Boho dressing, with its distinct nod to the seventies, is the order of the day for Spring/Summer 2015, and what would retro dressing be without a hint of suede?
From Derek Lam’s effortless patchwork A-line skirts to western style trousers at Emilio Pucci, the trend covers a multitude. However, perhaps the most grown-up way to wear this trend is with a classic trench coat a la Jason Wu and Gucci.
Thankfully, Debenhams are delivering on the trend in a major way, so while you may have to splash the cash a little, you won’t be a need to re-mortgage the house.
This beautiful navy suede-effect trench by J by Jasper Conran is a real statement piece and will work hard in your wardrobe. Priced at €118.50, it will make a simple outfit of jeans and a tee look classy and put together. Pair it with a pretty, floaty dress in soft pink or cream for a real nod to the seventies.
If accessories are more your bag, then this tassel shoulder number from River Island will be right up your street. This comes in at €60 and will bring a hint of festival Moss or Miller style to your look.
We can’t discuss suede without bringing in some ankle boots and this fringed pair by Faith (€97.50), also available at Debenhams, are bang on trend this season. Wear with your jeans and knits until the weather cheers up, then team them with everything from printed skirts to crisp white pieces or denim shorts during the warmer months.
