For ladies, the common styles of suede shoes come in either boots or pumps. A suede shoe is commonly associated with the fall season but is fine to wear anytime --- as long as it's not raining. If you've got a really nice pair of suede shoes sitting in your closet but you're not quite sure what to wear with them, start off by deciding on a shirt. After that ideas about the rest of your outfit may start to flow.
Don't overdo it with the suede material. Too much suede may start to look like you're auditioning for a rocker video. So if you're planning on an outfit with suede shoes, don't try to force it by looking for a matching suede shirt. It is overkill, plain and simple --- especially when you try to match the colors, too.
If you're planning to wear a pair of suede pumps, match it with a figure-flattering silk button down blouse, preferably white. The silk contrasts with the suede material of the shoes and adds some balance to the outfit. Paired with a dark pencil skirt this is a fitting look for an interview or even a work outfit.
Flowy Tunic Shirt
If you're planning to wear a pair of suede boots, which is more of a casual look, go with a flowing, loose tunic shirt made of cotton, rayon, wool or a similar fabric. A flowing tunic instantly gives your outfit more of a "boho" look. The tunic can also have a few ruffles or other adornments, but shouldn't be too eye-catching as the suede boots are the main attraction for this outfit. Pick a solid-color tunic shirt. Again, multiple colors or patterns may take the attention away from those hot suede boots. You can wear a pair of jeggings (legging jeans) or regular slim-fit jeans with this outfit.
Sometimes a nice solid-colored form fitting turtleneck is the perfect match with a pair of suede pumps or boots. A fitted turtleneck is sexy and conservative at the same time, which is why you can wear it with either shoe style to rave reviews. As for the bottoms, everything from a calf-length skirt to a pair of boot-cut jeans works.
