Question for the groom fashion expert: my guy wants to wear his favorite pair of brown dress shoes to the wedding, and I really want to see him in a nice pair of charcoal gray slacks with a button up shirt (I'm leaning towards a light pink pinkstripe. maybe purple).
Can this work? Any advice here? Being a girl who wears a black yoga suit out everywhere, I need fashion help.
Ok, they aren't wing tips, but they are pretty much this color (maybe a bit darker).
I say yes! Let the man wear his favorite shoes.
And I searched the Style Guy to back me up. Here's what I found:
Q: I often see men who know how to dress well wearing gray suits with brown shoes and a brown belt. It seems like black would go better than brown with a gray suit, but maybe there is something I don’t know.
A: Either black or brown shoes are “correct” with a gray suit. There is a movement toward brown shoes, I think, because they offer more potential in the patina department. Great brown shoes look luxurious. If the suit is dark gray, however, the shoes, if brown, should be dark brown.
Jelsen broke this rule, wearing honey-brown shoes with a dark suit, and he *rules*
So there you have it.
