Fashion Myth: You Can't Wear Suede In The Summer

July 16, 2008 by Bryn

I know my mother would wholeheartedly disagree, but with seasonless dressing en vogue, fabrics that used to be considered wintery are now being shown off all year round. And one on the forefront of the seasonal flip-flop is suede. For shoes and bags especially, this winter staple has now come out to frolick in the rays of the summer sun. So how does one pull off suede for summer? Well, when you're talking shoes, make sure the style is seasonly appropriate – you don't want to be rocking suede closed-toe booties around town in the middle of a heat wave. Keep your eye out for peep-toed, strappy, or thong styles as these will give your feet more air to breathe.

We love these Adam sandals (booties? sock shoes?) from Dolce Vita ($119).  The thong toe and slouchy ankle keep your feet from getting too warm, and they can even be worn folded over to reveal the metallic lining inside. Dolce Vita has a bunch of other electic season-skimming styles to choose from at budget-friendly prices, so check out their website for more finds.
