These classic suede desert boots are the Lems Chukka in lionsmane. My style tips are to balance the saturated color with the other elements of your outfit so they don’t clash. You’ll usually want such intense shoes to be your pop of color with maybe one other pop of color, although you can pull off more color if you pick up the yellow or orange tones, or stick to monochrome colors that pair well with tans and oranges, like light blue. Earth tones are another fantastic option for barefoot shoes in this color range.
Express dress pants, Old Navy button-up shirt, Land’s End flannel button-down shirt. A striking smart casual outfit, mixing the formality of beige dress pants and a white button-up with rugged suede desert boots and a fitted button-down flannel as an overshirt. The yellow details pick up the warm tones below and help to keep such a colorful outfit feeling cohesive.
Faded Glory black jeans, Old Navy linen button-down shirt, Uniqlo supima v-neck tee. A streamlined casual outfit with black and charcoal grey underneath a linen shirt worn open. A good outfit for breezy summer nights.
American Eagle extreme flex jeans, Alfani faux leather jacket, Uniqlo crewneck pocket tee. Classic blue jeans with a heather dark grey t-shirt and black leather jacket. A nice early spring outfit.
American Eagle Extreme Flex jeans, Express button-up shirt, Uniqlo supima tee. Blue jeans and a white tee are a staple outfit and a great base for layering, such as this statement piece purple and magenta plaid shirt. When kept to subtler details and patterns, it’s quite easy to incorporate less common colors in menswear!
