HOW TO MATCH DRESS SHOES WITH SUITS


Matching suits with shoes! We do this every time...

Easy, right?

Black shoes go with any suit since black is neutral…”

Wrong!

Not with brown suits.

There are 3 main shoe colors:

Black , brown and oxblood/burgundy

And they don’t just go with any of the 5 suit colors:
  • Navy blue
  • Light or medium-gray
  • Charcoal gray
  • Brown
  • Black
The wrong shoes can ruin even your best suit. So what are all the right combos?

Keep on reading to find out (and learn to master them).



Black suit

A black suit warrants black shoes because any shade of brown will offer a stark contrast, shifting attention away from your suit instead of enhancing it.


Navy suit

You may think that it makes most sense to wear black, but in reality, black shoes give the suit a dull appearance. Wear dark-brown or tan shoes to accentuate your navy suiting.


Blue suit

If you’re wearing a rich blue suit, your choice of shoe should depend on the colour itself and the accessories you’re pairing it with. If you opt for cool-toned accessories, pick black shoes and balance vibrant saturated accessories with a dark-brown or tan shoe.


Brown suit

As far as a true brown suit goes, brown shoes are what you should opt for. You can pick dark- or light-brown shoes depending on whether you want to create a subtle contrast or keep things seamless.


Grey suit

If you’re wondering what shoes to pair with your favourite grey suit, the good news is that you’ll be spoilt for choice. Grey lends itself well to both black and brown shoes, so all you have to do is pick a colour on the basis of the other elements such as your shirt, tie and pocket square.


Dark-green suit

Dusty colours pair well with other earthy colours, so highlight your olive-green suit’s brown tones by picking a mid-brown shoe.


White or champagne

If you’re wearing a white, cream or champagne coloured suit, your options are aplenty. Choose white shoes for a summery look, rich blue ones to inject colour and tan or grey ones if you want to balance out the white elements.
