Suede: The High Street Edit

With the revival of the ’70s and the style explosion of the boho trend, suede is thenew take on your classic leather wardrobe staple. And we’re pretty happy about it!

Working hard throughout the sartorial year, suede separates such as skirts, bags and jackets will give your outfit a super soft vintage sensibility, and with many high street stores offering suede alternatives alongside the more pricier all-suede offerings, there has never been a better time to buy into this trend.

Come on guys, who can forget the gorgeous suede M&S midi skirt that Alexa Chung rocked earlier in the year? (Which promptly sold out – obvs) And, you must have noticed that a fringed suede accessory has become THE number one summer festival essential to nail your signature ‘I’m with the band’ look?

There’s no escaping it ladies, suede is here to stay. So whether you decide to sprinkle a little of this super chic textile into your everyday wardrobe (suede ankle boots are a great transitional investment), or opt for a full-on suede takeover (suede dress anyone), you’ll be pleased to know that there are plenty of options out there to suit a range of styles and budgets.

We’re particularly loving H&M’s huge range of suede and suedette pieces, ranging from skirts to jackets in a kaleidoscope of different colours. And why not inject some suede swagger into your workwear wardrobe with a super figure-flattering pencil skirt? Luckily for us, M&S have released another slew of fabulous suede skirts to rival the one Alexa made so famous, so now we can all bag ourselves a bit of Chung chic for a high street price. Hooray!


So, if you’re in desperate need of a suede fix we’ve found you the very best that the high street has to offer, to suit every style and budget…


Happy (suede) shopping.
