The combination of suits and sneakers seems to be something impossible and rare, however, actually this is the go-anywhere, always-appropriate outfit that most men like so much. A look like this is great for almost any occasion, from a date to a business meeting, dinner and church, bar, museum, wedding, a bike ride, a night out, shopping, opera or a sporting event. There is almost no situation, where you’d feel like totally out-of-space wearing a suit with sneakers.
And the question is how to wear a suit with sneakers? It’s definitely possible to pull off this look and look maximum fashion-forward. Everything depends on the style of the suit you choose, as well as the sneakers. There are many styles of sneakers that don’t scream “Sports!” and a lot of suit styles that aren’t too sharp and elegant to be paired with sneakers. Thus a successful casual smart look has a lot to do with choosing the right styles of these garments. Here are a few great style tips on how to wear suits with sneakers and look great.
Wearing a classic black suit with sneakers is more difficult than matching a more casual suit style with a pair of stylish conversation starters. A great example is wearing a light neutral suit with a white shirt and blue sport shoes. Accessorize your look with a blue pocket square and a glue gray tie and you’ll get the most harmonious look ever.
It’s important to pay attention to the color of the sneakers you choose. Try to mix and match it with the color of your suit. Neutral suits look great with bolder colors, like gray with red or sand with blue. Also be picky with the color of your shirt. You can harmonize it with the sole of your sneakers to get a more balanced casual chic look.
Dressing down a suit makes it much easier to pull of this stylish look. Follow these great dress-down tips for the best results:
• Go for a T-shirt, rather than a formal shirt.
• Match your suit pants with a T-shirt, a sports or leather jacket and a cardigan that is in full harmony with your sneakers.
• Combine a suit jacket with jeans and pay attention to the colors.
• Avoid wearing a tie or a bowtie for a more casual look.
Last but not least, try to be confident in the outfits you are wearing. Although it’s always great to hear others’ comments about your style and improve certain things, don’t let your girlfriend plan your outfits and dress yourself like a man.
