Choose Plimsolls for a Casual Summer Look
I’ve talked a lot about leather shoes and why they’re the number one option for a stylish outfit. I’ve even taken it one step further and discussed some unusual models, such as monk strap and saddle shoes.
But these leather shoes have one BIG problem: they become uncomfortable after walking in them for a few hours. Now, if it’s autumn or spring, you don’t have much of a choice. But if it’s summer, guess what?
There are a number of summer shoes available and plimsolls are one of them. They’re comfy, they’re trendy and you can get them for less than $50.
Why are plimsolls so great?
Plimsolls, when part of the right outfit, will give you that laid back look that you should project all summer long. While plimsolls are considered a type of athletic shoe, it’s ok to wear them in casual situations.
Matching your plimsolls
Needless to say, you need to match them with the rest of your outfit. Let’s take this model right here:
This will go great with a white canvas belt. Since you’re putting together a casual look, a thick belt is the only way to go.
The secret to matching plimsolls is to repeat the color on the canvas. if they have blue, repeat the blue on your pants or t-shirt. Color repetition is a must when putting together a stylish outfit.
If you get a pair with two colors on them, make sure you repeat both of them in your outfit.
Taking care of your plimsolls
The biggest problem plimsolls have is the white rubber sole, which gets dirty very easily. What I recommend is to wash the sides of the sole with a moist cloth after each wear. if you don’t do this, in time, that white will eventually turn to grey.
