The Shoe of the Season: How to Wear it On Any Occasion

I’ve often heard my Father refer to the sock-less look as the “Rich Guy” look, but really it is the summer look with sophisticated style.  The loafer is the shoe of the season, bottom line.  Last season it was the monk strap, wing tips are acceptable in every season, but for spring/summer occasions  don’t forget about your loafers.  photo-1

Loafers can be worn in many ways with many wardrobes.  Suit and tie?  Check.  Jeans and a T-shirt?  Check.  Shorts, button down, and jacket?  Check.

I really admire a loafer with quality tapered and hemmed pants.  That means, the pant fits nice and slim and there is no break at the bottom.  When the weather is warm, you want people to see your bare ankle or your stylish socks, so don’t have your pants be longer than they should and end up looking like Gumby.57e343adb7d92e74168e9ac605201741

If you’re wearing a suit and tie, the sock-less loafer will compliment it greatly.  Navy suit calls for navy, tan, or brown loafers in this type of weather.  Wear this look to a wedding or cocktail party and you’ll be sure to have that J Norman look.40114a5077e5f080bf90443ebba0532d

If you’re wearing shorts and a button down, the sock-less loafer look can really be utilized. Remember, when wearing shorts, NEVER WEAR SOCKS WITH LOAFERS OR BOAT SHOES.  This is my rule, not everyone’s rule, and I suggest you follow.  Match a nice pair of red loafers with blue shorts and a light button down at the country club the next time you head up.  986b13f44de048f8188ce7000613fa32

Dress pants/jeans, T-shirt/button down with jacket…  Feel free to wear socks with your loafers if you’d like, but once again, sock-less will stun.  Rock a pair of brown/black loafers with your dark/light jeans and make sure you coordinate so you look, simply put, like a boss.  e833ed5afbc4ca25aad69415733382db
