Trend Forecast: Suede + Friday Favorites Link-Up

Happy Friday! Cheers to another week down and a fresh start for what’s to come! Speaking of what’s to come, suede is the first in my trend forecast for the fall. All of a sudden, I’m noticing a few of my favorite retailers coming out with suede-accented pieces! Although it’s a fabric that really needs to be taken care of well, it has such a beautiful, luxe look. It’s totally worth the extra care! 
So, here are the specifics! What I’m noticing is classic dark hues- such as navy, dark blue, black, and burgundy- and it mostly applies to accessories. Although I’ve seen a few suede button-up a-line skirts, the majority are bags and shoes. Take a look at some of my favorites!

    I like that last suede bag, lovely print and size and colour! 🙂

    I think suede accessories are easier to care for than clothes! 🙂

    Thank you for the link up!
