If you’re starting to bulk up your winter holiday wardrobe, you may want to consider something a bit surprising: suede, the more colorful the better. Yes, puzzlingly yet delightfully, designers across the circuit implemented the brushed leather — generally reserved for cold weather — in their resort lineups, some in surf-bright blues and pinks, such as at Emilio Pucci (above, right), and some in neutral deerskin-hues, such as with Ports 1961 (above, left). Evidently, skin is in, though not in your typical beach-body way.
