Suede and Summer
When it comes to wearing Suede, many assume it's only suitable for cooler weather. However, with proper styling and care, Suede can also be worn in warmer weather.
Here are a few tips for wearing Suede during the summer months:
- Choose lighter colors: Lighter-colored suedes, such as beige or light gray, can help reflect the sun's rays and keep you cool.
- Opt for lighter-weight Suede: Kid suede or perforated Suede is more lightweight than other types of Suede and will be more comfortable to wear during warmer weather.
- Pair with lighter fabrics: Pair your suede shoes with breathable fabrics such as linen or cotton to balance the texture.
- Use suede protectant: To protect your shoes or accessories from the elements, apply a suede protectant spray. To keep your suede shoes looking their best, it's essential to care for them properly.
Suede can be worn in all season as well!
Allow us to shed light on why suede stands as the ultimate all-season style:
- Eternal Elegance: Suede's charm lies in its velvety texture and understated allure. Whether adorning your feet in the form of shoes or embracing your wardrobe with clothing, suede never fails to evoke a sense of refinement and poise.
- Season-Defying Colors: From warm earthy tones to cool and vibrant shades, suede flaunts a diverse palette that complements the moods and colors of each season. Celebrate the essence of every time of year with suede's captivating hues.
- Versatile Pairing: Suede effortlessly blends with many fabrics, making it a versatile choice for any ensemble. Whether you seek to dress up for a formal occasion or down for a casual outing, suede seamlessly fits the bill.
- Climate-Friendly Comfort: While suede embraces sophistication, it never compromises on comfort. Its breathable nature ensures that you stay at ease and stylish every season, be it the sun-drenched days of summer or the crispness of winter.
- A Timeless Investment: The suede's durability and timeless appeal make it a wise and rewarding investment. With proper care, suede pieces retain their allure, becoming cherished style companions for years.
Caring for your Suede
Here are a few tips for managing your suede shoes:
- Invest in a suede brush: A suede brush can help restore the nap of your suede shoes and remove any dirt or stains. Gently brush your suede shoes with a suede brush in a back-and-forth motion to keep them looking fresh.
- Use a suede eraser: A suede eraser can remove stubborn stains from your shoes. Rub the eraser over the paint in a circular motion until it's gone.
- Avoid water: Suede shoes are not waterproof (Waxed Suede does have some strong elements of durability with water), so avoiding getting them wet is essential. If your suede shoes get wet, stuff them with newspaper and let them dry naturally away from direct heat sources.
- Store properly: When not wearing your suede shoes, storing them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight is best.
- Avoid storing them in airtight containers, which can cause the Suede to dry out. Suede shoes are a versatile and stylish addition to any wardrobe, and with the proper care and styling, they can be worn all year round
