It is kind of ridiculous to refer to suede as a fall trend since it has always been routinely worn during fall and winter so I won’t do that. I will simply state that is has always been one of my favorite fabrics. It is a fabric with many great qualities. It is luxurious, soft, sumptuous, timeless and sexy. Like its counterpart, leather, I always look forward to wearing it and would be quite sad if it were not part of my wardrobe. That's why my leather jackets and suede coats share the same wardrobe space. I routinely trade one for the other depending on my mood.

This season many fashionable have caught the suede fever. It could be that everything 70s is so on-trend right now and suede was certainly one of the most popular of fabrics during that decade; however, it is a bit more than that. After all, just like leather suede has become one of those transitional fabrics that stays around long after the winter chill is gone.

One just had to look around to see that this fabric adorned everything this summer from fringe vests to suede cross-body bags. I could not be happier that so many have decided not to leave suede behind one the sunshine of spring comes around. It deserves to be whenever and wherever one wants to wear it, in my opinion.

I have already decided that I want to invest in a pair of new boots for fall but I can’t quite seem to decide between whether I want them to be leather or suede. It should be a rather simple choice since leather is really easier to take care of and it is my all-time favorite fabric but I have been having a tug-of-war in my mind because as much as I love leather suede is certainly a close second when it comes to what I am craving this season.
I really don’t need a suede pair of boots. I already have a couple of pairs already but as you must know by now I have lost the battle with myself. Besides, I strongly believe in the value factor. Invest in a quality pair of suede boots, take care of them properly and they will can remain with you forever.

The dizzying array of boots I have seen here and there lately certainly won’t make my job easy but dozens of choices can be quite a good thing when it comes to fashion. Not only have suede boots been on my mind but, of course, a suede skirt would make such a lovely companion to the other items I already have in my wardrobe.
I may be transitioning to boots for fall and winter but suede footwear adorned my feet throughout the summer in the form of suede open-toed heels and booties so regardless of whether suede remains hot or not I won’t ever lose my love of the fabric. Suede is way to divine to ever lose its popularity with me.
Now that you have read about why I love suede let me hear from you. What do you think? Is suede all that or is it over rated?
Below are a couple of tips on how to take care of your suede garments:
Liquid spills can be soaked up with a bit of talcum powder. Lightly pat the spill with a clean cloth, sprinkle the stain with talcum powder, let it set and brush.
Dirt can be removed from suede with an eraser, a clean toothbrush or terry towel.
Nothing, of course, is better than protecting your suede by applying a stain repellant.
I look forward to hearing from you my dear friends.
