Without a doubt, the most frequently asked question I get from the men in my life regarding their attire is: “do these shoes go with these trousers?” Firstly, no. For the ninth time white trainers do not go with navy suit pants, and secondly why is this such a huge part of your getting dressed?
Thankfully Justin Jeffers, editor of men’s style blog The Fine Young Gentlemen, has created a simple chart so the colour co-ordination between your pants and footwear will puzzle you no more!
The left column features the colour of trousers you wish to wear, and on the right you can see which shoe colours will go with your outfit. If they work, the co-ordinating box will be shaded the colour of the shoe, if not you’ll get a massive NO.
Jeffers and we here at Lifehack acknowledge that there will always be preferences and exceptions; this is simply a general overview of which colours are complimentary!
Do you agree with this chart or do you like to live outside the laws of colour harmony? Do you agree that navy shoes are more wearable than black shoes?
