    L1001524Outfit Details:

    Top:  Contemporary Genuine Suede Shift Dress (Now On Sale) 

    Bottom:  White Flare Jeans (Old); Similar here, here and here

    Shoes:  Steve Madden Fringly Sandal (Chestnut Suede, Now On Sale); Also, love these here, here and here

    Bag:  Floto Women’s Saddle Bag (Now On Sale); Also, love these here, here and here

    One of my favorite fabrics for all seasons is suede.  I love this soft fabric because it’s a nice twist on leather, and because it’s perfect for everything from clothing to home decor.  Contrary to what some may feel, suede is not just a cold or cool weather fabric, it can be found in pieces that are suitable for spring, summer and beyond.  The suede surprise in the very versatile piece I’m wearing today, is that it’s not a top by design, it’s actually a short shift dress, that I’ve styled as a top.

    L1001528For this look, I wore this Contemporary Genuine Suede Shift Dress with my white flare jeans.  I accessorized with my Steve Madden Fringly Sandal, and my Floto Women’s Saddle Bag.  I really enjoying styling shorter shift dresses as tops right now, and it is definitely a styling option you may see on the blog more.  I think this styling option is perfect for those who are not comfortable wearing shorter style dresses, and for those who want to increase the styling options for dresses they already own, or want to add to their wardrobe.  Consider trying this dress styling trend, and see how much you can expand your wardrobe and elevate your overall style with the dress as a top look.
