Happy #FASHIONWEDNESDAY! I have been so excited to bring you this post because I teamed up with another awesome blogger, Alexis from A Blissful Haven to bring you THREE ways to style a suede skirt. You can see my favorite way here, and then jump over to her blog to see the other two! I was originally going to style this two ways but on the day of shooting it was 97 degrees and the humidity was getting to me so…..you only get one. I will style it other ways down the line! Anyways — enjoy these 3 fun suede outfits and hopefully it feels a little more like fall for you wherever you’re at. 😉

Ok. So. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been eyeing suede skirts for a LONG time. I lovelovelove them, and feel like they are super underrated. I am kind of obsessed with the way this particular skirt fits — and, another plus, it’s perfectly modest! A lot of the suede skirts I have been seeing are a little too short than I like to wear (even though they are COMPLETELY adorable) so I was looking for a midi skirt and thank GOODNESS Amazon two-day shipping came to the rescue. It’s so affordable and hopefully you LOVE it as much as I do!
So, as I mentioned above, suede skirts come in a few different styles. They can be short with laces (so cute), long with fringe (not my fav, but you do you) or a neutral midi. Alexis chose the CUTEST short suede with buttons, and I went with the neutral midi! I love how it is a stretch suede, so it hugs my body in all the right places, and it doesn’t have any zippers or clasps. I prefer my skirts to be stretchy so I can sit and stand and jump without it moving an inch.
Originally, I was going to go for a dusty rose color. They are SO cute but I worried that they’d be more appropriate for spring as opposed to fall, so I went for the classic tan (as did Alexis). I plan on ordering this skirt in black and maroon ASAP as well because it fits SO well. Black, tan and maroon are all PERFCT fall colors so you won’t feel out of place.
I opted for a basic striped tee from Target (their layering tees are my JAM) and a jean jacket. Except that the jean jacket was totally for aesthetics only since it was 97 degrees out. AKA TOO HOT FOR AUTUMN. Missouri clearly didn’t get the memo that it’s fall. HOWEVER. Should it actually be fall wherever you are at, the jean jacket is the perfect layering accessory. I threw my big Kate Spade tote into the mix, and my favorite Restricted Footwear shoes (I brag more about them here). Voila – the perfect fall date night look!
But for real — go on over to see Alexis’ tips on styling a suede skirt TWO MORE WAYS . Thank me later!
PIN THIS FOR LATER:
I hope you loveloveloved this style guide — especially for an item that is SO popular this season. And most importantly I hope your weather is cooperating way more than mine is. Is it too much to ask for it to be real life fall? *remind me that I asked for it to get cold when it’s in the middle of winter and I miss summer*
