In this roundup of seasonal style buys, we’re talking suede dresses. The material is a throwback to the 70s, but it’s as hot as ever, especially at NYFW where it’s predicted to carry us through spring. As we approach cooler weather, we’re featuring short and long sleeve suede dresses that can be paired with open sweaters, cardigans, knee-high boots, and faux fur vests.
Lace-Up Faux Suede Dress
Forever 21, $29.90
The lace-up detail on this suede dress sets it apart as both more casual but also more fashionable. With bold sneakers you can wear this dress to a football game, but with chunky heels and a gold bangle, you can strut this dress at a more formal affair like a cocktail party.
Suede Short Sleeve Dress
TJ Maxx, $19.99
Consider this the classic suede dress that will soon become a timeless piece in your closet. It doesn’t take much to make this bold piece an outfit. Match with bootie heels, pendant necklaces, and if it’s cold out, a Southwestern open sweater. The minimal look of this dress makes it great for any occasion from the workday to a social outing.
Shirttail Hem Suede Shift Dress
This wine-colored suede dress is the perfect color for fall, but it will be just as suitable for the holidays due to its festive color. When it gets colder out, a faux fur vest would pair perfectly with this dress along with sheer tights. For now, rock this dress with knee-high boots and a floppy hat.
Long Sleeve Suede Dress
We love this style of suede dress because it doesn’t require another layer on top when the weather cools down. The button and collar combination make it easy to pair the dress with a gold or silver statement necklace. To complete your look, add a leather belt and matching fall boots.
Timeless Romance Shift Dress
Change things up with a darker suede dress that almost mirrors denim. Due to its darker color this dress is definitely better fit for evening affairs like going out, dinner dates, and concerts. Pair with silver layering necklaces, black ankle boots, and a leather moto jacket.
