I’ve definitely got the 70’s trend on the brain this week. First up flares and now I’m harping on about suede skirts. This is definitely the next item on my hit list and because I’m a nice person, I’ve scoured the web looking for the only suede skirts you need in your wardrobe, so you don’t have to.
As soon a trend hits you can always rely on ASOS to have a bucket-load of clothes just waiting to be bought. This suede skirt is by far my favourite. It’s in a gorgeous tan, is real leather, has a wrap front with hanging ties and is a mini. It’s also a super-flattering A-line which is possibly my favourite skirt style, closely followed by a midi. At £65 it’s also a bargain. All you need to do is plait your hair.
This Valentino number is at the other end of the suede-skirt spectrum in terms of expense. It’s extremely pricey and while I won’t ever be able to justify spending three grand on a skirt, I can point out the positives. Fringing. Lots of fringing. And it’s long fringing, hitting mid calf. For that reason alone, I kind of love it.
It’s a black suede so automatically for me it looks smarter, especially when paired with a shirt and jumper. This is a more elegant take on the suede trend. If you’re not fully ready to unleash your inner 70s child, and you have a small fortune in your bank account waiting to be spent, this is the skirt for you.
And there you have it. The two suede skirts you need in your wardrobe, at opposite ends of the spectrum. You’re truly welcome.
Is this a trend you’ll be wearing?
