I have a pair of sand suede shoes. I'm not sure what colour belt would go best with it, black or brown. Secondly, if I do wear a black belt with it, would a brown messenger bag clash?

Matching your messenger bag to your shoes/belt is probably overkill. I wouldn't worry about it.

Depends on the shade of brown. Chocolate brown would probably be fine, for example. Reddish brown probably would be too good. Black would be OK, but I think a suede belt in a similar color would be the best choice.

for sand suede try pairing it with a tan belt or fabric d ring belt. When wearing sand or tan I would always grab a brown, tan or natural colored fabric bag

I'd also recommend a D ring fabric belt.

I wouldn't be too concerned with matching the messenger bag due to the risk of looking too matched or forced. Something in a shade of brown but not an exact match.
