Neutral-coloured shoes are a must-have in any man’s wardrobe, and a classic brown leather lace-up fits the bill perfectly. You can wear your earthy-hued shoes with almost any colour shirt and pants, From weddings to weekend outings, we’ve got you covered on how to colour coordinate your shoes with your outfits.
Read on to see which colours pair best with brown shoes.
Yes, you read that right. If you didn’t know, brown and brown pair just fine together. If we had one tip thought to share, try pairing a brown with a different base tone (like a mahogany brown) with a tone of an opposite hue (like a dark, chocolate brown) for maximum contrast.
WEAR BROWN SHOES WITH ANY COLOR OF CHINOS
As with suit pants, navy chinos work with any shade of brown shoe. Grey chinos look best with a lighter shade of brown, and the same rule applies for wearing black pants with brown shoes (yes, you can wear the two together!) For your classic khaki twill pants, think about a shade of chocolate brown or espresso. Evergreen and burgundy complement a rich mahogany.
PAIR BROWN SHOES WITH DARK JEANS
Brown shoes and blue jeans are a mutual match given their neutral colouring, so don’t think twice about wearing the two together. Add a white or navy knit tee or Oxford or bring in some seasonal colour with a printed button-up or fall-inspired polo.
