Black & Blue Suiting
Pairing a blue suit with black shoes is an American past time. Over the last decade, style experts has sung the praises of pairing brown shoes with your blue suits tapping to tap into a more European, pushing black footwear to the background. This fall, give traditional American styling nod and rock your black double monk strap shoes with your blue suits (and dark wash denim).
- Like these double monk strap shoes, there are three things want to look for; Quality Leather, Sleek Silhouette and a high shine
- Most blue suits pair well with black shoes, however; hues that are have a darker base will complement them best
- Buttons: Dark suit jacket buttons will look best with black shoes. Next time you see a guy with a navy suit with corozo brown buttons and they paired with black shoes — the difference will be jarring to the eye
- The deep hues and in dark rinse denim are great casual pairing with you black shoes too–just trust me.
