Who doesn’t love a 1970’s throwback? The soft and devilishly delicate form of leather is scheduled to make a comeback come Spring 2015. Jason Wu’s best look was a showstopping, semi-seafoam green dress with a deep v and high slit.

Michael Kors and Ralph Lauren sent out preppy but not prim suede suits in navy and forest green that I’m just dying to integrate into your workwear wardrobe. Derek Lam and Karen Walker had a more playful take, showing suede ensembles in pastel purple and sunny yellow.

2015’s suede designs are distinctive not just in their hue and material, but in their modest formality. Altuzarra, Ralph Lauren, and Jason Wu created office-optimal suede dresses ready to revive weary working women and animate ambitious upstarts. The matching suede sets seen at Michael Kors and Derek Lam mix the structure of a suit with retro cheekiness to delightful results.

T Magazine of The NYT traced the linerage of next Season’s strong streak of suede:

The material was first spotted in New York at Derek Lam, but it really started to trend in Milan. At Gucci, the creative director Frida Giannini presented a boho-charged collection of floral, beaded minidresses, colored fur vests and the suede belted dress above, that looked straight out of the brand’s archives. Yesterday in Paris, the designer Claire Waight Keller introduced a similar silhouette on the Chloé runway: a shorter, belted jacket paired with shorts. And finally at Loewe, the British designer Jonathan Anderson used leather and suede heavily in his debut show for the Spanish luxury leather-goods brand — which peaked with this buff suede trench coat with wide-leg trousers. The bag reinforced the message loud and clear: suede is in.

Head to toe suede might seem intimidating at first, but don’t be discouraged: there are plenty of ways to make this look modern and convenient for any girl on the go. Since suede is naturally a loose, thin fabric, you’re going to want to add form with clean lines and solid structure.

There’s no doubt that Cara Delevinge is at the top of her game and we have floor seats. With just under five million Instagram followers, this blonde hair green-eyed London socialite graces our presence on the runway and covers of every major fashion magazine. Gorgeous high fashion model by day, hipster grunge social butterfly by night, Cara hangs with the likes of big A-listers like Rihanna, Miley and Kate Moss. 2011 started off big with a feature in Burberry’s spring/summer 2011 campaign. Talk about setting the bar high.

The many faces of Cara have hit social media in one big swoop. I mean that tongue of hers. It’s almost as famous as Miley’s. Quirky eye rolls and devil horn hands are just a few of Cara’s go-to looks for last minute photog moments. Can’t blame her for having fun and staying goofy in a world full of high fashion. The girl is only 21 ya know!

Michelle Obama Inaugural Fashion

 

 

 

Michelle Obama kicked off the day of President Obama’s second inauguration in style! She wore a custom-fitted Thom Browne checkered coat and dress with a beautiful beaded belt and Reed Krakoff shoes. When asked about his designs for the first lady, Browne said, “I wanted her to feel good in it and to feel comfortable, strong, feminine and beautiful.” Browne is mainly known for his tailored suiting and menswear clothing, and you can see the menswear inspired details in her coat! Mrs. Obama has become a true style icon, and her immense respect for those in the fashion community has made many designers today household names!

When it comes to making brilliant and daring fashion choices, Michelle Obama always knocks it out of the park and manages to exceed all of our high expectations! She looked like royalty in this ruby red Jason Wu creation with Jimmy Choo heels and a Kimberly McDonald ring. This is the second time that Michelle Obama has worn Jason Wu for the inauguration, and we love how his designs fit and flatter our First Lady (and like we always say, why fix what’s not broken?) The style of this dress is also very flattering, and the halter-style cut beautifully showcases Mrs. Obama’s sculpted arms. Mrs. Obama was also sporting a fabulous new ‘do, and we love her bangs and youthful haircut. It is incredible how one hairstyle can truly make or break an outfit, and we think Mrs. Obama’s new look completely flatters her personality and also worked well with her gown. It is important to remember how the power of one haircut can greatly influence your overall look and style!
