BRING BACK VINTAGE: SADDLE SHOES
Style
January 23, 2015

Here’s a fashion flashback we can still get down with: saddle shoes! Renowned for their huge popularity in the 1950s, these sporty oxfords were found everywhere from the golf club to the dance floor to high school gym class. And now they’re back on trend—and more comfortable and versatile than ever!

COFFEE CASUAL     

If khakis and a lightweight button-down is your typical uniform, here’s an easy way to totally flip this look on its head: add saddle shoes and some super-skinny suspenders. It’s a nod to the punk era and the ’50s era all in one—and it works! 

 

DAYTIME DAPPER

Slim-fitting denim + a snug vest + a tie = a man who looks like he’s got it all together. This outfit is relaxed, refined, and ideal for a date night that starts with dinner and ends at a brewery, a local concert, a sports bar—anything goes! 

 

EVENING VINTAGE

If you think you’ve mastered that vest and tie combo, try something a little more daring by adding some color—burgundy jeans, perhaps? A simple scarf draped across the shoulders tops off this neat and polished look.
