Outfit Post: Boohoo Black Suede Dress

 It seems suede made a very impressive comeback this last few fashion seasons and it’s very much present across designers runways  as well as high street stores. This originally 70’s classic made its way into our hearts and now occupies front rows in our wardrobes, no doubt about that.

I’ve also succumbed to this soft and delicate fabric and I’ve just had to purchase myself a piece. Whilst I wanted a classic camel or dark green shade, I’ve decided otherwise. I felt in love with the dark gothic side of this Boohoo black suede dress. This piece is so comfortable but thanks to its cut, I find it so versatile and perfect for the transition of seasons. I wear it with a warm top, classy blouse or just as  it is, like I did this time.

I like the days when weather is sunny and all there is to do is to enjoy the moment outside with your friends. Whilst I didn’t get a chance to relax all day as I’ve had few weekend responsibilities and errands to catch up on, my husband took me out for a drink later on in the afternoon. Even though it still wasn’t warm enough to sit in the garden, I still enjoyed sunshine and tried to soak as many sun rays as I could and this dress is perfect for this weather.

If you are convinced suede is limited to just neutral shades, you couldn’t be more wrong! There is so much to choose from. Of course you can stay true to its ever-so-popular sandy, neutral hues or you can go all out with earthy luxurious burgundy tones. I quite like the richness of burgundy hues and there are quite a few burgundy suede jackets that I’m eyeing at  the minute.

I adore this versatile black suede dress. Especially its power to totally transform from flowing leisure look (for the days you just want to relax) to more sculptured style that I’ve created for today’s fashion outfit post.

We could have witnessed this belted look at runways during the spring fashion week where  designers were taking their artistic take on the Victorian era. We could have seen plenty of detailed neckline, ruffles, lace and collars as well as belted-looks, emphasising waste and ladies silhouettes.

I like to play with accessories as you can very easily transform your current wares by adding simple touches like belts, and create a new look, all with a very little effort. I went all out with my Primark necklace. It was a bit of “do I dare” situation when I spotted it in a shop but then I did dare and haven’t regretted it. It adds a bit of something special into any outfit.

As this is a more dark gothic look, I paired it with my edgy New Look boots. This pair is a bit on a wild side, at least for me, as I normally “rock” classy feminine pair of moccasins. But why shouldn’t I step out of my comfort zone every now and then?

There’s no reason to restrict your style to one look and whilst I adore classy feminine looks more than anything,  I’m not scared to experiment with masculine trends either. Just play around a bit with your wardrobe, mix and  match different pieces and you never know what you can come up with!

I don’t think suede is ready to leave shops anytime soon so don’t worry to invest in this, what now seems, timeless trendy piece. Just like leather has been in the past few years.  I’ve also noticed suede is a firm darling among the fash-pack at the moment. Perhaps it’s for its sumptuous soft feel that comes across so luxurious.

What about you, have you succumb to this trend and what are the pieces that you’ve bought?

    Oh my gosh! I LOVE this outfit!! The dress suits your so well and love how you accessorized with the necklace. I agree it's good to play about with the trends. I sometimes like to experiment with masculine trends too by adding a structured jacket and trousers. Fabulous look darling!

      Thank you Claire! It's actually slightly baggy style dress but I styled it with the belt.
