Festival look: The Suede Short

Thursday, 6 August 2015

 "I change shapes just to hide in this place, But I'm still, I'm still an animal" - Mike Snow's 'Animal'...
Suede has been a fabric I have long loved, ever since I could remember wearing clothes. It probably has something to do with the mass of Clark's desert shoes my father used to buy. There's just something about the fabric that is just so timeless and versatile, that no matter the season, it can be dressed up and dressed down, a true winner! I'm not really one to care about the 'latest' fashion trend (I mean I am still SO obsessed with wearing skorts, even though they are sooo last season!) I usually tend to just go with whatever floats my boat really. But I couldn't help but jump on the band wagon this summer when I learnt that suede was back and it was here to stay (well for the summer at least). 
Now being a student, newly graduated and unemployed, suede clothes, regardless of the quality were stretching my non-existent budget a fair bit, and so I nearly gave up all hope of rocking a suede item this summer! Until I found these shorts - OMG life made! I was the happiest bunny when I found these in H&M, that I just had to have them right away hehe!
They're from their coachella collection, which I am obsessed with, as I love all things festival and hippy galore! And, and - here comes the good bit...they were only £5.99! Do I hear bargain or what? Now I know you're probably wondering why I'm getting so happy about a pair of shorts, but if you all knew my love for suede and a good bargain then you would understand why.

I decided to create a look around the shorts and went for a festival look, which has a hint of safari girl chic about it too, I mean I've never actually been on a real safari, but if I was to, this is the outfit I would wear, hands down! I've also filmed an OOTD video on my youtube channel for this look, so you can watch that here, if you wish! :)
Paired with my trusty boohoo fedora, which I just can't seem to take off (hint: it just may well be superglued to my head!) some tan builder boots, and some fly-away pig tails, I have created a look that I think is perfect for any festival!
