Boots and winter shoes
Boot-wise, it’s all about the three Cs for men this season: Chelsea, chunky and chukka. Opt for sandy desert and antique brown hues that pair well with light denim (another of this season’s top menswear trends), or keep things classic with a polished black boot that will double up as a great workwear and evening shoe.
A suede chukka (a key transitional style) from the likes of Timberland or Dune will help you channel the American Western trend pulling through for AW20, while solid chunky soled boots from the likes of Crew Clothing or Guess are a must for combatting the cold on frosty mornings.
Classic brogues and tasteful Derby and Oxford shoes are his go-to for dressier days this autumn/winter, providing the perfect accompaniment to 70s-styles suits, sparkly co-ords and corduroy trousers in bright colour pops. Substitute grey and blue hues for ultra-traditional tan, chocolate and black, being careful to invest in real leather styles, which only improve with age.
An Oxford shoe from the likes of Dune or Kurt Geiger offers a stylish office option that blends harmoniously with tailored trousers in this season’s retro checks, while a tan brogue (try Daniel Footwear) looks timeless paired with smart jeans in dark denim.
Chunky shell trainers, retro high-tops and performance-style running shoes are all top trainer trends this season, while there’s only one rule when it comes to colour: avoid anything that isn’t all white from heel to toe. Autumn/winter 20 is all about trainers that that offer a classic and paired-back aesthetic.
Whether you like to lace-up for sports or just style, you’ll find a wide selection of trainers types on offer at [Brand], Timberland and Converse. Alternatively, make a beeline for Ted Baker or Vans where you’ll also be able to stock up on essential AW20 accessories as well.
