Ask a woman how many pairs of shoes she has in her closet, and she’ll most probably give you an answer in the high double digits. It doesn’t have to as complicated for men. In this article, we give you 4 pairs of shoes that are essential to your wardrobe. From casual weekends to formal occasions, these pairs will be a perfect fit to any event.
Cool and comfortable sneakers
Sneakers are versatile. You can wear them during the weekends, to the bar, casual outings and even to dress-down Fridays at the office (if your company dress code permits). And there are a wide-range of styles that you can choose from. You can either go for the classic white minimalist pair, a bold coloured pair or high-fashion designer sneakers that can take your casual wear to the next level.
Brown leather boots
Boots aren’t just for winter or for a hike through the woods. Wear your lace-up boots with your favourite pair of jeans and you’re ready for a casual and relaxed weekend. This pair doesn’t only keep your feet warm, they’re also comfortable for walks or commutes.
Looking for a more formal option? Go for dress boots which are tailor made and work well with suits. For a more casual option, opt for desert boots which are more dressed up than your sneakers but not as reserved as its leather counterpart.
Smart casual shoes
For casual Fridays at the office, try a pair of lace-up brogues or loafers. Lace-up brogues are more proper than sneakers but not as dressy as formal dress shoes. Slip on loafers in the meantime are comfortable and can transition from a day to a night ensemble. If you’re travelling, loafers are a versatile pair that you can pack in your suitcase.
Formal dress shoes
Formal dress shoes can either be black or brown with a simple and classic style. Perfect for business meetings, weddings and other formal events, this pair will give your formal wear a polished look from head to toe.
Selecting the right shoe to go with your casual or formal look doesn’t have to be rocket science. Having these 4 pairs on hand in your closet can give you the confidence that you will always have a pair appropriate to the occasion.
