Do you know how to match shoe color with suit color? Do you know what color socks you should never wear, or when to wear a belt and when not to wear a belt? If not, don't worry--today we're here with some men's wardrobe tips to keep you looking smart and sharp.

Accessorizing Your Suit

Men's suits can make a professional and robust statement. They highlight naturally attractive features with classy cuts, eye-catching color combinations, and, of course, some well-chosen accessories. But, go a few steps too far and suddenly your suit looks sloppy. How do you walk that fine line between a sophisticated suit and a wacky wardrobe? Simple: you make sure your accessories draw attention to the suit and not to themselves.

Here are a few simple wardrobe tips to get you started!

Matching Shoes to Your Suit

Matching shoes to your suit isn't always easy, but it's a must if you want to keep your outfit sleek and professional. Try these color combinations:

  • Black suit = black shoes.
  • Gray suit = brown, black, or burgundy shoes.
  • Navy suit = brown, black, or burgundy shoes.
  • Beige suit = light brown shoes.

The Right Socks

If at all possible, you should avoid wearing white socks. You want to match your socks to the color spectrum of your suit--or choose an unusual color or design to make them more of a fashion statement.

Adding Belts and Suspenders

Typically, your belt should match your shoes. However, if you're wearing suspenders, you should never wear a belt. This helps keep your ensemble looking smart and well-organized--and it makes it easier to get dressed, too.
