A badly matched or scruffy pair of shoes can ruin a perfectly good suit. Smart shoes should be just that – smart and well matched to your outfit, with not a scuff to be seen. But with so many choices – brogues, loafers, patent shoes, desert boots...how do you pick the right shoes for the right suit and occasion?
It’s not just women who need to consider their shoes when it comes to putting an outfit together. While it’s the easiest option to keep one pair of formal shoes in the depths of your wardrobe that you can pull out whenever a wedding or black tie event crops up, it’s certainly not the best option. What goes well with your tuxedo might look odd with your light grey summer suit.
Give yourself the luxury of choice when selecting an outfit. If you want to avoid resorting to that one pair of tuxedo shoes you’ve had since college then it can help to slowly build up your shoe collection. A good staple shoe collection should always include a pair of patent tuxedo shoes. These are high gloss and lacquered, adding an attractive shine to your black tie ensemble. Next in your collection should come brogues in black and tan. Brogues, notable for their perforated decoration, are the working man’s saviour – comfortable and formal, but not so formal that they look out-of-place when you go to the bar with colleagues after work. They can even take you to your chill-out time at the weekend, whether you’re going for lunch in town, or dancing the night away.
Next on your list should be Chelsea boots. These will serve you well through the wetter spring, winter and autumn months – formal and ideal for wearing with suit pants, but protective and warm too. Tan desert boots will work just as well – especially with grey or blue suits, but never with black.
