If you are someone who is deeply invested in looking sharp, you want to start at the top of your head and work all the way down to your heels, and that means that you need to take some time to think about your shoes. Whether you are dressed for the office or the beach, the shoes that you wear make a statement, and it is worth your while to think about what you want to put on your feet in 2013.
Elaborate Wing Tips
It doesn’t get much more classic than Wing Tip shoes, but even this dignified beauty is getting a bit of an upgrade. In the first place, several major shoe designers are putting a little more tooling into the uppers of their wingtips, giving them a subtly more elaborate design. After that, you’ll also find that wingtips are being developed in more than their classic black. Look for dark brown wingtips to compliment an outfit that does not need to be entirely formal, or even caramel-colored wingtips for a lighter summer outfit.
When it comes to sandals, you have several choices this year. In the first place, there is nothing wrong with buckled leather sandals. These clunky sandals have withstood the test of time, and if you want something that will last for a few seasons at the park and at the beach, you’ll find that they are worth your while. If you are looking for something a little newer, make sure that you take a look at the sandals that look like they have been crossed with sneakers. These sandals tend to made of vinyl, plastic or rubber, and they have a slightly high-tech look to them. They often come with a cushioned sole and a lot of adjustments that you can make for the perfect fit for your purposes.
Like it or not, Winter will be lingering around for at least 2 more months, so you might still want to think about sporting some stylish, yet sturdy boots. Fewer people wear boots in the summer, but if you value foot protection, boots are still a good choice. This year, we’re seeing a lot of light desert boots, which are perfect for many different activities. These short boots with their flat color and their simple lines and clean design are perfect for city or country fun.
Take a moment to think about what your options for great footwear are, and think about dressing well for the year ahead.
