously appealing. So if you’re looking to add some cowboy inspiration to your wardrobe too, then opt for a fringed overcoat, a stylish skirt or a Boho fringed bag to complete the look.
Not a big enough fan of suede to go all out with it? Looking for some stylish addition without going a little overboard? Fortunately for you, there are plenty of ways to add suede to your closet without wearing it all over you. From boots, to stylish hats to the evergreen handbags – there are plenty of options to go suede without screaming “wannabe”. Here’s a little inspiration from Miranda Kerr. Look at how she styled her outfit with a suede handbag in a light steel blue color.
Suede boots are pretty much a must have. You probably might have owned a pair of suede boots at some point in your life, and now is the time to take them out. In case you’ve been generous enough to give them away, it would be a lesson well learnt. You never give away suede boots! Ask around to see if your mother or older sister owns a pair, and borrow them. And then go ahead and rock those boots, making an all-too-important-style-statement this year. In case you decide to invest in a new pair, here’s an inspiration from the style icon of India – Sonam Kapoor. She wore these to the Star Screen Awards 2016, proving that even with suede boots, you can walk down the red carpet in style!
