We’ve recently begun a new year, and this year we need to be as stylish as ever. This might be a good time to re-evaluate any formal footwear you currently have in your closet. You can’t just jump into the new year wearing a pair of old, worn-out dress shoes.
So what do people mean exactly when they say, “dress shoes”? Generally, these are men’s shoes you would wear with a suit or something elegant. When it comes to dress shoes, certain types dominate. These can be dependent on the event or occasion they’ll be worn to and also the wardrobe they’re to be paired with. For many men, the Oxford shoe will pair well for most occasions. Meant for formal gatherings, a pair of Oxford shoes for men is something that should not be missing from any shoe closet.
You can also go for casual dress shoes made of fabric, suede, or any other kind of “casual” material. An advantage of these shoes is that you’re not limited to a tuxedo or suit and that you can even wear them with jeans. It all depends on your sense of style.
Speaking of style, what are some models that men don’t seem to get tired of? Well, have a look at some of these recent popular dress shoes that are available.
Calvin Klein Bram Diamond Textured Oxfords
If there’s anything that we know about famous designers, it’s that they never go out of style. Mixing a diamond-textured pattern with sleek, beautiful black leather, these shoes are still one of the top choices that people decide to take on a formal trip. Plus, the square toe is unique and elegant and will offer a nice, special touch to every one of your outfits.
With a combination of detail and smooth leather, these shoes will be able to provide the style you’re looking for while remaining professional. The toe is pointed, drawing more attention to the shoes themselves and the laces are simple and easy, providing a nice touch. The synthetic sole is also made to be durable and comfortable, making them easy to wear.
Kenneth Cole Leather Monk Strap Dress Shoes
Black is always in style, which is why these Kenneth Cole shoes are also a popular pair. They’re even more popular thanks to the fact that they use monk straps instead of shoelaces, which makes it easier for you to take your shoes off and on. Plus, they can be slightly more attractive than footwear with shoelaces, so we can understand their popularity.
With these shoes, you’ll be able to display a more regal appearance, seeing as they vaguely resemble something royalty would have don many years ago. The heel also helps to add to overall height without drawing too much attention to the addition of a chunkier heal not often seen in men’s shoes.
Dream Pairs Bruno Homme Wingtip Oxford Shoes
Wingtip dress shoes are also a popular choice that men decided to bring into the new year, which is why this Dream Pairs model is so popular. The perforated leather design makes them perfect for those who walk around a lot. Not only are they very stylish – but they’re practical as well. Also, you have several color options to choose from.
The addition of the wooden heel makes them durable, and the design of the laces makes them easy to slide on and off. These shoes are also going to work well with a wider variety of clothing styles, meaning you can spruce up casual outfits with these shoes just as quickly as a suit.
Seakee Flat Oxford Shoes
Those looking for both comfort and style might be happy to know that the Seakee shoes are still highly stylish. While these shoes are made from PU leather (a humanmade leather made using leather combined with polyurethane), which is known for its elegance, they’re also casual enough to be worn with a pair of everyday trousers or jeans. Practical shoes that you can wear just about anywhere will always be in style.
Dockers Gordon Cap Toe Oxford Shoes
Some men dislike shoes that make their feet look as if they’re shrinking as they reach the toe. They like those that have a little more substance, which is why this Dockers pair is considered very stylish. Indeed, they still have the Oxford look, but the toe cap is wider and rounder.
These shoes are unique in that they bring together the look of a more durable work shoe and the style of a dress shoe. Because of that, you’ll be able to wear them in meetings as well as regular work activities without having to worry that they’ll fail in either. The thicker leather material will also help them to last a long time.
Blivener Tuxedo Dress Shoes
Dress shoes that have a sporty look are still in style nowadays. Comfortable shoes will never go out of style – and while sneakers and suits have always been frowned upon, people still manage to find their way around them. Now we can’t get enough of them.
For those who are looking to stand out a little more in the office, these shoes are a great way to do it. They’re also made to be very flexible and breathable so you’ll be comfortable wearing them all day. They’re available in a variety of colors for those looking for shoes that will match their style.
Rainlin Perforated Oxford Dress Shoes
We live in a time when we like to add color to our lives – so why not add a pair of red oxford shoes into the mix as well? This pair is popular not only because it’s breathable and summer-friendly, but because it’s also lively and colorful. There’s no place for boring wardrobe items nowadays, which is why these shoes continue to be in style.
These are a great choice for those who want to stand out while maintaining a professional appearance. They can make the office a little livelier, and help you feel more unique as you go about your day. Furthermore, you’ll be able to get a lot of comfort from these shoes due to their breathability.
Mio Marino Suede Dress Shoes
Once more, dress shoes that can be worn with just about any outfit will always stay in style. There’s nothing more practical than a pair of shoes that you can wear both at work and a fun night out. These Mio Marino shoes are perfect to be paired with both jeans and tuxedos, which is why they’re still considered to be in style.
Many tend to prefer dress shoes with a simple but stylish appearance. The gradient that leads from the main section down toward the toe in some varieties can also draw the eye. For a further ability to adapt these shoes to almost any style, they’re available in a wide range of colors.
Bostonian Slip-On Shoes
Time is money, which is why you shouldn’t be wasting it on tying up shoelaces. This is exactly why slip-ons such as the Bostonian leather dress shoes remain so popular. Simple and with no extra inconveniences, all you have to with these dress shoes is slip your feet in, and you’re good to go. No shoelaces to tie is one reason why this particular model is so popular.
With elegant simplicity, these are fantastic for those who want to look good and not have to worry about receiving too much attention directed to their shoes. The added stretch in the top also makes them easy to put on and wear comfortably.
Bruno Marc Urban Suede Oxford Shoes
The classic look will always be fashionable, but it’s often better when you can also give the dress shoes a modern twist. Made from suede leather and having a wingtip design, these dress shoes are trendy among men for smart casual or formal events. Plus, with the right clothing, you could also wear them on a regular night out.
For those who prefer suede to leather, these are a great option. In combination with the classic appearance, they also come in a wider range of colors so that you can get what you need to suit just about any outfit.
When in doubt, always go for Oxford. This classic design will never go out of style, especially when you have a formal event coming up. As a youngster, you could go for something smart casual, such as a suede pair with a colorful design. On the other hand, if you’re on the more formal, “somber” side, the classic full-grain Oxfords are still popular and trendy, a welcome addition to keep in your wardrobe.
