They go best with tailored trousers, brogues, like this eye-catching two-tone pair from Steve Madden, also go well with chinos and a shirt.



Oxfords may seem apt to pair with a formal look but depending on the material and colours used, they also are perfect to dress up a casual look. This one from Pavers England will pair well with chinos.


An alternative to the traditional mojris, mules – like this pair from Metro – will complete your festive look.


Smart moccasins can be worn with slim fit chinos and an Oxford shirt. A rule of thumb is to ensure that the colour of your moccasins is darker than that of the chinos – like this pair from Ruosh – so that your shoes remain the centre of attention.   Like this article?
