Suede in the Third Ward

February 1, 2017

Happy Wednesday! Second semester is in full swing, and I cannot believe it is my final semester in college. I am eager and excited to finish strong but am feeling the pressure of what the last semester brings – regardless, the hard work and dedication will be worth it. Decadence Fashion has at least helped me stay sane.

Suede Jacket


Basic pieces are a must in everyone’s closet. No matter what your personal style is, staples are the base to any look. Unlike trends, staple pieces can be worn for more than just a couple seasons. For me, jackets are one of my favorite staples. Any style of jacket can be versatile to instantly complete an outfit. Wear a chic jacket over a sweatshirt, with a simple white tee and jeans, or with a dress for a night out, jackets can be one of those staples that will revamp your look.

Obviously, I have been loving suede jackets. If you do not own a suede jacket in particular, I can tell you why you need to. Most importantly, a suede jacket can be worn any time throughout the year – during every season. Styled for the winter, layer over a cozy sweater or turtleneck. Pair this jacket with a light blouse in the spring, a tank top and shorts for cool summer nights, or even wear it in fall with a long sleeve and scarf – the possibilities are endless. Unfortunately, this suede jacket I am wearing from Express is not available online anymore. Although, I did find a very similar one from Lulu’s that is just as amazing.

For this look, a cozy turtleneck layered underneath kept me warm enough on this warm winter day. I am so happy that turtlenecks have made a comeback, because now I cannot live without them. The detail gives an extra something to the usual crewneck neckline most sweaters have.

Can we talk about this furry pom-pom keychain I have on my purse?! I think it is so cute and is a fun accessory to dress up your bag. This trend emerged last spring, and specifically stood out to me when I saw Kendall and Kylie spotted with the Fendi keychains (the cutest animated styles) hanging from their designer handbags. Although the majority of us would not spend 2K on a keychain, thankfully brands like J.Crew and Target have come out with dupes.

Let me know what your favorite jacket (or staple piece in general) is in your closet!
