There are so few fashion rules that deserve conviction, but matching belt and shoes is one of them, especially if its tan (light brown). If you have a tan leather belt with a matching beauty of a shoe, you can wear just about anything, tuck your shirt into your pants, and get away with it. Wether you are mixing prints or whacking out on color, your tan shoe and belt pairing will create an intentionally stylish appearance.
Where To Find Matching Tan Belt & Shoes
A perfect matching belt and shoe pairing right now is this Ted Baker ‘Rogrr cape toe oxford with this Allen Edmonds belt in Walnut. The crisp tan will go with grey slacks, tan chinos and denim. The client I put it on yesterday particularly enjoyed the lace choice. The shoe comes with both brown and blue shoes laces.
You Have Some, But Need A Belt
If you have a pair of shoes already that you love and no belt, take one shoe with you to the store and compare it directly to the belt options available. My favorite resources for men’s belts is Nordstrom and Macy’s. Remember to stay away from belts that like to use your belly for advertising. Brands guilty of such nonsense are Gucci, Salvatore Ferragamo, and Fendi. If you are going to wear their brands, they should be paying you, not the other way around.
