Summer is over just as quickly as it began and it’s time for us to welcome a whole new autumn wardrobe into our everyday style, but here at Coathanger we are excited to announce our new Coathanger Loves series! Keep an eye out on our blog for regular updates on what the team at Coathanger and fashion expert Suzanne Bernie are currently loving. To start off our Coathanger Loves series, this month Coathanger Loves…suede!
The perfect transition into autumn, high end and high street stores are lining their rails with gorgeous suede garments from jackets and skirts to shirts and even bags! Suede was originally popular in the 70’s with the suede skirt being a staple in every girl’s wardrobe. Available in lengths ranging from mini to maxi, the suede skirt is a great autumn alternative for a somewhat summery skater skirt.
Suede Skirt – £59.99 at MANGO
Whilst the bomber jacket is a must for the cooler autumn weather, investing in a suede jacket will help you achieve a slightly more delicate look than a leather jacket, achieving a laid back cutting edge style without appearing too casual.
Suede Western Jacket – £135.00 at Topshop
We all love shirt dresses for summer with their floaty material and bold patterns, but with autumn bringing bitter cold mornings with it we need something more practical that doesn’t compromise our style. Just arrived in stores, many brands are releasing suede shirt dresses that are perfect for the coming months! Matched with a pair of killer heels or flat ankle boots, together they make a killer combo.

If you’re contemplating styling out suede this season but don’t want to go ‘all out’, there are many suede bags on the market to add an effortless edge to any outfit. Whether it be black suede or original tan, a suede handbag can pull together any outfit for any occasion!
