In the southern hemisphere where the weather is beginning to take a chilly turn, suede with its luxurious look and feel is the material de’jour. Classic black or blue like the Miu Miu heels at top (£370.83 from net-a-porter) and neutrals such as these pumps by Jimmy Choo (£283.33 from net-a-porter) both feature heavily this season.
Despite the popularity of darker or neutral colors, where suede really makes its mark is in the plethora of jewel toned hues like these ruby red Stuart Weitzman peep toes (Zappos, $398) or these green Steve Madden pumps (Zappos, $89.99).
And even in the Northern hemisphere where things are heating up, suede is still making its mark. Spring/Summer 2012 sees a bright and playful palette of popping colours such bubble gum pink from Dolce Vita (Zappos, $179) and orange from Paris Hilton (new to heels.com, $89.99).
Maybe 2012 really is the year to be persuaded by suede.
