How to Wear Sandals for Men
That tricky dilemma of understanding how to style a pair of sandals has haunted men for years. That’s largely down to the fact that we rarely, if ever, get a decent summer, so our legs are never on show. But fear not, the modern way to wear sandals isn’t just confined to pairing them with shorts. There’s a whole new approach to dressing up or dressing down a pair of men’s sandals this season.
Sandals With Shorts
Let’s start with the basics. Shorts and sandals are your wardrobe’s best friends, and when paired together during the summer months they make for a match made in heaven. Short Lengths vary depending on the style you want to go for – be it a smarter chino that hits just below the knee, a pair of denim cut-offs frayed at the hem, or even swim shorts that are bright enough to catch the attention of anyone sunbathing on the beach.
Sandals With Trousers
For smarter occasions, or when the weather isn’t looking quite as sunny but you still want to vibe a casual summer style, wearing sandals with trousers is an ideal alternative to the shorts-sandals combination especially in our weather type here in the Philippines. Thanks to menswear designers pushing the resort lines over the past few years wearing sandals on a day-to-day basis has become common practice in society. No longer should sandals be confined to the beach, instead men can decide to wear them out and about during the day, from the city or to the beach
On That Note
What have you taken away from our guide on how to wear sandals for men? Remember it’s all about combining comfort with style, but ultimately it’s about what occasion you’ll be wearing sandals for. If it’s for a beach getaway then it’s not worth investing in an expensive pair of leather sandals, save those for the office. And if you’re looking to pursue sporting activities then look for a design that combines durable materials with arch support. Style sandals with shorts, chinos, denim or tailored trousers, they’re the ideal summer shoe of choice, perhaps maybe all year round
