This week I’m going to help you put your best foot forward. That’s right, I’m talking about shoes, particularly for the gents.
One of the first things people will notice about you, believe it or not, is the shoes you are wearing. If you’ve got on out of style or dingy shoes on, then what does that say about you?
It CAN be taken as if you don’t care about the details of your appearance enough to button up your look with the full head-to-toe ensemble. If someone thinks that, they’ll subconsciously carry that opinion of you over into other situations or decisions.
Trying to land a big new client?
Trying to impress a colleague or the boss?
Going on a job interview…
Or maybe asking out that dream girl?
Be sure to show style in EVERYthing you do AND wear.
My tips for this year –
Avoid square toes in your dress shoes.
There are so many great options available – try a few of these out…
Cap Toed Oxfords – In this style of shoe – an extra piece of leather – the so-called toe cap – is added across the toe box, and they also feature a heel cap. This is the most popular style of shoe worn with suits across the globe.
Wing Tips are a classic and always look fantastic. There’s just something special about the style of a great wingtip shoe that upgrades whatever look you are going for.
Monk Straps – A monk shoe is a style of shoe with no lacing, closed by a buckle and strap. It is also known as a monk strap, and has been described as the “most advanced” dress shoe.
All of these options bring versatility to your wardrobe and look great with jeans, suits, and modern casual wear.
Plus they’ll say you’re fashion forward, not stuck in the past.
