In February, I said I would be wearing flip flops and slip ons this summer. Well, I will be wearing slip on shoes but I won’t be wearing flip flops much. In updating my wardrobe, I’ve read many guides on how to dress well and a lot of them talk about shoes as well as guides for looking sharp while dressing casually. They talk about what types of shoes go with certain outfits. While slip on shoes, whether they are loafers, moccasins, or canvas slip ons can make you looks sharp while dressing casually, flip flops can’t. So, I will mostly be wearing slip ons this summer, and you should too.
Loafers, leather moccasins, and canvas slip ons can all make your casual outfit look sharp. A nice pair of derbies can even be worn with a casual outfit. These shoes can do that because they are dressy, except the canvas shoes, but less formal than oxfords so they are worn with casual outfits. Flip-flops, however, are the most casual of all the shoes and are to be worn at the pool or on the beach.
Many articles make arguments in favor of this saying that men’s feet don’t look good in flip flops, which is why they say you should even wear slip on shoes at the beach, but that’s not why I’ll mostly be wearing slip on shoes. I want to wear better looking shoes because I want my wardrobe to look better. Not to mention, slip ons can be worn with more outfits in my wardrobe. Especially, brown leather shoes.
I won’t be wearing loafer or derbies much, though. I’ll mostly be wearing some canvas slip on shoes. I just got a pair of Lacoste slip ons and they look good with most of my outfits. I can wear them with jeans, shorts, and chinos. Also, I said before that I have a pair of white pants that seem to only look good with flip flops but my Lacoste slip ons look good with them as well.
Flip flops are good for dressing casually but slip on shoes, whether they are loafers, moccasins, derbies, or canvas slip ons will make your outfits looks sharp. That’s why I’m wearing slip on shoes this summer and why you should, too.
