From your haircut to your handshake, there are a number of factors that we judge each other on and, yes, one of them is shoes. So to make the right impression from the ground up, we've pulled together 5 essential Autumn shoes for you to wear right through until Spring.
The Lace Up Boot
When the weather changes, a masculine pair of boots will see you right through the coldest months. They're made for the outdoors. Team with a thick pair of socks, preferably in a rugged twisted yarn. Or wear with rolled up dark or mid-wash denim. Even if the closest you'll come to a country walk is Autumn watch, you can still look the part in a checked shirt and sweater. Then pull on a thick, fur-trimmed parka and a knitted beanie to battle the elements.
The Chelsea Boot
If you're looking for a versatile and smart option, go for the Chelsea boot this Autumn/Winter. Whether teamed with black denim jeans and an Oxford shirt or your work suit, a pair of black or brown Chelsea boots will not let you down. Perfect accompaniment with a smart-casual weekend look, take yourself from a coffee shop to the latest swanky craft beer place in a pair of Chelsea boots.
The plimsoll should be your go-to casual shoe this Autumn. They're seriously easy to style with a pair of your favourite jeans or chinos. Whether in material, leather look or suede, stay comfortable during your downtime in a casual plimsoll.
The classic lace up
Simple and sleek, this smart shoe is a definite in your formal wardrobe. Polish off your work wear or gear for a smart event with a pair of lace-up shoes. In one way or another, you'll always going to need some smart footwear.
The Monk strap shoe
A classic shoe that uses buckles rather than laces to fasten, the Monk shoe can work in many a different situation. Recognisable by its buckle strap and no laces, the Monk shoe is a great choice to wear with your suit or formal trousers. Choose a pair in a neutral shade such as brown, black or burgundy to add to your formal wardrobe.
