Suede fabric was definitely a favorite '70s trend. This soft and delicate fabric is worth investing in as it is still one of many fashion lover favorite today. The issue is that there is a misconception that suede can only be styled in the cold weather months almost like leather. I am here to tell you that this is totally not the case and that you can pull off the look without breaking the bank. Faux suede shoes, clothing and accessories are as fashionable as the real thing.
