Suave in Suede: 3 ways to style suede this spring

Guys, I feel like I was born in the wrong generation.

Seriously. Because I am pretty sad that I missed out on 70’s fashion. I feel like fashion in the 70s was so ugly that it was beautiful. That’s why I’m super pumped that suede is back in this year, and it’s bigger than ever, whether you love it or hate it!

Today on the blog I’m styling suede three different ways! My 20-year old sister is home from college for spring break so we made a day out of it and did a few fashion shoots this past weekend. She’s super creative and has a natural knack with this kind of stuff, so I think she did a pretty darn good job for being a photography newb! Plus she’s a great right-handed lady to ask for fashion advice since she is a fashion queen herself!

Let me know what you think about these daring, bohemian looks!

Suave in Suede: 3 ways to style suede this spring

I just love this look.

Do my pants look familiar? I styled these tobacco bells back in October when I collaborated with Tribe Kelley. I’m proud to admit that I am SO totally an outfit repeater, and I was stoked that these bad boys came out again to make an appearance. I’ve had this printed top for over two years now and it’s one of my all time favorite purchases. My girfriend in college used to steal it from me all the time (Miss you, Abigail!) I am obsessed with the fringes! I’m going for the 70’s gypsy vibe with this look.

Suave in Suede: 3 ways to style suede this spring

I’m a country girl. I always have been, and I always will be! I grew up in a beautiful home with a big spacious yard nestled in between an old barn and a corn field. The world was my playground. I think my upbringing is why the bohemian, free-spirited look has always been my favorite.

To me, this suede dress screams concert attire, so I plan on wearing it when we go see Brantley Gilbert next month!

These boots are another old favorite. They have seen Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, Toby Keith, Jake Owen, Miranda Lambert, Hunter Hayes, Florida Georgia Line, and more. (Can you tell that I am completely obsessed with going to concerts?!)

The bells are back and paired with my new fringe top from Apricot Lane. I’m a firm believer that a girl can never wear enough fringes; I have so many items with fringes on that I lost count!

I am really sad to see that my purple hair is fading. It works so well with these free-spirited looks.

  • I so love that top in the first outfit! These looks suit you really well! I was recently tempted by a suede-look dress in H&M…I’m still not sure whether I’ll end up going back and buying it.

  • I love the looks on you! I’m not sure I could rock anything except for the second look but you look great!

  • Candy Kage

    I lived the 70’s round two for me

  • I LOVE that dress! And I quite like the top in the last outfit! It all looks so great on you :) I have to say though, when it comes to suede for me I quite like it on other people but I just don’t think it suits me at all! I’m more of a classically chic kind of person and on days I’m not doing much jeans and a sweater!

    • Thanks Hannah! I totally understand. There are some trends that I am not comfortable with rocking!

  • Gypsy Girl looks flawless on you! I can totally see you rocking this :)

    • Thanks Kara! Definitely one of my favorite looks!

  • Love your fringe bell sleeve top from Charlotte Russe!
    xo, Laura

    • Thanks Laura! I’m all about that fringes! xo

  • I’m not gonna lie- when I clicked on this, I doubted I would like the outfits because I love LOTS of bright colors, and I am not a big fan of tan/khakki, but I think you did a great job with this style. I actually like the dress a lot, which surprises me. Good job!

    • Yay! Thanks for stopping by, Kristin!

  • All of the outfits are so fun! I love a good suede piece and your are rocking them all!
