Ever since suede skirts made a bold re-appearance on the fashion scene I've been umming and aaahing about whether I could pull one off. 

And it doesn't help when everyone you see wearing one looks pretty bloody awesome especially Megan from Pagesbymegan here. To put it bluntly I'm envious.

See suede is one of those materials that will cling to you; and I'm not one for clingers, let along clingy material. 

So, when I was in Sainburys the other day and noticed this beauty taking pride of place on the front of the seasonal trends section I knew I had to grab it. Usually I'm always browsing the home section in Sainsburys - I can't do a food shop without doing so these days. 

However recently the clothing selection in TU has been catching my eye; supermarkets, your definitely on your fashion game!

For a mere £16 I didn't even debate and just purchased. I skipped home without even trying it on! 

Once I'd styled it up with a few items from my wardrobe I knew it was a keeper. I'm actually wearing it back to front in the above (I'm assuming its meant to be the back as there's the label), but I prefer the look of the zip at the front, so I'm rebelling! 

When it comes to how to wear suede, I always think suede looks best against a lighter colour palette; so I'd always opt for either white or cream, or go the opposite end of the spectrum with black for a cool casual chic on the town look! 

Do you have any tips for styling suede? 

Post me your links as I'd love some inspiration for future outfits :)
