Suede is an essential. It has its place high up on the list of textures we love to wear year round. So when Hobo asked Natalie and I to style some of their new suede hide collection bags for not just new season, but for every season going forward, we were super excited. It felt perfect because suede was always a part of our style growing up on the west coast. It’s bohemian and earthy; suitable for the majority of the occasions we found ourselves in. Most of the time we were outdoors. With Hobo suede, we find ourselves carrying along with us every day that west coast spirit and state of mind. It’s hard for us to leave the house without a little bit of back home with us in some way.
Here I styled the Sable fringed clutch with tones that reminded me of the Southwestern desert. A reminder of our family road trips to Las Vegas when we were children. The desert was my favorite destination because I liked the way the sunsets felt drawn out there and I could watch them all the way until they disappeared behind the mountains. My vintage striped blazer reminds me of the desert dirt and sunsets in the distance. An array of neutrals and tans broken up by a leather skirt. The best sort of canvas for a bag like this that takes so much from the best of both worlds.
The slouchy Eclipse bag is my other favorite Hobo suede hide bag. Oversized but not too overwhelming; it holds almost my whole life without weighing me down. It’s the ultimate weekender bag, but I loved the idea of bringing out another side of it and dressing it up for something more special. This two piece skirt and crop blouse set is my way of adding a feminine touch. The classic tan trench is my way of slipping into fall slowly. The red mules for the right amount of bold color pop to complement that tans. All of a sudden, the Eclipse is ready for an event in the city, or dinner with my man.
Now let me ask you, which Hobo suede is your favorite? And how would you style it? I love finding new ways to take suede to the next level, just as much as I love finding ways to keep things classic.
