Anyone who says suede shoes are solely a fall and winter staple shouldn’t be trusted, at least when it comes to wardrobe advice. Summer suede is in full force this season, at least when it comes to accessories, and we’re here to tell you not to be afraid. The sound might be initially off-putting, but remember, you wear leather sandals all summer long–suede isn’t going to overheat you any more than that will.
In fact, the textured material gives a very luxe and bohemian finish that correlates easily with many summer wardrobes. I especially love suede sandals because the material takes color so well, which makes the sandals especially vivid. If you want some examples of how to wear them, look no further than Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Chrissy Teigen.
Summer always seems to go by in the blink of an eye, but because of suede’s traditional associations with cooler weather, these sandals will help ease the transition to fall! Check out our favorites below.
