Give your outfit a polished finish with a pair of brown shoes. Footwear in the classic shade can be teamed with multiple looks to stylish effect - like your boho-chic crochet dress for the ladies or some well-tailored trousers for the gents.
Brown shoes: the underestimated neutral
We all tend to gravitate toward black when we’re looking for that universal footwear choice, but brown coloured shoes are definitely just as versatile. Guys, if you’re looking for loafers that will work well with your 9-to-5 uniform of an Oxford shirt, khaki trousers and a leather belt, go for a pair in brown leather. Just add an extra-hot latte to keep you feeling as sharp as you look. Ladies, when the temperatures start rising and concert season is in full swing, pack all of your festival essentials - including those cute brown espadrilles - in a large straw tote bag (flower crown not included). Your little ones can even get in on some preppy outfit action by teaming brown footwear with a solid-coloured polo top and coordinating leggings.
Leather, metallics and suede: the perfect materials for your brown shoes
Brown coloured shoes feature a variety of finishes and embellishments. Ladies, wear luxe leather brogues with a maxi skirt and a silk blouse for a street-style-inspired outfit. Guys, go for a weekend-ready aesthetic and team tan boat shoes with slim-fitting shorts and an army-green crew-neck tee. If you’re feeling extra fancy, top off your ensemble with a straw hat. When you want to stay comfy at your next weekend brunch date, but still wear something with a bit of the wow factor, go for brown metallic trainers, distressed jeans and an oversized jumper.
