As we know , sneakers add a tint of youthfulness to looks , an edge to the simplest of clothing and extra credit to colors . Breaking all the cliches , sneakers can be worn with formals too shooting an unpredicted twist to the most simple and basic silhouettes . As far as fashion is concerned , This look can be carried off with an edgy and a cool look when done right , and look nonchalant and unkempt when done wrong ! So , to maintain a classic and a stylish combination of a formal attire with sneakers i have come up with a guide for you guys to easily slip in the prefect look this season , without looking daggy or out of place 🙂
RULE NO 1 # FLAWLESS TAILORING IS AN UTTER NECESSITY
Before even considering on wearing sneakers with formal attire , make sure your outfit is perfectly tailored . Ensure that your pants are fitted and not baggy and the blazers scoop your natural shape . A slimmer silhouette will work wonders when complementing with sneakers which will further give a sleeker , slick aesthetic . Once you have taken care of the fittings , choosing sneakers will not be a problem.
RULE NO 2 #RESPECT THE DRESS CODE
Do not disrespect the dress codes or formality . One should know when it wont/will give justice to the event you are going to. Try on sneakers for an appropriate event and keep up a dignified and confident approach while experimenting with styles of sneakers. For a fine explanation of the trend , try wearing darker colors and keep the bright , fun colors for the right occasions.
RULE NO 3 #KEEP IT SIMPLE
When in doubt, keep your formal look simple with a casual sneaker which will give sharpness to the outfit altogether . Classic black , white or navy pairs can be effective and will not disregard the dress code as well.
RULE 4 #KEEP THE CORRECT PROPORTION
Keep in mind that your outfit should be in proportion with your footwear. Try out different styles and see how each one looks with the whole attire ( I’m sure everyone does that already 😛 ) Balance a bold blazer with a turtleneck and dress up the minimalist outfit with brighter colors. Refrain yourself from slimmer soles as it portray underdressed and thicker to show it more bulky !
RULE 5#EXPERIMENT DIFFERENT MATERIALS WHEN IT COMES TO SNEAKERS
So , when it comes to pairing up sneakers with the formal attire , the material is something one should keep in mind , go for a luxury material when you want to give it a complete formal look. For eg go for a leather trainer to give an edge to the formal look. Casual / Canvas style maybe pretty old now but it should not be underestimating. Vans and Canvas are the companies which boast simple styles and come in variety of materials like velvet , suede and leather which are worn according to the look.
RULE NO 6 #NEVER OVERLOOK GROOMING
Don’t forget how hairstyles and beards are an important factor to enhance the whole look. A well styled hair and a well trimmed beard will go perfectly with your formal attire while trying out the trend making the whole look more put together , clean , a polished aesthetic and not to forget HOT ! 😉 . Go for a nice blow dry and a dash of matt hair mousse for the refined look and a more youthful edge too . Get yourself the type of beard that goes with your face but neat !
These 6 rules and you are good to go for your perfect date , business meeting or a casual outing during the day . Just keep in mind how to mix up to make it fun yet not losing the edge and charm of the outfit . Play with colors , be it with your attire or the footwear. Go bold and sexy by choosing colors like silver , golden or even printed sneakers.
Not to forget , accessorize your look with a classy watch and sunglasses.
Remember ,” Being a true Gentleman never goes out of fashion ! “ 😉
