If you’ve been stuck wearing the same dull box-toe black shoes with all your shirt and tie combos it’s time for an upgrade. I recommend a round toed shoe, but instead of going for black this time, get a little riskier and buy a nice pair of chocolate brown shoes. They are more versatile than black, look phenomenal with almost any color suit-especially navy, hold a shine better than black shoes, and can dress up a pair of fitted jeans with a nice blazer. Pair it with a matching gold buckled belt and your grandfather’s watch and you will look timeless and modern in the same breath.
