2016 Trend to Invest in: Suede

With all the new fashion trends that are constantly parading in and out of retail stores, it can be difficult to know which ones are worth buying into. Before I purchase any piece, I always ask myself, how long is this look going to be around? Will I want to wear this piece again 3 months from now? A year from now? Two? Is it worth my hard-earned money and does it actually deserve a place in the valuable real estate that is my closet?

Some of my favorite suede pieces to invest in: shoes, jackets, purses, and skirts.

These are not the easiest questions to answer. Even for me, the girl who eats, sleeps, and breathes fashion! That being said, a 2016 trend I can tell you with absolute confidence is worth investing in is suede. Used by fashion designers since the early 1900s, suede is a timeless form of leather that has endless versatility and screams luxury. From clothing to handbags, you can find the tanned hide everywhere this year. My favorite pieces to buy in suede? Heels and boots! Forever classic, suede footwear can most definitely be bought with confidence, knowing they will have longevity in your wardrobe!

Until next time,
