Elvis Presley was on to something when he sang about blue suede shoes. They are fabulous, but how does one wear these, my clients often ask. Below you will see how to wear blue shoes for all occasions…
What To Wear With Dressy Blue Suede Shoes
Dressy blue suede shoes, like the Mezlan plain toe Derby oxford, pair well with light to medium grey slacks and suits. The grey of Ted Baker’s Jay Trim Fit Plaid Wool Suit is a perfect example of the grey you can pair with these blue suede shoes. I highly recommend this look for a party or stylish work environment. Note, you generally will not be wearing navy blue slacks or suits with blue suede shoes.
How To Wear Blue Suede Shoes Casually
Besides the Mezlan and the Lloyd blue suede shoes, the rest of the shoes pictured are to be worn casually. You will be wearing these shoes with lighter grey casual pants like AG’s 5-pocket casual pants in cloud grey. You can also wear a casual blue suede shoe with Paige ‘Federal Transcend’ Slim Straight Leg Jean in ‘fennel seed,’ or as I like to say, tan. Note, you generally will not be wearing navy blue pants or blue jeans with blue suede shoes.
How To Wear Blue Suede Shoes To The Office

What Belt Do I Wear With Blue Suede Shoes?
