Fall Fashion Fixation: Leather and Suede

Happy Fall, Y'all! 🍂

I know it's been a minute, but I've been cooking up some looks for entering the fall season flawlessly for ya. And OMG l👀k! Here's one now! When the temperatures drop, it's crucial to execute an ensemble that not only serves all the cool vibes but can also keep you warm without compromising on cuteness. With that being said, allow me to make the case for my new fave fall combo: leather and suede.

If you cop nothing else for the fall–– get you a leather jacket. In addition to allowing you to channel your inner badass, a leather jacket is an icy way to keep a formal look casual enough to wear pretty much anywhere.😎 I got this lil piece from Sorella and you best believe it's sure to make a few appearances on le blog in the months to come.

If you're still unsure of how to layer on a lil leather and suede, lemme hit you with a few tips:
1. Go for color
.🌈 Fall and winter already have enough dark hues in play, so opt for a suede piece with some vibrance to it. Don't be afraid to break the rules of the season and embrace a pastel or technicolor vibe. 
2. Get girly.💁🏾 Gender norms aside, adding a more feminine suede piece to your look allows for you to balance the sexy with a lil sass when selecting your accompanying leather jacket or coat. Pick tings with a subtle snuggle factor to ensure you can still flaunt your assets in the colder weather.  
3. Keep it faux. Animals are cute and they don't deserve to be your outfit. When shopping suede, keep it in the faux department and look for pieces with a realistic feel and look.
4. Double up.✌🏾 Pile on the textures with a few different suede or leather pieces incorporated into your ensemble. Match a leather jacket with a leather clutch or pair your suede pieces with some matching booties.
