The Fashion Memo

The off-duty update: Suede

Suede is one of those special fabrics that calls to mind warmth, ease and a particular retro appeal. FW18’s key pieces? The trench, midi skirt, jacket, culottes and over-the-knee boots are the new (again) game changers


The trench

Look to Altuzarra for the perfect soft suede trench, and choose a loose, belted style to create a fluid silhouette. Pair deep jewel tones, raw denim and a white tee for a compelling hi/low mix. Finish with The Row’s patent loafers for a look that will make trans-seasonal dressing a cinch.

  • Holden two-tone high-rise straight-leg jeans
  • Minimal textured patent-leather loafers

The midi skirt

Suede might come with vintage connotations, but it can feel incredibly modern when styled correctly. Take Saint Laurent’s timeless midi – layer it under Acne Studio’s oversized sweater and finish the look with Gianvito Rossi’s ultra-soft slouch boots for a fresh take on 9-5 dressing.

  • Suede midi skirt
  • Dramatic oversized knitted sweater
  • Eula cotton-poplin shirt
  • Laura 85 leather knee boots

The jacket

Retro silhouettes rendered in suede will more than earn their keep – seek out streamlined designs cast in classic camel colors and they will never date. Re/Done’s boxy, cropped cut, complete with western-style fringing, is the perfect way to add an androgynous touch to Joseph’s sensuous slip, while stacked sneakers and Matrix-style sunglasses keep the look cutting-edge.

  • Cropped fringed suede jacket
  • Cat-eye acetate and gold-tone sunglasses
  • Clea silk-satin maxi dress

The culottes

Liked SS18’s city shorts? Then you’re going to love Vince’s painfully chic suede culottes. Nod to this season’s ’70s trend by keeping your palette subdued and finishing with an elegant blouse, architectural mules and molten gold jewelry. Endlessly wearable, these culottes promise to make lazy weekends infinitely more stylish.

  • Suede culottes
  • Conie croc-effect leather slingback pumps

Over-the-knee boots

Our obsession with all things ’80s shows no signs of abating. The easiest way to dip your toe in the trend (literally), is by adding Alexandre Vauthier’s thigh-high boots to your accessories arsenal. The perfect combination of subtle and statement, they promise to give a whole new meaning to your tried-and-tested evening looks.

  • Alex suede thigh boots
  • Silk-georgette blouse
  • Textured-leather mini skirt
