Summer Suede

This summer it’s been all about the Seventies; Fringe, patchwork, burnt oranges, suede, festival chic, the list goes on. Although it’s not my preferred fashion decade, I have embraced my inner-hippy this summer with lots of 70s features. What I loved most about the trend was the range of textures, the rich fabrics, the psychedelic patterns, and, of course, the plethora of tassels shimmying down every street.

When teaming up with lovely Joanne to photograph her for her blog, The Stylist & The Wardrobe, we worked with an iconic Seventies number which was on everyone’s must-have list this year. The star of this shoot was a caramel suede ankle-biting skirt by Marks & Spencer. Hitting the trend nail on the head, the skirt encompasses everything about the 1970s, but with a structured contemporary twist. Joanne stylishly paired it with a classic crisp white shirt and her python chloe bag, the perfect look for a day out in the city.

Living in London, where you experience all four seasons in one day, I really appreciate those staple pieces which can carry you from spring all the way through to winter. Our shoot, photographed on the streets of Mayfair on a summer’s day, could have been taken in chilly September, on a fresh spring morning or even on a mild January afternoon – either way, this skirt will work whatever the weather. The caramel suede melts perfectly into the rich red tones of the timeless architecture and as my mind slowly begins to transition into Autumn wardrobe mode, I might just have to get my hands on one
