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.

One word to describe Mara Hoffman’s fall 2013 line from New York Fashion Week: eclectic. Known for her exotic, playful prints and fun pops of color, Mara Hoffman always delivers an eccentric and unique fashion show. We loved her looks from spring 2013 so much and we were expecting nothing short of fabulous for her fall collection. As tribal prints were a huge trend for spring, Mara Hoffman shows us that we can be playful and adventurous by incorporating bright, bold prints into our looks for fall as well. Mara unveiled intricate, symmetrical prints and embellishments in her collection with colorful frocks, cropped jackets, shift dresses, and elegantly edgy evening gowns. The patterns were truly memorable, and each look was more inspirational than the next. Models were accessorized with amazing suede and leather detailed shoes, Pamela Love armor rings, and dramatic earring chains draped from ear-to-ear. Prints are here to stay; summer hasn’t even arrived yet, but after seeing these dazzling and exotic patterns, we are already so excited to wear these fall fashions!
