FASHION Menswear STYLE THE TREND

Fade into Suede.

It’s pretty safe to say that now really is the time to hit the shops and treat yourself to some smart pieces for the bleak winter ahead. As the temperature drops and autumn fades into winter, you don’t have to trade in style for practicality.

The idea of wearing Suede in winter will send shivers of horror down the backs of some! Now, I’m not recommending you wear a suede jacket on your morning commute in the snow, but, rather to wear it layered or to evening occasions that call for something a little dressier.

Suede is a type of leather, usually with a slightly rougher feel which known as ‘nap’. Due to it’s open pores and textured nature, suede can become dirty and stain easily if not cared for properly.

Check out my favourites and some suggestions on different ways of wearing, below:
