A Guide to Dress Shoes and Casual Sneakers

The hot and humid days are upon us and while that unfortunately means you're losing sartorial options in an effort to keep cool in the heat, that gives you more chances to play around with your footwear. We present some options, in collaboration with Pedro.

Dress Shoes

Expand your colour options instead of just sticking to dreary black. Try on a brown- or cognac-coloured pair, which still maintains your professionalism while giving a dash of colour to your outfit. And when you're not wearing a belt, try matching your shoes with your bag instead.

Instead of oxford shoes, experiment instead with derby footwear. The latter can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

Casual Shoes

White sneakers are the staple for the summer season. If you're looking for more character, try a two-tone option instead - dominantly white with a red stripe, for example.

It's also not a sin anymore to wear sneakers with a suit. The key is to break up your suit with a pair of denim jeans or chinos instead. And on weekends, why not try dressy sandals instead of boat shoes?
