How To Coordinate Clothing With Footwear


It is very important for a man to look well dressed. If you want to be successful, you need to dress properly because if you go to a special event and you look unkempt you will leave a bad impression. Clothing footwear is very important because the shoes are easy to spot and a lot of people look at a person’s shoes.

Step 1

If you want to look well dressed, you got to match your clothing footwear. The first thing to know is how to match your shoes with your pants. The shoes must have a similar color with the pants because they are next to each other and, if the pants are red and you will wear yellow shoes, you will look like a parrot.

Step 2

The next thing that must match your clothing footwear is the shirt. It is recommended, if you go to a special event, to wear black shoes if you have a white or another light colored shirt. You can choose whatever color makes you happy, but always remember that it is not recommended to wear more than tree colors at the same time.

Step 3

If you need to go to a special event, you will wear a tie. A tie will have a similar color with the rest of your suit, except the shirt. If you have a black, dark blue or another dark colored tie, you will need dark clothing footwear. If you have a white, yellow or another light colored tie, you will need light colored clothing footwear and so on. The basic rule is tie color equals shoes color.

Step 4

Another item that you must match with your clothing footwear is the belt. Usually the belt will be from the same material as your shoes. If you wear leather shoes, it is best to wear a leather belt. If you wear plastic shoes, it is recommended to wear a plastic belt. In most cases it is recommended that the belt and the shoes have the same color.

Step 5

In winter, or when the weather is cold, you will wear overcoats. To match your overcoat with your clothing footwear, you need to think if you have a short or a long overcoat. If your overcoat is short, you can match your shoes with the pants or the overcoat, but, if your overcoat is long, you need to match your shoes with the long overcoat.


When you wear clothing footwear, you do not want your shoes to be the center of attention because you need to be the center of attention, not your shoes. Never wear shoes very strong colored. Never wear sport shoes with a tuxedo or a gym suit with elegant leather shoes.

In conclusion, if you want to look good, you must follow some basic rules when you choose your clothing footwear. The most basic and important rule is not to wear elegant clothing with sport clothing. If you want to use those beautiful sport shoes, take them at the gym or when you run. Never think that you will invent a new style, the only thing that you will accomplish is to make a full of yourself.
