Suede Days: Olive + Navy

Nothing is better than finding a gem, like a vintage suede fringe vest. Even better that it's a rich olive hue, an "IT" color trend. My favorite thing to do when I find unique pieces such as this one, is color coordinate the crap out of it. I LOVE suede, particularly in shoes (when I can find a great pair that's lined so the material doesn't stretch/wear as quickly) and I immediately thought to pair my navy suede booties with this vest. Keeping the material consistent, and varying color, lends balance and quiet attention to make for a killer outfit. The key to achieving this? Think of your colors. Don't pair loud with loud - think cool, calm, collected. Like olive, and navy.

Major Keys:

"Keeping the material consistent, and varying color, lends balance and quiet attention to make for a killer outfit."
"Think of your colors. Don't pair loud with loud."
"Consider your suede. Find a great piece that's lined, so the material won't stretch or wear as quickly." (Quality, people, quality.)
