When it comes to footwear for the well-dressed man, boots are right at the top of that list.
Anatomic & Co takes a look at the Desert, Chelsea and Ankle boot and how these boot styles work with a range of looks.
The Desert boot
The desert boot is crafted with soft, flexible material and handmade style design. This type of shoe is ideal for warmer times as the shoe ensures your feet stay cool and comfortable.
However, it’s not just summer outfits that they work with. Desert boots and jeans are a classic combination – try stick with neutral shades to get the most out of your desert boots. Add a plain tee and you’ll be ready for a casual day out.
For a smarter sophisticated look, team your desert boots with denim jeans and just about any button-up shirt.
The Chelsea boot
The inherently cool boot is a style booster for many outfits. Thanks to their sleek appearance, Chelsea boots can work with both casual and formal outfits.
For casual wear, try opting for a brown or suede pair. Then, complete your look with jeans, a T-shirt and a jacket.
Alternatively, for a smarter look, opt for a pair of black or burgundy leather Chelsea boots and partner them with your tailored suit.
The Ankle boot
Another highly versatile boot style in the Ankle boot, which reaches just above the ankle. The shoe can be partnered with a variety of outfits, including casual and smart casual attire.
You can pair your ankle boots or chukkas with either jeans or trousers and a button-up shirt or sweater.
Men have been wearing boots for many years and they have evolved over time into something that’s now so much more than just a practical shoe.
Today, boots work with both smart casual and semi-formal outfits, making them a valuable wardrobe addition for any stylish gentleman.
That being said, not all boot styles work with all occasions, so it’s important to know when and where you can dress up different types and the best ways to style them.
