The Suede Transition


Burberry Prorsum AW15 RTW
 
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.
 
Just Cavalli AW15
 



Ralph Lauren AW15
 
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.

Thanks for reading my post and for all your support.

  3. Suede is so perfect for all year round, but especially pleasant for Fall. It's so soft & a little warmer & ever so stylish. Over the knee suede boots are my absolute favourite for the season!!

  5. I agree suede is such a beautiful fabric. I really like the chanel pink suede jacket...it is simply beautiful. I'm often torn between suede and leather boots. While I love the look of a suede boot, leather is so much easier to keep clean.
    Fantastic post Sharon!

    1. Leather is so much easier but sometimes I can't help myself when it comes to suede. It definitely requires more to maintain suede but it is so worth it. Thanks for the compliment, Keisha.

  6. Suede is gorgeous and timeless, especially w/ fringe detailing. Its like a fashion evolution and flashback involving 70s, 80s, and 90s.

  9. Inspirational post! I think I might have a slight preference for suede over leather, it looks a bit more chic and feels so soft. On the other hand, it's more fragile. But I guess it also depends on the quality: I have these Dr. Martens Mary Jane's for an eternity now and they're still in great shape (even though I've never treated or cleaned them!).
    A combo of leather and suede is of course killer :-)

    1. I hope you find the perfect pair of suede over-the-knee boots. I am sure it will be love at first sight when you find them. I really like the wooden heel on the Ralph Lauren boots. It makes them that much more elegant.
