There's no doubt about it, the Seventies are back in a big way and a great way to try this trend is to slink on a bit of suede. Surely the fabric of the decade (or maybe that was polyester?!) a touch of suede can instantly ignite your look with a little of that decadent 70's glamour. Whilst the bohemian fringing is, of course, a festival goers fave, a sleek and simple suede number can also transcend trends and become a wardrobe staple for years to come. I've picked out a few, from either end of the pricing scale too, so whether you would like to invest or you are just looking for a simple piece to trial the trend, there's something for everyone. I have to admit I'm rather partial to that fringed Boohoo number myself, it's khaki not black as it appears in the pic and it's a steal at just £15!
At the other end of the scale there are the Topshop and Warehouse versions, a little more like the classic biker or western jackets that you could wear for longer than fringing is 'du jour' and the Warehouse one especially with it's gorgeous pale grey colouring makes a welcome change from the usual heavy leather bikers; it's a summer evening worthy cover up for sure.
If a jacket is just not your thing, then nab a waistcoat, fringed or otherwise, for a taste of vintage glam. I actually have a vintage suede number that I blogged about here, but if I didn't, I'd be very tempted to invest in one! They make a great layering piece to throw over dresses or oversized tees and add another element to your look. I love a good jacket and I'd wear any of these!
