It’s easy to forget it’s winter in a place that never snows and doesn’t actually get cold. When dressing for a Los Angeles winter, you need to choose pieces that evoke the winter spirit yet nix any extra wool, fur, and down filling that aren’t necessary in our warm climate.
Suede is my go-to this winter season. Suede looks, feels, and smells amazing and can be interpreted in endless ways. Here are four ways you can introduce suede into your winter wardrobe while following my mantra of investing in timeless, classic pieces.
