Fab Footwear: Bold Colored Suede
Go bold or go home. Suede takes center stage in deep jewel tones like burgundy, plum, emerald, and cobalt. With color this bold, it’s not about fitting in; it’s about standing out. Color this deep and striking should be flaunted, so when shoes go bold they act like a jewelry piece. Don’t go matchy-matchy. Go for color-blocking or mixing complementary shades. If you’re not ready for a full-out color statement, keep the rest of your look neutral and let a brilliantly hued shoe do the talking.
