Gentleman’s guide to buying shoes for a formal occasion

When it comes to adding that icing on the cake that is an outfit, footwear fits the notion perfectly. Hence, a man should put much thought in ensuring that his shoes complement his outfit like a match made in heaven.

When it comes to formal occasions, it is of utmost importance that you pick the absolute right shoe. But with so many choices of footwear available, ranging from black leather shoes to brown suedes, one cannot help but be lost in the sea of options.

But, Fret not!

Here is our quick 3 step guide to help you pick the right shoe-

3 tips and tricks to picking the right shoe.

A shoe that goes with your outfit is the key to create a good first-hand impression. And here, a leather shoe is a great way to kick start things. But before you go shoe shopping, here are 3 tips and tricks to ensure that you get the perfect formal look –

1. Keep it simple and suave

They say – simplicity is the ultimate sophistication and this applies to shoe designs as well. So, instead of going for something overtly grandiose, try something simple and clean. Trust us, you will love the suave and debonair look.

2. Ensure that the tone and design fits the occasion

The shoe should be appropriate for the occasion you are wearing it too. For instance, imagine how scandalous and ridiculous it would be to wear a brightly tanned reddish brown leather shoe at a sad occasion. Avoid wearing an inappropriate shoe at all costs.

3. Put on a matching shoe-belt combo

The belt is one of the first few things that register in the gaze of an onlooker. Which is why having a matching belt buckle and shoe provides an immaculate impression of the wearer.
