For some guys, there is much thought that goes into putting together what you are going to wear for the day. For other guys, there is little no thought into what they put on, or how they look leaving the house in the morning. Neither scenario or guy is wrong nor right, it is simply a matter of preference of that particular guy. However, if you are the man who believes in first impressions, you are probably the guy that puts much thought and effort into what he wears before leaving the house.
Spring and summer opened the door for a sockless society. This was an amazing thing for some, because it was one less thing you had to consider when getting dressed. It took almost any outfit or ensemble from bland to a modern, trendy look from a magazine shoot. The sockless society is also something that does not have an age restriction; children to a grandfather could wear it. It is the simplest trend that adds a lot of flare, without too much.
What shoes make the sockless look explode, that is preference. The look can be achieved with any shoe; a monk strap, wing tip, loafer, boat shoe, or a regular lace up oxford. The tried and true favorites have to be the loafer and boat shoe. Both add an unmistakable touch of class and sophistication. The beauty of both of these shoes is, they can also be worn with shorts or pants.
The slip-on loafer offers a very well-dressed look, if you like the refined and sophisticated look. Loafers can be sleek and classic regardless of material or ornaments; suede, leather, tassels, embroidery, etc. Add a touch of elegance with your loafers in a t-shirt or simple button-down. Pair your favorite pair of shorts or pants (twill, denim or slacks). Unlike the boat shoe, the loafer goes from day to night without effort if you are going from work to play
The Boat Shoe:
The boat shoe has made a come back in the world of fashion in the last few years. The nautical boat shoe is known to have a very east coast essence that has spread throughout the country like wildfire. The boat shoe is however considered a very casual, dress down type of shoe. It can have less structure regarding the construction than a loafer in some cases and can have functional or nonfunctional laces depending on the brand, value and quality. A button-down with rolled sleeve is primarily the type of shirt you see many men wearing with the nautical boat shoe. It is an option for various people, however boring for others (Damaur men).
So the next time you go out, try something new on…or not in this case. Go sockless with a pair of loafers or boat shoes to pop a little dapper into an ordinary shirt and pants ensemble.
Shop Damaur.com for simple casual wear that is perfect for either of these shoe types.
