Brown Suede For Summer

While some may stick to sheer fabrics and cotton for the summer, I like to play with suede. Although I’ve neglected this brown suede vest for several years, I decided to begin implementing it into my looks. I know not many would wear a suede vest during the summer but I absolutely love it (how can you not?!). I’ve also grown to love wearing brown! The weird thing is I never liked wearing brown during grade school because of the way it blended with my skin tone. As I grew up, I learned that brown actually favored me. For the past few years, I have been appreciating the way brown compliments my skin tone.

I’m unsure of where this vest and shirt were purchased. I’ve had the shirt for at least 8 years and as previously mentioned, the vest is ancient as well.

Wearing a suede vest did not cause my temperature to rise, therefore I know it will be a great staple for the summer.

If your’e not new to the blog then you may remember this skirt as I wore it last year to an event at Bergdorf Goodman. I’ve always loved this skirt and because it’s neutral, it’s easy to pair with a lot of pieces.

I love the way this skirt moves in the wind as I’ve always been a sucker for flowy pieces.

If I could pair this bag with all my looks, I would (I love it that much).

Topping this look off with a turban was easy breezy, especially since I wear turbans a lot more than you may see on this blog. That usually gets seen on my snapchat (@queenoyinkan).

One Thought to “Brown Suede For Summer”

  1. Comfort

    Actually I don’t wear suede in summer. Everything depends on how fleshy you are. Suede always makes me feel warm. I wear suede all season except summer. Belive me brown color really complement your skin beautifully. The flown skirt reminds me of Marilyn Monroe dress. Ironically, the kind of suede nowadays is weightless. The good old days , suede is a bundle on its own. God bless you Oyin. Amen
