WTWW ~ How to Wear Brown

The kids are back in school and the weather is slowly changing. It’s time for another “What to Wear Wednesday”. The color brown is the new neutral of the season. Don’t worry, black is not going anywhere. But, it’s been awhile since we have seen brown on our feet as a fashion color so, we thought we would show you some examples of how we would wear this versatile shade.

Faux fur in every style and color is the coat of the season. We would wear this “teddy bear” coat with these two-tone ankle boots from Ernesto Dolani. They’re borrowed from the boys, yet slightly feminine with its chunky heel.

If you haven’t already noticed. Plaid everything is also the trend when it comes to prints. Besides wearing these oxfords with pants, we would gladly wear them with tights and a dress. Moma’s wingtip design and rich coffee color make them the perfect match for an outfit like this.

We are diggin all the spicy tone colors in ready to wear for this season. We love pumpkin, rust, mustard, ochre and olive greens. Best neutral to go with? Brown of course! We would wear these dark chocolate beauties from Ernesto Dolani with everything!

Our Favorite Colors for Fall

Who is ready for the change of seasons, and do we dare say, the rain? The fires in the PNW have made our skies smokey and we are ready for a little rain to clean up our atmosphere in Seattle. As more collections arrive at the shop, we definitely have some favorite colors that are inspiring us for the Fall/Winter season. Here are just a few to get you in the mood.

Deep, rich, dark blue. An alternative to black and slightly less edgy.  We love the shade of navy on this Officine Creative Chelsea boot.  We would wear these with jeans or basic black leggings. They would also look wonderful with longer skirts and of course anything dark blue.

Dark espresso brown with a slight hue of cool gray is the best way to describe the color of this bag from Aunts and Uncles. The perfect carry-all that can convert itself from a handbag to a tote.  We would carry this bag when we are wearing shades of olive green, gray or dark chocolate brown. Perfectly acceptable with black too.

Fresh and cool, deep greens are another favorite here at re-souL. Green is a versatile shade that can be worn with navy, gray, black and wine. These oxfords by MOMA are a basic style that would go with most anything in your wardrobe.

WTWW: Top 3 Men’s Shoe Trends

Each Wednesday we’ll answer the on-going question: “What do I wear with these?”  It’s a question we get quite often here at the shop and we love giving suggestions when helping our customers. This week we are helping out the guys. 

WTWW: Satorisan Benirras mid top leather casual

Desert boots or chukka boots have been trending for several seasons, so much so that we consider them a classic style. We like this one from Satorisan, meant to be worn without socks and designed with side vents to keep your feet cool. The leather sock liner and foam rubber sole mold to your feet making them super comfortable. Wear these with your chinos and a short sleeve woven shirt for a casual Friday at work.

 

WTWW: Officine Creative Anatomia 43 Woven Oxford

A smart update to your work shoe collection is a woven oxford. Perfect for summer weather to be worn with or without socks. We like this laceless style from Officine Creative. The handwoven leather is rich in color and texture. We would pair these with jeans and a linen sport coat and forget the laces and the socks, or not.

 

WTWW: re-souL Sam woven flip flop

Okay guys, time to up your game when it comes to sandals. Ditch the thongs (at least once in awhile) for a comfortable leather slide style. Wear them with a pair of Bermuda shorts and a long sleeve linen shirt and you won’t get funny looks the next time you frequent that trendy restaurant wearing your rubber flip-flops. Instead you’ll be admired for your casual laid-back look.

Thanks for stopping by, we hope you have a great rest of your week! To view more styles for guys visit us at resoul.com.
