Sneaking into the wardrobe is the unlikely combination of suits and sneakers. The Oxfords, Brogues and Patinas are the go-to choice for footwear alongside suits. However, this combination has been gaining increasing popularity as the sneaker market has been exploding in the past few years. Combining your cool new sneaker with your formal workwear seemed like the next logical step.
This look is hard to pull off as the choices are nearly limitless owing to the number of sneakers in the market. It can take some time for one to find the perfect combination of suits and sneakers that become the hallmark of your style. A few combinations have emerged as winners, which are detailed ahead.
Wearing High Tops with a Suit
This look goes well when the suit trousers are a bit short and cuffed. The pants ending above the top of the shoe give a classy look and look better than when they are spilling out messily over the boot. Getting the colour combination of the look right is paramount as the entire look hinges on that colour combination.
This is a well-accepted look as Converse sneakers give an undeniably urban spin to the formal and classic suit. The colour plays a somewhat less important role as the focus is more on how clean and crisp the shoes look. This pairing up of classics in footwear and formalwear is a good look for most occasions.
Matching the Colour
This is the more subtle look as it includes matching the sneaker colour to your suit. This camouflages the sneaker and helps to elongate your silhouette. Wearing dark brown, navy and black sneakers with the suit as mentioned above colours is a more ‘sneaky’ look and cheeky combination.
