Today let’s talk about shoes. If there is something I am so guilty of buying all the time, is shoes.
Sometimes I think I have a bit of an addiction, I guess I’m just addicted to fashion. Jenny, one of my most stylish friends is married. She too, is a shoe shopaholic and she often finds herself in sticky situations with her hubby (she buys too many shoes!).
There is this pair of a red animal print heel that stays in her trunk, she rocks the pair after leaving home and then back in the trunk. And it’s not the only pair that has found a permanent closet in the trunk!
When it comes to the gentlemen, I’m impressed by how much your shoes have evolved today. Ironically, most of you men still prefer to stay in the black, chocolate brown or oxblood comfort zone.
My dear men…there are more colors out there that can exalt your look to unleash a super suave personality. Exotic shades like a deep maroon which work well with beige or white khakis. You can then top off the look with a denim shirt. If you have a pair of maroon pants, you can bring out a nicely done combo with a dark shade of blue shoes. You can as well explore copper brown, burgundy, burnt amber, peanut, tortilla and cedar.
These shades are perfect for darker pants such as black, juniper green, and navy blue. Lighter shades will also work well especially when you stick to the regular neutrals like beige, gray, white. Gentlemen, if you become a tad flexible with the colors of your shoes, you can easily evoke a very subtle yet fashion-forward statement.
If you have a more outgoing personality; remember my friend Josh? You can take on Chevron Oxfords or Carlos Spain dress shoes. These types usually come in two colors (or more in the same shoe), crafted with a combination of leather and fabric for an exceptionally comfortable feel.
How sleek is that?
Now, imagine yourself in a charcoal gray suit finished off with a pair of Carlos Spains. I bet you’re already smiling just picturing yourself (or your man) in such a bespoke look.
You can add some magic to your step whether it’s a working day or an easy-going weekend. My dearest men, take advantage of the variety of shoe collections out there and you will take more than just a step in that shoe!
Wouldn’t you like to carry yourself like James Bond or even an aristocrat?
