What is a dress shoe I often wondered and why do they exist? Why should I own at least a pair or even wear one? I’m going to give you a simple answer, because you’re quite grown and with adulthood you will definitely need a dress shoe even if it’s that one time.
Dress shoes as the term implies are for that occasion where you need to put a comb through your hair, shave that jagged stubble, apply a little gel, be a bit classier, a bit refined and dress like you’re royalty
For the uninitiated looking to be ready when the time beckons or the initiated looking to acquire another pair.
Here are the must have dress shoes and where you can splurge on a pair if required;
Oxfords – Classic. Timeless. Legendary.
My advice would be for first timers, a simple black laced up oxford is always one to invest in as it goes with almost any suit you own and even tuxedo
This comes in a double or single strap but whatever choice will make you look classy and give you that decorous charm.
Brogues / Wingtips
Slightly less dressy than a lace up black oxford, the brogue still remains one of the all-time favorite dress shoes. Preferably in dark brown.
I would recommend that every man has a pair of Chelsea boots. They are multi-functional and can be paired with a pair of jeans and also complete that suit swag.
Not just your everyday knock around loafers, but the dressy loafer coming in velvet, leather or suede. This is guaranteed to make you feel like Hefner for as long as you’ve got them on.
Similar to the Oxfords, a step down in formality but still works with a suit. This is the more casual option in the world of dress shoes. Preferably in suede.
The Leather sneaker
Yes you read right. The leather sneakers are for now a dress shoe as well. They are here to stay and have been paired successfully on numerous occasions with a suit.
There are rules though which should be strictly followed;
*can only been worn with fitting suit trousers hemmed just at the ankle*
