Why You Need a Suede Shirt Dress in Your Closet

Let’s face it – suede is everywhere! Suede skirts, vests, shoes, bags, hats and jackets have been all over the stores and streets lately. If you’re on the border about this trend, I have some good news for you: you don’t necessarily have to be a hippie or flower child to be able to incorporate these pieces into your wardrobe too. Suede has elevated from just a 70’s trend to a boho chic statement. The fabric is lighter, comes in more color options, and is much more fashion forward and contemporary. You might typically think of suede as a fall and winter only trend (you might remember my tan suede skirt I got last fall) but with the right pieces it can easily be transitioned into spring and summer.

When I saw this shirtdress from PinkBlush, I realized that it was essential to add a suede dress to my closet. From the material to the color, it’s a great transitioning piece. At first I thought it was made out of denim, but when I realized it was faux suede I loved that it made it unique and unexpected. Light blue is a perfect spring color, so I paired it with my favorite pastel statement necklace to keep the look very light and spring-y. This tunic is great because it can be worn as a dress or shirt and be paired over a white jean, with sandals, flats or booties. There’s so many different ways you could style this piece with the right accessories! The cinched waist was great way for me to adjust the length since it was a little long on me.

Unfortunately this dress just went out of stock, but you can add yourself to the waiting list and will be notified right away when it’s available for purchase. I’ve also linked some similar suede dresses below under the outfit details.

PinkBlush started out as a maternity store but has grown their site to offer the latest and greatest trends to every woman! Their women’s sizes also tend to run a little on the large size, so keep that in mind when ordering. I’ve partnered with PinkBlush to give one follower an opportunity to check out and shop their site too. Scroll down to the bottom of this post to enter our giveaway for a $50 gift card!
