If you thought the fashion trend from fall with it’s 70’s inspired retro styles was gone, think again. Suede was popping up all over the runways for Spring 2016. If you have some fall pieces that make the cut, you can now carry them forward to another season and stay on point to another top trend. Keep in mind when shopping for a trend such as suede you may want to avoid bold colours – if you’re looking for longevity. Some styles can look amazing in burnt orange or honey-gold yellow but if you find the items in sands & grays they will carry over season to season.
Aritzia has a decent collection with numerous 70 inspired ‘vegan’ suede options for Spring. As seen below I’ve got a charcoal gray shift dress on that keeps an effortless look. I’ve paired the dress with a moto jacket & sneakers, but if you want to dress it up and maintain 70’s vibe just add a block heel sandal for the complete look.
