Styling Suede Skirts

I think I mention Ohio’s crazy weather in just about every post, but seriously Ohio, get it together! I’m tired of dressing for summer and I just want to wear sweaters, booties, and rich fall colors. With this warm weather we are having, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect piece for a fall outfit that won’t make me break a sweat. I showed overalls as a great transition piece in my last post, but I understand that not too many girls are going to wear overalls on a day-to-day basis.

Skirts are undeniably a huge trend this fall, and button front skirts are in the spotlight. I had to get one immediately when I saw them popping up all over my Instagram feed. Old Navy was the first website I checked for one, and they had a beautiful suede button front skirt. It comes in wine, tan, and navy, but I ordered the tan to start out. I was in awe at how rich the tan color was in person, and the suede is SO soft! For reference, I ordered a 2 at first, but returned it and sized down because I wanted it to sit higher on my waist.

I’ve paired the tan button front skirt with a black mock neck tank from Gap that I’ve been wearing like crazy. To keep the look chic and simple I wore my favorite mules from Marshalls (similar here) and carried the Cameron Street Sophie in punch. This bag has been coming in handy for fall because it’s the perfect warm pink to pair with rich tans, like this skirt.

I rarely ever buy the same style in two different colors, but I had to make an exception because I love this skirt so much. The wine is just as rich in color as the tan. Both are going to be perfect with tights as the weather gets colder. I’ll try not to fast forward too much to winter, but I can already picture the wine with black tights, black booties, a white blouse, and blush fur vest for holiday parties. For now, I paired it with a taupe lace up top and blush heels to keep it weather appropriate. It’s lightweight so I won’t be overheating, but the suede makes it feel like I’m dressing for fall.

I didn’t know if I’d really get a lot of use out of these skirts, but I find myself reaching for them more than I do any other bottoms. Like I said before, both can be paired with tights when the weather cools down, so don’t hesitate buying one when it finally does get under 70 degrees!
