Fashion is matter of personal taste and style, if you want to stand out, wearing white pants is already making a statement. In this era of skinny, ripped jeans, nothing can jolt the uninformed faster that being a non-conformist. Add the brown suede, and bingo prepare to turn heads.

Suede Penny Loafers
If suede can take a casual outfit a notch higher, suede loafers can also soften up a dressed up look. Imagine Adam Levine wearing a light blue colored long-sleeved polo tucked over a black chino pants, bowtie, fedora hat and brown suede loafers, wouldnít you just want to copy that look down to his tattoo?
This is my personal favorite as I can wear this look both in the office, corporate or formal events without looking like a freak show. Itís just so sexy and oozing with a strangely homely appeal. I donít know about you but my blue suede shoes are the stuff Elvis strutted his wares on.
Thereís a lot more combination that you can experiment with your suede shoes, donít hesitate to don a pair they are comfortable and warm to the eyes.
One word of advice though, if you are planning drink the night away, donít ever wear your suede shoes, you might regret how they look like in the morning, but then again - just like what Iíve mentioned before, if your suede shoes suffered enough damage, bring them to a shoe repair shop where they will be taken care of fabulously!
