Suede, Suede Everywhere…

Suede or Ultrasuede is the ultimate fabric for fall. One thing I adore about this fabric is it adds a texture to an otherwise one-dimensional outfit. Ultrasuede is actually cozy- warm without being smothering, an excellent layering piece but can also stand on its own.

One question I have heard from many of my friends is- how in the heck do I wear it? This is the most-asked question of unique pieces and fabrics, and I love pulling different items and styling them.

I showed this skirt on my last ChicagonistaLIVE! segment, and Nancy asked how I would style it. Over the knee boots have lasted the test of time- they were in last fall, and are still going strong for this cold-weather session. “The shorter the skirt, the longer the boot” is a phrase I have heard a few times, so with a mini I had to go all the way up. I decided to go middle of the road in price- of course I want the Stuart Weitzman lovelies, but the Steve Madden Gorgeous are a perfect dupe!

I styled this 70’s vibe skirt with a bow neck blouse from Old Navy and a cropped sleeve blazer from Lauren Conrad’s Kohl’s line. 

I love these boots coming as well as going!! The drawstring detail adds a little sex appeal. How would you style these boots?

      THANKS! I was nervous about wearing a mini since I am well…34 not 24, but with the higher boots it seems to work!
