Suede is a material that just has a very…autumn feel to it, at least to me! It reminds me of September, the changing leaves and warm pie. It was mid-September of 2016 that I purchased my first suede skirt from Forever 21. I struggled over which colour to buy and ended up purchasing two, a hunter green and a dark caramel colour. I wore them with tights and without, but all while the weather stayed relatively cool. I never considered wearing my suede skirt past the colder months, especially in the middle of summer…but here I am, blessing the HOT July air with its presence.
What I love about this skirt is how forgiving it is! I hate skirts that have a side zipper because god forbid I eat too much and the next thing I know I’m sitting in my chair feeling like the skirt is cutting into my stomach and I’m about to pull an Aunt Marge and float away. Forgive me, I’ve been re reading Harry Potter and that’s the only thing I could think of.
The buttons on this skirt are perfect because not only does it create a vertical illusion but it’s a lot easier to slip into! The suede material isn’t super flimsy so it’s easy to tuck a t-shirt into it without looking bulky! I hate it when skirts have a super thin material that shows every single line …shirt, underwear…everything. I also love wearing just a simple body suit with it which really places a lot of emphasis on the waist and it looks AMAZING!!!
I’ve been loving mixing fabrics and I love the look of the suede and cotton mix match!! This colour especially would look great with a tan something that I don’t have right now…
One initial worry that I had was that this might be too hot of a fabric to wear when it’s humid and gross outside but I was sooo wrong!! It actually felt super airy and incredibly lightweight which is great for the summer!
In this look, I just paired it with a super simple tee from forever 21 that was less than 5 dollars!! I got the shirt in a smaller size so that it was a little bit more cropped and easier to wear with a skirt!!!
Do you guys wear skirts often?? I’m always so picky with my skirts but definitely going to try branching out!!!
