Hi Abhishek! Thanks for writing in! I have read that “Shoes transform a person’s body language and attitude”, and hence it becomes very important to choose the right ones. Suit is a classic piece of a man’s wardrobe and hence it is worn on many special occasions. From weddings to formal parties to gala dinners, the type of shoes varies. Here, we are gonna give ideas of what shoes to wear for different occasions.
The best shoes to opt for while going to office are formal or dress shoes like derby, oxford, loafers and brogue. These type of shoes complete your formal look and make you look more polished. Match them with your suit. They should ideally be no lighter than the shade of your trousers. Keep it minimalistic and elegant.
Weddings and Formal Parties
If you opt for a tuxedo for a wedding, then the best option is patent leather shoes. If you wanna make statement and look trendy, opt for two-tone shoes or loafers.
When you are invited to a bbq party or a birthday party, you tend to deck up trendy but also keep up the pace with the semi casual outfit. For this, you can try casual boat shoes, espadrilles and sneakers.
Looking to impress your special lady? Then wear a classic black suit with a red tie and well polished leather shoes or monk shoes. Invest in high quality shoes and keep your shoes well-maintained. Their shine and quality will go a long way in completing every outfit.
