“Back To The 70’s”: SUEDE

Part 1/3 of the “Back To The 70’s” series.

This summer is all about going back to the 70’s and bringing back some major trends with a modern twist. For this SUEDE edition, I’m going to help you rock some fun suede for the summer; whether it’s some fun jackets, bold bags or statement shoes!


If you’re ready to splurge, try some of these gorgeous variations.



This vintage Balenciaga is truly a gem, from the light peplum accents to it’s perfect camel color.

Price: $1,250

If you want a less subtle and more daring look, go for this vintage fringed vest. Super cute, and perfect for the festival season.

Price: $248

If you’re looking for a combination of both the other options, something both daring and statement-like but also sleek and subtle, this Capulet cropped jacket is perfect for you.

Price: $998

Not ready to splurge yet? Take a look at some of these more affordable options you’ll love!


If you’re looking for something more everyday and wearable, try this suede moto jacket.

Price: $37.90

If you loved the Balenciaga option but are not prepared to drop 1250 on it, why not go for this Forever21 version? Similar style, way better price.

Price: $32.90

If you were obsessed with the Vintage fringed vest before, you’ll love this similar style from Forever 21. Same gorgeous fringes, but with added perforation which adds to the bohemian vibe.

Price: $32.90

To avoid the total “hot mess” 70’s revival, it’s best to do a modern take on some older trends. For example for suede shoes; avoid booties but try some sneakers.




Again, if you’re ready to splurge, go for it. These MiuMiu sneakers are definitely worth it. Touching on the trend of suede, but such a modern take with the slip-on style and fun accent toe.

Price: $365

For a similar look, try these Forever21 versions. Again, they bring back the suede trend, but the studded detailing adds a modern edge.

Price: $29.90

For an authentic 70’s look, this Marc Jacobs bag is the way to go. Gorgeous tan suede and gold detailing makes this bag irresistible.

Price: $2000

For an equally as cute option, this Forever21 cross body is perfect. Black suede keeps the bag subtle, but the fringed tassel adds a boho touch.

Price: $16.99

I hope this has helped you to take more fashion risks, and have fun with some Summer 2015 trends, even if they were a little to bold or not bold enough for you!
