Shop the trend: Suede skirts we’re lusting after

Olivia Palermo turned heads during New York Fashion Week when she stepped out in a gorgeous tan suede skirt, which turned out to be a new season piece from high street favourite M&S.

Days later Alexa Chung was spotted wearing the same skirt, and style queens really began to take notice.

The mid-calf length skirt has since gained cult status and has been spotted on the pages of Vogue, Glamour and Red to name but a few.

Us mere mortals won't be able to get our hands on it until May 14th when it hits Irish stores, and with a hefty price tag of £199 (€278) it certainly won't be accessible to everyone. Fear not though, as we've rounded up some other high street suede options that will see you through SS15 without a hitch…

This gorgeous button down skirt can be worn alone or as part of the co-ord set, but we'd team it with a crisp white shirt for a chic spring look.
