SUEDE ESPADRILLES: A SUPER SOFT LOOK
Suede, which is used for accessories such as purses and shoes, is also known as nubuck, but actually has nothing to do with the skin of a deer, which is a protected species. A more appropriate term for this beautiful material would be reversed leather or velours leather. Suede espadrilles are made from classic leather that has been specially treated to give it that incredibly soft, silky feel.
HOW TO WEAR A PAIR OF SUEDE ESPADRILLES
The timeless elegance of suede espadrilles means they are extremely easy to wear and perfect for countless occasions, from the formal to the relaxed. A pair of suede espadrille wedges would be perfect for a work look (that’s still comfortable), while the La Lyonnaise style would be perfect for enhancing a pretty skater dress for a more casual look.
Top tip: it’s best not to wear your favorite suede espadrilles for the first time if there’s a storm forecast, as water might damage or discolor them. The best solution is to (regularly) waterproof your shoes!
MEN’S SUEDE ESPADRILLES
A charming alternative offering a range of styles, suede is a high-quality material that will lend a touch of elegance and sophistication to a men’s look.
Suede espadrilles make a particularly interesting way to lend a trendy note to a blazer or wool cardigan worn with a white shirt and skinny jeans. For a more casual feel, you can also team them with a flannel shirt and rolled-up chinos.
