Style Dilemma: What styles of shoe go well with casual summerwear?
Published 05/05/2013 | 05:00
For work, I have brown brogues and no-nonsense black shoes (two pairs of each). When it comes to socialising, I'd like to wear something a little bit more colourful as summer approaches. Any tips? Micheal, via Twitter
Colourful footwear is an easy way to add a dash of fun to a summer look. As well as being very wallet-friendly, Asos's palm-print plimsolls are pretty much summer in a shoe (1 €23.63).
For something a little more subdued, the 'Bounce' by Bertie (2 €85, Dune) is a classic boat shoe given a gentle twist with the contrasting blue sole.
Over at Office, the 'Stoke' slip-on shoe (3 €65) features a navy and tan woven-leather upper, perfect with a pair of tailored shorts for a casual summer outfit.
The vogue for loafers continues, and the green suede pair at Asos (4 €78.78) are pretty sweet. Dune also has a hybrid loafer with tassels in camouflage print (5 €40, Bertie).
